Welcome message from site

Kamloops is centrally located in the BC interior, with easy access to Vancouver, Kelowna and all the stops in between. Kamloops is known as “The Tournament Capital,” as the city offers a wide variety of summer and winter sports. Our city is large enough to offer all the amenities of a larger centre, but small enough to make it easy to get around. There is a world of recreation right at your doorstep, including hiking, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, golfing and swimming. You can also enjoy live theatre or “Music in the Park” during the summer months. Come enjoy with us!
