February Vacation at Joppa Flats: Animals of the Ice

Come learn about the animals of the polar habitats at the Joppa Flats Center

Joppa Flats Education Center vacation programs offer a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities while we keep minds active and hands busy during school break. Each session offers a different theme, with art activities, experiments, group games, and scheduled family presentations for everyone. It's free-flow learning for the whole family.
