A Note from Holly & Tom

September 29-October 1, 2022

Whoa Reindeer!  The time is finally here!  The 85th year of the CWH Santa Claus School!


It's time to get ready for the 2022 Santa School year! The Santa Claus legend has endured many centuries. The CWH Santa Claus School has BECOME a legend as it enters this century with its 85th year of classes.  We are inspired and impressed by the school's history and the Santa Claus legend.


We come together to share our common love of Christmas and the magical spirit of Santa Claus. The School will be filled with the love, laughter, and learning that has made it the oldest and most famous school of its kind. We will cover all the traditions and values that began 84 years ago, along with new and updated information to keep us all in good shape; physically, mentally, and spiritually.


During the Santa School, you will meet Santas and Mrs. Santas from around the world, who together have over 1000 years of Santa experience. Everyone will contribute stories and suggestions that make up the Santa lore. The knowledge gained and the wonderful people attending cannot be described as anything short of magically Christmas!


The school will be in session September 29, 30 & October 1, 2022.  It will be held at various convenient places in Midland, Michigan. We would love you to be a part of our 2022 school year. It wouldn't be the same without you. Class begins at 9:00 a.m. on September 29, 2022.


Come and experience what Christmas and CWH Santa Claus School dreams are made of!
