As a teacher, I believe that it's important to help our children experience the history, traditions, and cultural legacies which make Alberta great. If you want to share Alberta's unique and diverse heritage with your kids - minus the crowds, party atmosphere, and expense of the Stampede - we have some great suggestions for daytrips which will help you and your family learn about the fascinating history of the city and province we call home.
What better way to spend quality time with your family and get in touch with nature than a fresh, invigorating walk in the woods, along a river or a beach! What’s more, family hikes make for fun learning opportunities for kids and parents alike. So try some of these hiking activities with your youngsters.
It’s not too early to start thinking about hiking again for another season. Many trails in Kananaskis come into condition by March or early April, and you’ll find plenty of solitude hiking in the ‘shoulder season’ rather than in the middle of summer. Check out these suggested trails and put some on your list for Spring Break this year!
Canoeing is a classic summer experience that many of us will remember from days at camp as a child. You don’t have to send the kids to camp, though, to get a safe introduction to paddling. Canoeing is a sport that the whole family can enjoy in Kananaskis and Banff this summer with little to no previous experience.
