Guide to March Break 2012

March BreakIn case your kids haven’t reminded you, March Break is but a few days away. Kids throughout the Limestone District School Board are presently sitting in class watching the clock, and counting down to a week where they’ll be free from finger painting and standardized testing. If you’re like many of the parents I’ve spoken with, you may not have had time to figure out what sort of programs are out there to help keep kids entertained. Lucky for you, Kingstonist has collected and combined a vast amount of information regarding local kid-friendly camps and activities, which are taking place next week. Whether you’re taking time off to be junior’s chauffeur, or looking to add a few things to your kid’s daily schedule, we hope you’ll enjoy our guide to what’s going on in Kingston during the March Break.

While we made every effort to ensure that our guide is comprehensive, we likely missed a few things going on in the community. Of course, other facilities such as the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes and our very own events calendar are also helpful if you need further suggestions.

Please drop us a line and let us know what you’ve got planned for the March Break.

Thanks to Ben+Sam for the photo associated with today’s guide.
