VERNON - Spring break is fast approaching in the Vernon and North Okanagan-Shuswap School Districts, and with it, perhaps some questions about how to keep the kids busy.

Several organizations are offering spring break camps and activities over the two-week break from March 21 to April 1.

The Okanagan Regional Library in Vernon is putting on numerous workshops, including origami and shadow puppetry. For more information, or to register, click here.

The Okanagan Science Centre in Vernon is offering some sure-fire crowd pleasers, including camps that explore science and potions, and using science to create food. You can sign your child up for the week, or by the day. Find the full details here.

There’s always fun to be had at the Vernon Aquatic Centre. There are daily public swims — except for Easter Sunday. Check here for hours and rates.

Armstrong Parks & Recreation has a variety of programs and activities on supply, including rollerblading in the Hassen Arena, movies at Centennial Hall, and indoor paintball

Silver Star Mountain Resort has lots of outdoor fun to choose from, including skiing, snowshoeing, and tubing. Check out the $5 before 5 Friday special, and the $10 Friday and Saturday night promotions to save some money. 

If you’re looking to enjoy some family time with the kids, consider exploring your own backyard by foot. Ellison Provincial Park, Kalamalka Provincial Park, BX Creek Falls, and Middleton Mountain all boast wonderful hiking and biking trails.

We’d love to hear from our readers about other things to do during the spring break. Share with us in the comments, or email us at news@infonews.ca.
