RECREATION DAY

  • This is a day for loosely organized outings or events. There are no sessions scheduled this day—if you need to leave town Wednesday night or Thursday morning, that's fine. But if you can hang around another day, Vancouver has a lot of fun things to offer. (We'll update with some ideas for possible events.)
  • Details will be posted on this page!
