March Break (March 13th to 17th) is a great time for families to get out and enjoy activities and events together!
To help plan your March Break week we’ve compiled some fabulous ideas for you and the kids.
An annual favourite is a stop at Bronte Creek Provincial Park. Fresh Ontario maple syrup begins flowing the first Saturday in March and the park is open to the public the week of March Break from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm, plus every weekend in March. Enjoy a guided tour of Maple Lane, where 1890’s costumed interpreters demonstrate how to tap maple trees, make maple syrup and maple sugar. Hop on a wagon for a quick ride to a heated pancake house where you’ll enjoy delicious pancakes, visit the play barn and stop by the gift shoppe on your way out to purchase some maple products and souvenirs.
There are many outdoor and indoor skating rinks in the area, toboggan hills (fingers crossed we have enough snow), skiing and snowboarding at Glen Eden and aquatic programs at Centennial Pool (a great way to keep the kids active and having fun while learning a valuable life skill!). For Disney fans, Beauty and the Beast opens in theatres on March 17th.
There are many exciting week long camps to choose from this year to keep your kids engaged and entertained! 4 Cats Art Studio is a hive of creativity, Addison Music Learning Centre (a performance for parents at the end of the week), Aspire Climbing (Friday finale on the exciting Ninja Warrior course), Bricks 4 Kidz (camp themes are Minecraft, Amusement Park, Space Adventures and Inventions), Canadian School of Young Scholars (STEM curriculum), Canlan Ice Hockey Camp and Hockey Camps at River Oaks Community Centre, Futures Gymnastics, Oakville Academy for the Arts’, Rising Sun Martial Arts, March Break Blast (With Disabilities) 5 to 12 years (enjoy special guests, swimming, crafts and more) – there is something for everyone! The Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts offers Lights Camera Action Educate Camp where children ages 9 to 12 will use cameras, tripods and Macbooks to learn about the magic of movie making while filming live on location!
The whole family will enjoy a trip to the CN Tower, Ripleys Aquarium of Canada, Royal Ontario Museum, Ontario Science Centre, Art Gallery of Ontario, Black Creek Pioneer Village, Casa Loma, Toronto Zoo or Great Wolf Lodge.
