Give Us a Break

Another two-week school break is less than a month away’€”spring break or spring breakdown?
Fear not: we’€™ve got the scoop on some great Spring Break camps to explore the diverse talents and interests of your budding artist, athlete or outdoor adventurer.

Let It Flow, Van Gogh
Place des Arts in Coquitlam has a great variety of art forms to experiment with in their full-day camps for 5 to 10 year olds, including cartooning, drama, dance, clay, painting and guitar. If Place des Arts is not in your ‘€˜hood, check out the full- or half-day performance and visual arts programs offered through Arts Umbrella’€™s Granville Island location, where you can customize your child’s schedule by choosing four daily classes.

Shoot to Score like Bobby Orr
If active play is their way to spend the day, then check out UBC’€™s Spring Break Multi-Sports Camp. Kids can try their skills at tennis, skating at the 2010 Olympic Legacy Douglas Mitchell Arena, swimming at the Aquatic Centre, take a visit to the Beady Biodiversity Museum and more (including a bit of down time). There are both full and half-day options available. Most community centres offer Sportball camps as well, so be sure to check out the local offerings.

Rock It, Davy Crockett
For a real outdoor camp experience, Camp Jubilee, near Deep Cove, is a great option for a week-long overnight camp, with canoeing, kayaking, hiking, archery, climbing, nature games and more. For a day-camp experience, try Sasamat Outdoor Centre near Belcarra.

Just Between Me and You, Nancy Drew
It’€™s a well-kept secret that independent schools and private sports clubs often have full-day camps available to the general public too. West Point Grey Academy on Vancouver’€™s West Side, has two weeks of full-day camp activities that include computer challenges, cooking, LEGO, floor hockey, mini golf, scavenger hunts and Easter egg decorating.

Now make a plan for yourself. The newest Bar Method studio is opening in West Vancouver on February 18, and could be a great place to get started.

So, break from routine this March with camps that let your kids find their flare.
