Spend Winter Break Exploring the World at Santa Maria Day Camp

Celebrate winter and learn about the different holiday customs from around the world with the Winter Break Day Camp Program offered by the Santa Maria Recreation & Parks Department.

Each week will feature activities centered on various winter themes and different cultural holiday celebrations.

Whether participating in a variety of cooperative group games, cooking holiday treats or making a festive craft project, the staff is dedicated to filling each child’s day with adventure and learning in a safe, supportive environment, giving children a winter break to remember.

The program will be held at the Minami Community Center, 600 W. Enos Drive in Santa Maria, from7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The weekly sessions run from Dec. 22 through Jan. 16. The cost is $95 per week for full time (six hours or more per day) and $65 per week part time (less than six hours per day). Children must have completed kindergarten. There is no camp from Dec. 24-26 and Jan. 1-2 because of the holidays, and fees will be prorated for each week.

Registrations will be accepted only at the Recreation & Parks Department, 615 S. McClelland St. Space is limited, so register early.

For registration information, call the department at 805.925.0951, ext. 260.

Mark van de Kamp represents the Santa Maria city manager’s office.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
