Even for the first day, it was still filled to the brim with travel and activities.  Participants have come to Kamloops from all over BC, including Vancouver Island, the lower mainland, Northern BC and many other locations. Participants started to arrive at 1 and the last group came at 8:30. Once the students arrived they checked in and then went to their rooms, where the met their new roommate.

Later the students went downstairs where they met the other delegates and learned the art of pin trading.


Afterwards was a wonderful pizza dinner hosted by Thompson Rivers University.


The students were then split into their two groups and either went on a tour of the University or were given a lesson on the Secwepemc First Nation by one of the bands councilors.

The students then joined together and were lead in team games by the Alumni. These games included the knot game, Canadian Who AM I and Evolution. They had a lot of fun.


It was snack time before going to bed then lights out. The sun sets on the first day of the British Columbia Provincial Heritage Fair 2014.
