Snowlandia: a winter week for young women


Wildernook

We’re back with Snowlandia 2019!

Leap on snowshoes, search for life under the snow, develop leadership skills and make outdoorsy friends. SaskOutdoors and Wildernook are teaming up again to offer winter experiences in a fresh way. 

Snowlandia is designed for young women ages 10 & 11  who crave more outdoor time exploring and connecting with nature.  Snowlandia is an exciting opportunity for young women to challenge themselves outdoors during the winter break.

The Experience:   Each day will feature a different winter adventure in Holiday Park's Naturalized space and surrounding area (ski trails, South Saskatchewan Riverbank).  The morning and afternoon learning experiences will focus on practical outdoor skills such as staying warm and dry, first aid, skiing and snowshoeing. Although we will begin and end each day bundled up outdoors, participants can expect to spend a couple of cozy low-key, down-time hours indoors around noon eating, reading, and drying out our mitts! 

Times: We will meet each morning between 8:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. , enjoy cozy indoor time together between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and wrap up between 4:00p.m - 4:30 p.m. each day. Families are welcome to contact jana@wildernook.com if they need to set up alternate pick-up or drop off arrangements.

Cost: The program cost of $260.00 ($65.00/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 15 minutes and walk for 60 minutes).  

Registration: Check back for registration information soon.

Registered participants will receive a detailed information package at the beginning of September.

This program is lead by experienced female outdoor education teachers who are experts in their fields.
