Finding programs for your children when school is not in session can be stressful. Marion County agencies are easing the stress this holiday season by opening sign up early and offering partial scholarships to families in need. So call, text or chat with 2-1-1 online to find a winter break camp near you.
Ocala Parks and Rec: Lillian Bryant will be providing the only FREE option, that we are aware of, for Winter Break.
