The winter discovery snowshoe program is designed to introduce students to a winter environment. This is achieved by incorporating a major educational portion to the discovery tour, where students learn about what is needed to go on a winter hike, and also some extra information on the environment they are surrounded by. The program is broken up by games to ensure that we keep the energy high and that kids have fun. Overall we want the kids to have a positive experience, this might mean that the ratio of information to games might be shifted depending on the group.
- Safe travel & preparedness (The 10 Essentials)
- Animal adaptions for the winter environment
