Planning a kid-friendly vacation? Kamloops is the destination!

Kamloops has so many great opportunities to keep kids busy – from being active to resting and relaxing. Kamloops is a great place for kids to get all their energy out so that once they are tucked into a family-friendly hotel suite at night they are out like a light (leaving valuable time for parents to relax and unwind).


Kamloops with Kids in the Summer

Your kids will thrive in the Kamloops sunshine if you are planning a summertime adventure to our region. Your only problem is going to be how to fit it all in – so do yourself a favour and book one more night in advance so you don’t have to leave anything out.

We suggest you start your summer adventure in Kamloops outdoors.

Spend the morning biking – your kids will love testing their skills at the Kamloops Bike Ranch or take the family cross-country biking on the Pineview Valley Trail Network or in Kenna Cartwright Park. Then in the afternoon grab your spot on the beach. Kamloops has wonderful beaches to soak up some sun, build some castles, skimboard, and toss a frisbee. Riverside Park Beach, Overlander Park Beach, or the Bruker Marina and Beach are the perfect spots to spend the afternoon in the sun.

On the second day of your trip to Kamloops try some more structured activities for your kids. Summertime is the perfect time to visit amazing Kamloops destinations like BC Wildlife Park, Kamloops Heritage Railway, Little Farmers Petting Zoo, or even the Erin Valley Riding Stables.


Things to do with Kids in Kamloops in the Spring

Did someone say playground?! As parents we know that as soon as that sun is shining, and those birds are chirping it is time to get the kids outside and into the park. We also know that a new playground screams adventure to kids. There is something about a slide that is brand new and monkey bars that have never been conquered that immerse a kid in hours of play.

Kamloops has tons of playgrounds and parks to keep the kids entertained. Check out a few local favorites between activities during your stay in Kamloops.

Spring is also an awesome time for families to take in Kamloops’ arts and culture scene. Try an afternoon at the Kamloops Children’s Museum or plan an evening out for a movie or theatre performance.


Winter Fun for Kids in Kamloops

Skiing, boarding, snowshoeing, and skating. Kamloops is a great outdoor winter playground – our winters are typically quite mild with only the occasional cold snap, so you can enjoy all the fresh BC powder. From mid-December through March, Kamloops is blanketed in light, powdery snow where your kids can hit up some of the region’s most fun downhill runs, or join in a game of shinny.

Okay – so outdoor winter adventure can be cool. So, when your crew needs to warm up, but still needs to run around. We have you covered.

Kids and parents love our countless indoor family attractions. From rock climbing to arcades – from sporting events to museums your little ones (and big ones) will have plenty of indoor places to burn off their energy.
