Take Advantage of Your March Break Canada!


It’s almost that time of year again when the kids get to take a week off school to enjoy the winter and pack in some exciting activities. A lot of people take this opportunity to go down South for the week, but if you’re like me you need some ideas closer to home that wont break the bank.

That being said there are a lot of activities going on in most communities that can get your family active and out of the house. Here are some of the activities I found:

1. YMCA March Break Day Camps-check your local YMCA because most of them offer day camps throughout the march break that have fun activities for kids. It’s getting them active and it’s a chance to meet new people.

2. Local Libraries offer a ton of activities for kids all year round and even more activities during the March Break. A lot of the activities provided by your local library are free and are worth checking out!

3. Check your local Community Center for events during the break. Most offer more public swimming, skating or drop in times for team sports. It’s a great way to stay active this March break.

4. Volunteer in your community. It’s a rewarding experience to help someone out and there are tons of places you can volunteer your time with your family this March Break.

For more great things to do with your family this March Break check your city’s local website.
If you have any additional ideas please  share them so everyone can take advantage of their March Break.

    Wait ’til next year….spring break increases from 1 week to 2 weeks, where I am. Already not a fan of that!!! I don’t envy anyone who has to pay for daycare, it makes us struggling to get by even more complicated.

    Wait, march break was 2 weeks when I was in high school, then it went to one. Now it’s going back to two?!? That’s crazy.

    where is it becoming two weeks???

  5. 7mountains says:

    I am in Chilliwack, BC. They are starting the 2 week thing next year, 2011. It is already in effect in Abottsford and I believe in Langley too. I am quite certain that there are other areas that practise the 2 week break.

    Where I am in Ontario March break for the little kids isn’t until the week of the 15th. Only one week here.

  7. ryry says:

    If they extend the leave to two weeks won’t they have to make up the instructional time at a latter date? In Ontraio we have to have 190 instructional days in a school year. March break in Simcoe County – the board I am in – is only one week and no news of two weeks.

  8. 7mountains says:

    Implementing a 2 week spring break looks like this in BC: the school board increases each school day by 7 or 8 minutes and THAT makes up for the extra week in the spring.

  9. You may have not intended to do so, but I think you might have managed to express the state of mind that a lot of individuals are in. The sense of wanting to support, but not knowing how or wherever, is a thing a lot of us are going through.

  10. Aw, this was a really great post. In theory I’d prefer to write like this also – taking time and genuine energy to generate a fantastic post… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never ever appear to get a thing carried out.

  11. A person essentially help to make significantly posts I might state.
    That is the first time I frequented your web page and thus far?
    I surprised with the analysis you made to
    make this actual put up amazing. Excellent activity!
