For those who want to avoid travel crowds, a staycation is ideal and an invitation to explore your hometown! Edmond has many options to not just entertain, but engage families as they take a break from school and work. I’ve rounded up my top picks for Spring Break in Edmond.

Camps and Classes

For parents looking for not-your-average childcare or families interested in learning a new skill, camps and classes are a great option!

Camp Cadence at Cadence Equestrian invites campers to learn the full spectrum when it comes to riding and caring for horses. No prior riding experience is necessary. Half-day camp is offered during Spring Break for ages 5 to 15.

The Edmond Fine Arts Institute Spring Break Camp is perfect for blossoming creatives. Little artists will rotate between classes and create a variety of projects using methods like drawing, painting, clay, and mixed media. Classes are open to kids kindergarten through fifth grade at a per-day rate or a discount for those who sign up all week. These classes fill up, so don’t delay! 

Oops, I arted will soon open a new location in the Shoppes at Cheyenne. Risa Wilkins McKinney will offer new projects to celebrate her brand new space! Kids will enjoy painting, clay, and mixed media. Watch Facebook & Instagram for daily craft announcements. They are suited for ages 5 and up. Classes will take place in the afternoon and can be purchased by day.

Edmond Parks & Recreation offers a variety of classes and workshops year-round. Spring Break classes are offered at various times and locations and encourage families to enjoy the outdoors or connect with their artistic side. Choose from archery, fishing, mountain biking, fire building and campfire cooking, kayaking, crafts, music classes, a family ceramic bisque glaze studio, and a Spring Break Camp focusing on photography. 

Edmond History

The Edmond Historical Society & Museum will offer “Making History Crafts” at no charge and always offers free admission. Nature themed crafts and story time are open to all ages from 10am-2pm.

The 1889 Territorial Schoolhouse will invite children to experience school as it would have been in 1889. The “School’s Out Day Camp” will be held on Wednesday, March 18th from 8:30am-1:30pm for ages 6 and up.

Visit Unpluggits and let your child choose their own path! Make and take crafts are available as well as imaginative play opportunities and an indoor playground. 

Make a stop at Okie Kids for indoor play suited for younger kids, 6 and under. They have great coffee!
