Spring Break Fun in Surrey, Delta & White Rock

  1. Kick off spring break with Family Sunday at the Surrey Art Gallery on March 12. Check out the exhibitions, get messy with clay, paint, paper and more. Enjoy a show by magician Travis Bernhardt, combining tricks, storytelling, and comedy.
  2. Explore the breathtaking Salish Sea with White Rock Sea Tours. Get up close with the marine mammals that call the west coast home.
  3. Spend a rainy afternoon at the Surrey Museum with Under Construction with construction themed crafts, a dig site, scavenger hunt and building activities. Drop in Tuesday to Friday.
  4. Learn the ropes at the world class Coastal Climbing Centre. With both drop in opportunities and spring break camps, this is a perfect introduction to climbing for all the monkeys out there.
  5. Take a stroll down the White Rock Pier & Promenade. Grab a hot chocolate, walk the pier and promenade, dig in the sand, chase crabs under the pier and spot seals in the harbor.

  7. Take a mini-nature retreat in Burns Bog, the largest undeveloped urban landmass in North America. The sounds of traffic fade within minutes of wandering into this peaty oasis.

  9. Tour the O.W.L. Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society that specializes in birds of prey such as eagles, falcons, hawks and owls. To learn more about these magnificent raptors, join a weekend tour.
