Spring break is a short vacation from school for students to relax and enjoy their time off. Students enjoy this time away from school, but what can students actually do to fill their time? Below are some Spring Break ideas you can try:
Grab some friends and your GPS and take off. Road trips can be fun and cheap. Experience scenic views; visit family and friends, stay at hotels, go shopping, visit big cities, let loose and just get away.
Plan a vacation with family or friends. There are plenty of spring break destinations. Grab your sun block and your flip-flops and enjoy the time wherever you go.
This can be an amazing experience. Get in touch with nature and your surroundings. You can stay in a tent, RV, or a cabin with your closest friends. You can go fishing, canoeing, and make a campfire. But don’t forget the bug spray!
This is the cheapest option and it can make you feel good for helping others. You can give blood, tutor, or help cleanup in your community. Whatever you choose, it is bound to be a fulfilling experience.
Along with the recreational activities that you can do, here are events happening in your community:
• Dancing with the Cumberland County Stars, Friday, March 18, 6-11p.m: Evening begins with cocktails followed by a buffet, dinner and dancing. Music provided by Jack Neff Band. Tickets are $45. Proceeds benefit the Cumberland County TEC Foundation Scholarship Fund.
• Dog obedience classes will be held on Wednesday evenings, starting on March 16 and ending on April 20. Classes will be held at the 4-H Center located at 291, Morton Avenue in Rosenhayn.
• The Millville Army Air Field Museum will be hosting its next Movie Night on Tuesday, March 8, starting at 6 p.m. in the Henry E. Wyble Research Library at the Millville Airport.
The evenings featured film will be ‘To Hell and Back’, the true-life story of America’s most decorated hero, Audie Murphy. The
guest speaker will be Robert Trivellini. He will show a brief educational film that honors veterans interviewed by students in the Museum’s Veteran Interview Project. Admission is free.
Whether you go on a short road trip with friends, tutor a fellow student, or give back to your community, do something different during your spring break this year so you can cherish the memories you created.
