Events and activities

What can you do in a small city like Kamloops? Lots!

LEAP is a great way for international students to meet Canadian students and other foreign students from other countries. This program organizes trips and events within the Kamloops area at a very reasonably low price. LEAP events are a great way to meet new people, travel to new cities in an organized safe and affordable way.

There are also dozens of student clubs active on campus, ranging from American Sign Language to Eco Club to Toastmasters, that are always looking for new members.

For information about other things to do in Kamloops and area, from skiing Sun Peaks to enjoying any of the 39 magnificant waterfalls in Wells Gray Park, Tourism Kamloops is a fabulous reference.
