KAMLOOPS – There is no shortage of things to do with the kids, or places to send the kids, over the new and improved two-week spring break in Kamloops.
The Thompson-Nicola school board voted to extend spring break from one to two weeks last year.
Spring break kicks off Monday, March 16 before wrapping up on Friday, March 27 with all kinds of activities and day camps planned by various organizations around town. The best advice is to pre-register for the camps in case the one you want is full.
You can send the kids to the camps at the Kamloops Art Gallery for the day or a week at a time. Head to the KAG website for all the details.
Also for kids who love art, there are spring break camps at the 4Cats Arts Studio. Painting and sculpting during the first week at the Good Luck Camp, while street art is covered at the Graffiti Camp during the second week of spring break. The studio’s website has all the details.
For the theatrical arts, the Western Canada Theatre’s Stage One Theatre School is offering a chance for children and teens to act, sign or dance with its spring break classes. All the details can be found here.
