Education

Join us this holiday season for a new adventure! Over 7-weeks campers will join Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, and of course, Charlie Brown for a holiday adventure that arrives at the true heart of Christmas. In a year that may feel a bit like Charlie Brown’s tree, join CFRT to capture some of the Christmas Spirit for your family.

Winter Camp will follow the same structure and safety guidelines as CFRT’s highly successful summer camps. Camps will be in person with social distancing and other safety precautions in place to provide a safe and fun holiday experience.
