Snowshoeing
?Nordic Center
?10AM-1PM
Please RSVP by email!

Our next Explorer Day is the annual snowshoeing trip at the Nordic Center! Our wonderful guest leader, Rick Gee, will take us out on the trails to learn about trees, snow safety, orienteering and all sorts of other things. Some years we have even seen lynx tracks! Please bring a lunch, water, appropriate snow gear, and your camera.

**Use of the trails by our club is by donation. This year each family is responsible for making their own donation.**

Snowshoes can be rented from Sports Rent in Kelowna for a very affordable price, and they have lots of kids’ sizes. There are other locations in Kelowna to rent from as well. Bring a friend or two! Guest passes are available to print from our club website and you can bring as many as you want. www.ynckelowna.weebly.com

Please be at the Nordic Center for a 10AM start time. We cannot ensure that those who are tardy will be able to join us on the adventure but you can still use the trails and have your own!

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
