Spring Break | Local Activities for Kids | Lafayette

A Guide to Staying in Lafayette for Spring Break

Who says you have to go anywhere?

Although Spring Break is likely one of the most popular times to travel it can get very costly very fast! Who REALLY wants to spend thousand of dollars on a one week trip to only spend MORE money once you arrive? Why not use that money to redecorate or better yet, save up for a down-payment on a new home!

If you and your family have chosen a “stay-cation” over a “vacation” this year, here is a list of local activities you can sign your kids up for (so they aren’t bored to tears or attached to electronics for a solid week). With some of these events your entire family is welcome to attend!


March 27th-31st, 2017 : 9am – 4pm daily (Optional Extended Care Service Available)

“Come hang out at the Columbia Park Zoo! The Zoo will offer a spring break camp during the Lafayette School Corporation and Tippecanoe School Corp spring break week! This is a full-day camp session for ages 7-11 only. Kids will enjoy a fun-filled week exploring the wild world of animals through games, crafts, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities, and up-close encounters with live Animal Ambassadors!”

Fees: $132 for Members, $139 for Non-Members.  Extended care is available as a drop in service from 7:30am-9:00am and 4:00pm-5:30pm for an additional $20. Contact the Zoo Education Department at zooeducation@lafayette.in.gov or (765) 807-1540 for more info.
