Why Winter Bonus Days?
At the Dairy Barn, we are forever striving to meet the changing needs of our community. For several years, we have offered a “Snow Camp” for when the Athens City School District closes due to inclement weather. However, in most recent years, attendance has significantly reduced and based on feedback from families, we have decided that we will no longer provide this service. However, parents have asked on many occasions if we offer anything for when school is scheduled off in advance for things like in-service days, conferences, and the days of holiday breaks where parents are typically due back at work. We have decided to offer programming on these days through the months we would normally offer snow camp (November till Spring Break Starts).
We are hoping that by offering a planned camp day on these days, parents can save up their vacation and personal days for actual snow days. In the event that this winter brings an especially high amount of cancelled days due to weather, we may start regular snow camp up based on demand from families.
Similarly, to Snow Camp of years past, Bonus Days will involve fun in the snow, art making, and games at the Barn!
