Fort McMurray is our Home
Each year we host and work events that Fort McMurray has come to expect from us.
10 years ago we started the Free Family Skate. On select dates, all winter long, you can go to the Suncor Community Leisure Centre and expect to see a friendly King's Kids staff person or volunteer there to whisk you through your afternoon. The skate is sponsored by many local businesses, making it possible for us to bring free hot chocolate, coffee, candy and prizes to you, the great people of Fort McMurray.
The first skate of 2019 will be on Nov 3rd and we hope to see you there!
2019/20 Skate Dates:
Nov 3, 10, 24
Dec 1, 8
Jan 5, 12
Feb 2, 9, 16
On October 5th we held our first Harvest Festival in partnership with Heritage Village. There was pumpkin carving, a small hay maze for the kids, lawn games, a life size cow milking display, face painting, fire pit, and hot chocolate and pumpkin pie. The event was attended by over 500 people even though it was cold and a bit rainy. Can't wait for next year!
We anticipate the continuation of the LionHeart Performing Arts Camps in January. These camps are held in Fort McMurray, Fort Chipewyan, Janvier & Conklin in January, April and longer summer camps in July. In conjunction with The District Recording Studio and many hard working volunteers, you won't want to miss it.
