I normally love spring break. I love the freedom from schedules and I just like to play. Things aren’t quite the same this year, of course, but we’ll make the best of it! We’re looking for family-friendly fun you can enjoy with your kids during spring break, even if some of it might have to be online. The CBE spring break is from March 26 – April 5, 2021, bumping into Easter. (The CSSD break is from April 2 – 11, 2021, and we’ll include whatever fun we find for that week, too.) You never know what spring can hold in Calgary, but whatever it is, we can enjoy the break!
