"Winter Wizarding School" Vacation Camp
The magical experience of Wizarding School returns to Strawbery Banke for fun during February break — complete with a sorting ceremony, house challenges, and the awarding of a house cup! Children who enjoy fantasy will not want to miss this experience. Participants engage in daily hands-on classes with a historical spin such as “Defense Against Dying,” Potion Making, Herbology, Care of Historical Creatures, and more. By the end of the week, campers take home a wand, many magical creations, and numerous great memories. Offered for ages 7-11. Space is limited to 30 campers and a minimum of 15 campers are needed to run the program. Register early to receive your Wizarding School acceptance letter. Members $275; Nonmembers $325.
Requests for a full refund for cancellations made prior to February 1, 2022, will be honored. Cancellations made after February 1, 2022, result in partial refunds and/or program credit.
