February school break day care, day camp options
PARK CITY, Utah — President’s Week break for Park City schools can create trouble for some local families. While schools are out for February Recess, local childcare options are sold out or blacked out for locals. Many parents with even part-time resort-related jobs have mandatory work schedules to accommodate predicted travel trends of out-of-town visitors whose families are simultaneously on school breaks.
Chances are, if families are not in that situation, they may be traveling out of town on vacation, thus unable to help with play dates of friends and neighbors that week. If grandma, grandpa, aunt, or uncle live somewhere other than Park City, it can feel like there are zero options.
Thankfully, here are some options:
President’s Week Adventure Camp (Monday-Friday or daily)
