Winter

Can you believe it, the Winter Holidays are in less than 2 weeks! I can’t believe it! I’m not always super prepared, like some parents, so I tend to scramble a bit to fill the Winter Break Holiday days. We are very privileged to have such amazing outdoor activities and some great places to visit to fill the days, but what if you still have to work? And unfortunately, you can’t play in the snow all day.

Luckily there are some Winter Camps that are a great opportunity for kids to learn a new skill and have some fun. Here are a couple opportunities for kids to get excited about.

Music and STEM Winter Camps

School of Rock Vancouver

Whether your child loves to sing and dance around the house or is terrified to step on stage, theatre classes instill valuable life skills.  Acting helps students put themselves in the shoes of a character and imagine another world. Hone your child’s natural talents, and build resiliency, and creativity from professional educators. Classes for ages 6-7 are currently offered at Gateway Theatre.
