Sea2Sky Summer Camp Guide
Keep your sanity and the kids entertained this summer by signing them up for one of our great local camps! Opportunities abound with camps and programs focusing on everything from soccer to reading clubs. Glance through our guide to find the best fit for you and your children. And of course don't miss out on the 30th annual Whistler Children's Festival and Vibe Tribe Summer show. See you out there!
On July 13 and 14, 2013, the Whistler Children's Festival turns a whopping 30, and to celebrate its almost grown-up status it is moving to the heart of town at Whistler Olympic Plaza in Whistler Village. The two-day festival is the must-do family event of the summer, with workshops, activities, animation and roving characters, and a main stage that features musical and performing acts by award-winning entertainers, such as Ache Brasil, the Vancouver Circus School, and Major Conrad Flapps. Favourite workshops like making dream catchers, carving soap stone, and learning circus moves will still be available, along with new ones like making hand felt pals, circus hats, and your own sidewalk chalk. Kids from all ages are welcome. Register early for workshops online at artswhistler.com. Main entry to the festival by donation.
