During the February and April school vacations, LEAP offers Vaca-Playdays for children in grades K-5 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Vaca-Playdays is open to all Lincoln students, not just those who are already enrolled in LEAP. Kids will have the opportunity to get out of the house and hang out with friends in a relaxed and fun-filled environment at LEAP.
“I like to think of the LEAP building like a giant ship. We’re all on a themed cruise together. Since we aren’t going on a family vacation, we go with our friends on the Vaca-Playdays cruise in our imaginations,” says LEAP director Katie Hawkins.
Parents must register and pay by the deadline (see below). Prices per child are below. Register online at the Lincoln Recreation Department website.
