About Winter Break Camps - Circus Day Camp & Baking Day Camp

Learn a cool new skill before going back to school!

This Winter Break Baxter is hosting two of our most popular programs.

Run away to the Circus with Kiki / Isabella Hoops from NorthFIRE Circus & Opal of the Peterborough Academy of Circus Arts (PACA). These two one-day camps will introduce your child(ren) to Hula Hooping, Juggling, Poi, Balancing, Aerial Arts and more!


Learn how to Bake from Scratch with Sharon Hart, part of our Kids in the Kitchen series! Creating magic in the kitchen is one of the best art forms and a great way to show friends and family how much you care. Who doesn't love warm cookies right from the oven! Your child(ren) will spend the day learning about recipes, the importance of measuring, and how to create a few tasty baked goods.
