Indoor attractions and outdoor thrills offer family fun and adventures with new friends. A variety of venues and facilities, a strong athletic culture, and an enthusiastic volunteer base, it’s no wonder Kamloops is Canada’s Tournament Capital. Organized athletics for a myriad of sports offer training and development for youngsters and elite athletes alike.
Kamloops has a vibrant horseback riding community. From cattle country to scenic forest trails, group rides, and ranch stays, this is the place to get back to nature. Kids keep cool in neighbourhood water parks, visit the nearly 200 animals at the BC Wildlife Park, skate the world’s first longboard park, muck up with paintball, zipline past canyon walls, blaze the trails in Sun Peaks’ Bike Park, or take a lunch and the dog for a swim at one of the city’s dog-friendly public beaches.
