The Kamloops YMCA-YWCA is pleased to announce that Strength IN Being a Boy is taking a giant leap forward and presenting its’ 2nd annual event at the Tournament Capital Center (TCC) on April 25th, 2018. It will be a day filled with fun, engaging, and informative workshops and activities. Registration is now open!
After a fantastic one-day conference in 2017, we have decided to offer this unique opportunity to 80 boys in the community this year. This event is offered at no cost to boys 10, 11 and 12 years of age and will include a full day of fun and interactive workshops, start of the day and lunch time activities, and a great, yummy lunch provided by Uptown Chefs. This year, boys will see all of their favorite elements of last year’s Strength IN Being a Boy, with the addition of the following workshops:
Every day will be filled with time spent with each child’s “own” special horse. This includes a daily riding lesson and stable management lesson. (*Stable Management should prepare Campers for the written portion of the Equine Canada English Rider Levels 1-2). Campers will learn a variety of horsemanship skills on and off the horse and will partake in the day-to-day care each horse requires. The fun doesn’t stop! We have art, crafts & outdoor games too. More advanced riders may work on jumping and dressage tests.
Kamloops Child Development Centre (KCDC), a non-profit
organization dedicated to providing inclusive, nature-based child-care programming and support to children and families with unique or typical developmental needs, will host two fundraising events in April.
April 1 from 10am – 3pm • Eggs-Ceptional Easter at Rainbow’s Roost
In keeping with the nature-based philosophy of the KCDC, families are invited to celebrate Easter Sunday at Rainbow Roost with staff and friends of our centre. This event at the spectacular Rainbow’s Roost Farm will start at 10 a.m. and feature everything from Easter egg hunts to pony rides to bunny bowling. When you’re tired from all the fun, head over to the fire pit and grab a hot dog to roast.
Rainbow’s Roost is a stunning 53-acre property on the North Thompson River just 20 minutes from Downtown Kamloops. Miniature horses Dainty and Bella are the highlight of the petting farm, but you will also see dwarf goats, bunnies, pigs, lambs and silky hens. There’s something for everyone.
Chimera Theatre and The Freudian Slips are pleased to announce a new director, a new troupe, and an all-new season of improvised comedy taking place in Kamloops! The Freudian Slips is the hottest improvised comedy troupe in the desert city and will continue to bring monthly improv shows to Kamloops this spring and summer.
