Check Your Local Library

Whether it’s a virtual book club or a craft hour (sometimes characters visit too!), there’s something for the whole family at your local library. The Camden County Library System is hosting a virtual dungeon and dragons game on Dec. 28, and the Burlington County Library branches are hosting winter break events like family game time, an escape room, a toddler dance party and DIY teen crafts.

Get Up Close and Personal with the Animals

Cape May County Park & Zoo

Bundle up to get up close with the animals at the Cape May County Park & Zoo. Grab the whole family and sign up for an animal encounter with a capybara, camels or reptiles to get some 1-on-1 time with the animals and zookeepers. Or, stop by on your own to get a look at lions, tigers and lots of other animals, without the summer crowds. For more information, visit the website.
