COVID-19 means most of us are on a summer staycation. There are no flights to the East Coast, road trips to Disneyland or once in a lifetime European vacations. Add limited social contact and you have squirrely kids in need of a creative outlet!
Thankfully, Kidsworld has a solution. This steal-of-a-deal family program is an affordable way to experience a mix of over 30 on and offline experiences, places and activities in the Lower Mainland this August.
Each $40 pass gives a child and an adult complimentary access to an incredible array of events each week in August from arts and coding classes to museums, farms and martial arts. PS: There’s even bowling!
Six Cool Kidsworld Activities
Here are just a few of the fun activities included with your Kidsworld pass.
Fraser River Discovery District
Explore the fabulous critters of the Fraser River Basin in-person through games, crafts and science experiments. There will be bear skulls, test tubes, fish art and so much more. Try to survive life as a sturgeon, test your hand at fishing, sharpen a traditional knife.

Got a kid with energy to burn? They’ll love this in-person intro to Taekwondo at Surrey’s Kickit BC school, which teaches Olympic style Taekwondo.
Don’t take our word for it!
I bought Kidsworld passes for my 5 and 10 year old kids this past summer, and we had such a great time!
Excellent value – you pay for your pass with just one or two events. And many events you couldn’t do on your own, so some really unique opportunities.
