Snowlandia: a winter week for young women
Leap on snowshoes, search for life under the snow, develop leadership skills and make outdoorsy friends. SaskOutdoors and Wildernook are teaming up to offer winter experiences in a fresh way.
Snowlandia is designed for young women ages 10 -12 who would rather be outside exploring and building forts. It is an exciting opportunity for young women to be active outdoors during the winter break.
The Experience: Each day will feature a different winter adventure in the Saskatoon area. We will also focus on practical outdoor skills such as staying dry, first aid and winter travel.
Dates: Tues., February 20th - Fri., February 23rd.
Times: We will meet each morning at 8:30 a.m., enjoy lunch together at 12:00 p.m. and wrap up between 4:00p.m - 4:30 p.m. each day.
Location: Families can expect learning activities for each day to be based at one of Saskatoon's parks (e.g. Lakewood Park, Gabriel Dumont Park, Holiday Park).
Cost: The program cost of $240.00 ($60.00/day) includes learning materials and any gear rental. Participants must provide their own lunch.
Requirements: Participants need to have warm snowpants, jacket, winter boots and a backpack to be comfortable outdoors. This is an active program and participants should be in good physical condition to enjoy themselves (e.g. able to comfortably run for 20 minutes and walk for 60 minutes).
Registration: There is limited space available, so register soon at www.saskoutdoors.org. Registration deadline is Monday, February 12th.
Registered participants will receive a detailed information package at the beginning of February.
