Kids, I Got This: March Break & Kelowna Hotel Deals

February 24, 2015

As February comes to an end, you're probably going to catch yourself (yet again) saying, 'Honey, what are we going to do with the kids for March break?' And instead of dealing with frenzied airport getaways or imposing on grandma, why not take advantage of Kelowna hotel deals and a full itinerary of activities for every kind of kid?

When you discover the exciting and inexpensive array of March break activities on offer as well as the Kelowna hotel deals to give your troupe a fun and budget-friendly place to stay, you're apt to say, "Honey, we're not in Creston anymore."

From WHL hockey games and family musicals to soccer camps and eco-art events, here is a list of just some of the events to please every little traveller under your crossover's roof.


The Diva

If one of your offspring is destined for the stage, or you've got a preteen girl who could use a boost of body image confidence, check out Freckleface Strawberry, The Musical.

Based on the story written by freckled and redheaded actress Julianne Moore, Freckleface helps youngsters feel comfortable in their own skin. Performances run March 5-8 at the Kelowna Actors Studio.

If there's a future Sidney Crosby at your dinner table, or kids who just love watching hockey and tomorrow's NHL stars, why not score on Kelowna hotel deals and treat them to a WHL game this spring break?

The Kelowna Rockets face their opponents in a handful of regular season games on home ice at Prospera Place throughout March, so you're sure to find a game during your school district's March break. Watch the Rockets take on the Victoria Royals March 11, the Kamloops Blazers March 14, and the Seattle Thunderbirds March 18. Puck always drops at 7:05 p.m.



The Boarder or the Ski Bunny

The Big White Kelowna Cup

If there's a skier or boarder in your group and you're going to be in Kelowna over March break, you won't want to miss the champagne powder or family-friendly activities of Big White Mountain Resort.

This year, Big White is resurrecting the Big White Kelowna Cup, a race for all ages with an '80's twist. The race kicks off March 7 at 10 a.m. with categories for families,  kids under 10 and youth aged 10-14, as well as adults. As a throwback to the bright and beloved '80s, racers can win prizes for donning costumes from the decade of Madonna. As a twist, racers try to guess the time for their second run and see who comes closest. Cost is just $10/entry or $20/family.



The Mini Monet

Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan

Do you wake up to find toilet paper rolls turned into Leaning Towers of Pisas, or body care baskets becoming shells for paper mache turtles? If one of your kids is a budding eco-artist, they'll love Eco-Art at the EECO—an all-ages recycled and all-natural materials art-making session!

Eco-Art runs every Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan. That's located in Mission Creek Regional Park (just a few blocks south of our pet friendly Kelowna hotel). No need to register.



The Ball Hog

Goal net - the SFU Spring Break Children's Soccer Camp

If soccer is your son or daughter's game, be sure to register for the SFU Spring Break Children's Soccer Camp, being held March 16-20 at the Capital News Centre.

Choose from a morning or afternoon camp, open to boys and girls aged five to 11. Throughout the camp, kids will have a chance to build their soccer skills from some of the best players in BC. To register, contact the Parkinson Rec. Centre at 250-469-8800 or visit


Now that you've found fun and encouraging March break activities for your little individuals, check out the Kelowna hotel deals and amenities offered by BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites, offering free hot buffet breakfast, mineral pool, hot tubs, two on-site restaurants and more.
