Snowlandia: a winter week for young women from 100.00
Snowlandia is designed for young women ages 10 -11 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 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, building a small warming fire, preventative 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!
To recap, the snowlandia winter week experience features:
- Nature hikes
- Nordic skiing (classic)
- Quinzhee building
- First Aid training
- Team building challenges
- Contemplative time in nature
Cost: The program cost of $265.00 ($66.00/day) includes learning materials, access to the specialized outdoor gear we will be using and mentorship from qualified outdoor educators. Participants must provide their own lunch, snacks and warm clothing.
Accessibility Cost: $100.00 ($25.00/day) Our partner organization, SaskOutdoors will subsidize the cost of three female 10 & 11 year old participants who identify as Indigenous, newcomers to Canada, or living in low income families. The goal of these three subsidized spots is to increase the accessibility of the program. Please note, SaskOutdoors would like participants making use of this support to follow up with a letter sharing about their Snowlandia experience. Dates: Tues., February 19th - Fri., February 22nd.
Program Requirements: Participants need to have warm winter clothes such as snowpants, jacket, winter boots and long underwear/base layers 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).
Registered participants will receive a detailed information package in late January/early February.
