In previous years, we have celebrated the return of the sun with an action-packed week of outdoor winter fun! This day camp is designed for campers to experience a variety of exciting outdoor and cultural activities in the Yellowknife area. Leaving their smart phones behind, our campers will have an unforgettable week of fresh air, adventure, and exploring the beautiful wilderness around the Yellowknife area and Great Slave Lake. While the focus of the camp is on having fun with friends in a supportive environment, instructors will incorporate winter and northern survival skills into our activities throughout the week.
Highlights of the camp will include:
- Winter survival for kids (quinzee building, lean-to structures and fire-starting – flint and steel)
- Ice-fishing with Shawn Buckley – including a ride in his bombardiers to an ice-fishing net. Shawn will also talk about fish biology and demonstrate filleting + fresh fish fry
- Fun, interpretative nature hikes to show local plants
- Snow-shoeing (we supply the snow-shoes)
Each day of the camp = campers can be dropped off between 8:00-8:30am and picked up between 5:00-5:30pm.
