Calgary Activities for Children During the Holiday Break

Christmas morning aside, your kids are going to need something to do over the holidays. Here are a few options to prevent them from coming down with a serious case of cabin fever.

Ski or Snowboard Lessons

You don’t have to drive all the way out to the mountains to learn to ski or snowboard. Like generations of Calgary kids, yours can learn to turn on the slopes at WinSport Canada Olympic Park. WinSport offers 90-minute group lessons for all ages and abilities between Dec. 27 and 30. You can rent all the necessary gear on site, including alpine sport helmets.


Gymnastics Camp

The Calgary Gymnastics Centre (CGC) is offering a variety of morning, afternoon and full-day camps over the holiday break. In addition to practicing gymnastics skills under the direction of CGC coaches, campers will make crafts and enjoy snack time.


City of Calgary Recreation Camps

Games, sports, arts, crafts, outdoor time, swimming: City of Calgary Recreation is offering Rec Adventures day camps for kids from the ages of five to 12 during the break. Two- and three-day camps are running between Dec. 23 and 31 at either Southland Leisure Centre or Village Square Leisure Centre.


Pool Day

And not just any pool: the colossal Brookfield Residential YMCA at Seton is open for most of the break, including on Dec. 26, Dec. 31 and, most importantly, Jan. 1, 2020.
