OPG schedules March break fun for kids Print


March break is here for Clarington parents and students, and for some that means a trip to a sunnier destination. However, the reality is that many of us don't pack up the family and jump on a flight south during the week, which means keeping the kids busy locally is essential.

Ontario Power Generation's  Darlington Nuclear March Break Madness program, March 12 -16, 2012, gives Clarington parents access to a variety of events designed to inform and entertain their children during the week. The following events are planned:

Monday March 12

10 am to 2 pm
Signs of Spring - Darlington Waterfront Trail - Explore the trail with Nature Trails Unlimited and join Friends of Second Marsh for nature activities, go for a horse-drawn wagon ride and warm up with a hot drink and treats around the campfire.

Tuesday March 13

9:30 am to 1:30 pm
Community Skate
South Courtice Arena, 1595 Prestonvale Road, Courtice
