DeKalb offering cheap, but fun winter camp for two weeks



For most children, the highlight of their winter break is opening gifts.

But, if you’re looking for a bit more creative stimulation, the DeKalb County Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs is offering a winter break day camp with recreational and art activities for children between the ages of 5 and 12.
