Three kinds of March break fun

Tri Region Tourism Day Trip Ideas, Events, Seasonal Ideas

Ok, zippy monkeys, you have a whole week off school to play games, jump around and run in circles. Here are three places to have spring break fun in the Tri-region west of Edmonton.

Spring break at the library

The Stony Plain library is hosting a bunch of fun spring break programs Apr 1–4, 2014 ($3 per kid per day). See inside a real fire truck and meet rescue dogs. Listen to a book about a dog and meet him too. Start your own garden and play in a minecraft tournament.

From Tuesday, Apr 1 to Friday, Apr 4, make crafts and watch kids movies (at 11 am and 1 pm) at the Spruce Grove library. They are playing Garfield, Frozen, Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs and The Little Mermaid – all great movies.

Splash, run and play at Tri-leisure

Kids 3 to 12 years old can register for a full week of fun at the Tri-Leisure day camps. From March 31 – Apr 4, play sports, make crafts and join the games. See their winter program guide (PDF) for prices or register online.

The centre also has a great pool – the next Toonie swim is Mar 28 (from 6–10 pm). They also have an indoor playground and drop-in sports like skating, basketball, badminton and soccer.

Bounce-bounce-bouncing at Aerials Gym

You, my dear, are a busy kid with lots of energy – you would like spending a week climbing, jumping and bouncing on a trampoline. Kids 3 to 12 can register for Aerials Gym Club day camps in Spruce Grove. Certified coaches will lead you through the gym equipment, play games, have snack time and do crafts.

Kids ages 3 to 9 go for half a day and kids 10 to 12 stay all day long. Be an acrobat on the floor, balance on the beam, fly over the vault and bounce on the trampolines. Visit Aerials Gymnastics for more details and to register online and like Aerials Facebook page too.
