Tired of hearing, "I'm bored" every Spring Break? Treasure Valley parents hoping to avoid such complaints have plenty of options to keep their unoccupied adolescents busy.

Kids age 5-12 can learn to ice skate with the pros at Idaho IceWorld. Even if the kids don't find their hidden talent, they can still enjoy a week of skating, snacks, games and fun. The camp takes place from 8:30-11:30 a.m. daily and requires a single fee of $100. IceWorld is also hosting a hockey camp for ages 7-18. This competitive learning experience requires full hockey equipment along with a $125 fee. The camp will take place from 8:15-11:15 a.m daily.
