Kamloops with a population of 85,000 lies at the end of the Coquihalla Highway some 200 km north from Hope.

The city lies in the Thompson River Valley at the confluence of the North and South Thompson Rivers. Established as a fur trading centre in 1812, it served multiple purposes including a main rail centre for the Canadian Pacific Railway from 1886. The city was incorporated in 1893 and home to 1000 people.

The major industrial support for todays community is agriculture, forestry/wood products & mining. It also provides support and infrastructural support to the copper producer in the Highland Valley to the south.

Kamloops, Canada’s Tournament Capital, provides world-class facilities for national and international athletes, while supporting local participation and training programs at every level of competition.  Facilities include the Tournament Capital Center, Pools, Arenas, Fields and Gyms.
