Spring break programming ranges from cooking to sports

It might be the most well-worn child’s lament since the simple, nobody-loves-me cry. And that would be — drum roll, please — “There’s just nothing to do.”

Lest such big boredom pull up a chair in the comfort of your home during spring break, take evasive action now. At least staffers at Columbus’ Foundation for Youth hope you’ll do so.

That’s because the nonprofit agency that caters to kids through Boys Club and Girls Club activities has compiled a list of classes, sports and other involvements to make this spring break, the week of March 16, an exciting, memorable one.

They’re offering art, swimming, reading, outdoor recreation, cooking, archery, hiking, canoeing and well, you get the picture. Enough possibilities to stiff-arm the dull-drums until summer. Activities include programming at Columbus Youth Camp.

Hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Costs vary depending upon activity. Breakfast, lunch and a snack are provided each day.
