VM Picks: Spring Break Camps, a Q&A with Grouse Mountain
Can you say snow day? Or snow week? It’s GLORIOUS in the mountains right now, so why sign the kids up for an active snowy Spring Break Camp on Grouse Mountain? They have day and week-long camps for ages 5-7s and 8-12s and 12-14s. We chatted with Julia Grant, Communications Manager at Grouse Mountain about their Spring Break Adventure Camps.
1. Give us a brief description of your spring break activities.
In our Spring Break Adventure Camps, we’re embracing the outdoors. Activities include snowshoeing, skating, meeting our resident owls and more. Each camp day has a different theme and activities – putting fun, play, learning and exploration at the forefront. Be prepared to have a blast this Spring Break!
2. What makes your spring break options unique?
With distinct daily themes, each camp is united in common goals of inspiring kids to play outdoors, make friends, enjoy unique experiences, connect with nature and discover this beautiful province we call home.
3. What are 2 major highlights of your spring break activities, something the kids will talk about after they leave:
Kids can discover the wonders of winter wildlife, meet our resident owl and learn how the Mountain’s wildlife gets ready for winter. Our winter Scavenger Hunt is sure to create lasting memories as camp groups explore the mountaintop in a race to solve riddles and complete the course first!
4. What will kids learn through your spring break activities?
We offer fantastic learning opportunities, from what to do if you get lost on a mountain and how to be responsible in an alpine mountain environment to how our mountain wildlife prepares for winter. Don’t forget new skills like sliding and skating.
