As parents everywhere will readily admit, Summer is really for the kids. With that in mind, there might not be a better place for kids to be than Fernie for the week of August 17-23.  Check out what's going on:

Operation: Art! - Kids Art Days @ The Arts Station

August 20 from 9:30am - 11:30am
If you're up for a slightly more low-key children's event, then this is just what you're after. Taking place on Wednesdays throughout the summer, Operation: Art! gives children the opportunity to learn about art and create a work of art themselves! Drop-ins welcome. Call The Arts Station for more info at 250-423-4842.

Whether you're away from them for a few hours or a few days, you certainly deserve some away from those precious little bundles of joy (most of the time) that we call children. With the children away, now would be the perfect time to enjoy some alone time at the Fernie Stanford Resort's beautiful indoor pool or enjoy a meal at our licensed restaurant. We look forward to having you soon!
