MEDICINE HAT, AB — For many students, the Easter break is the time to kick up their feet and relax.

But for some young kids, the Easter break means fun at Medicine Hat College.

The Rattlers are hosting its annual Easter break camps through the week, giving dozens of students a chance to learn a variety of sports.

The goal is to keep young kids active while away from school. In addition to activities in the gym, the college also took the kids to Panorama Lanes and Dunmore Dugout.

Shae Fedorak with the Rattlers says the age is perfect to get kids living an active lifestyle.

“One of the things I’ve noticed is that a lot of the kids, at home, just play video games all day,” she said. “What we embrace here is getting them active, getting them to know the sports, because even working out in classrooms, lots of kids don’t know sports....here all the leaders are sports trained and know all the sports, and we want to give them a variety of sports knowledge, so that they get an interest in all sports.”

Fedorak says the classes have grown over the years, and says it’s great to see parents introduce their kids to sports.
