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.

The three-day Mountain Monkey Camp is for the older kids, nine to 14-years-old, runs Tuesday, March 25 to Thursday, March 26. More details at the Cliffside Climbing website.

There will be no shortage of running, jumping and bouncing at the Kamloops Gymnastics and Trampoline Centre day camps. There are camps for pre-school children and kids from ages five to 12. Check out the website for all the information you need.

The B.C. Wildlife Park camps are all about, well, wildlife. Kids get a chance to explore everything from bugs to snakes. The Wildlife Park gives parents the option for registering for just one camp or a week at a time. For more information and to register go the website.

Lots of hands-on science fun at the BIG Little Science Centre spring break camps. Organizations say there will be explosions. All the details can be found at the Science Centre website.

Don’t forget the Kamloops Library. There are various activities planned everyday over the two weeks of spring break. From games and puzzles, to all day Lego, there is something for everyone. A full schedule of events is on library’s website.

And it’s spring skiing and boarding at Sun Peaks Resort, which is open daily during the two weeks of spring break. Check out the website for more information.
