Classes are out for spring break in Bartholomew County, giving local kids and their families a chance to have fun close to home. Two examples could be found last week at Foundation For Youth and First Christian Church.

Supervised activities at FFY involved about 60 children, from kindergarten to high-school age. Activities are built around daily themes, including dinosaurs, baseball, Harry Potter and the weather, said Marie Hamilton, teen staff organizer of “March Madness.”

Visitors can purchase one-day passes for activities through Wednesday. Information:

372-7867.

At the church, 144 children came from across the county to be a part of the inaugural Mega Sports Camp, which is similar to Vacation Bible School, said Jenny Lowry, director of children’s ministry at the church.

It is a mix of sports skill-building, music and Bible-based learning during the half-day program supported by 80 adult and volunteers.
