Weekend Activities

At King’s-Edgehill School we understand the importance of keeping boarding students engaged and energized. To keep things fresh and stimulating, the extracurricular activities available to KES boarding students vary in scope and include events on- and off campus.

Whether it is venturing to Acadia to watch a musical or taking a skating trip on the oval, there is no shortage of things to do on weekends for King’s-Edgehill students. Thanks to our staff chaperones, students have the option to take a weekend shopping trip to Halifax, visit a film festival, watch a Ted Talk or participate in a day trip to historical Peggy’s Cove. For students interested in sports, King’s-Edgehill has a 3-on-3-basketball league that meets every Wednesday evening; and weekend evenings are full of surprises, including Ping-Pong tournaments in the gym and Friday night cooking events in the cafeteria.

Thanks to the KES Shuttle, our students never need to worry about transportation to and from their weekend trips! And for those students wishing to enjoy their weekends on campus, they have the freedom to enjoy the campus gym and pool or participate in a weekday evening intramural league, sledding or hockey on the long pond. Of course, we also encourage some downtime in the student lounge or house common room areas.

Residence life events, such as the Campus Cup, are also an important part of life on campus for students. From decorating gingerbread houses and carving pumpkins, to competing in Sunday Night “Minute to Win It” challenges, and “Taxi Trivia”, there are several events where flat members come together for friendly challenges which are all about having fun and bonding with one another. There is always something to do for KES students! Review our Weekend Programming flyer here
