Winter Survival and Shelter Building
Our theme this month is Winter Survival. What would you do if you were an animal in the snow? Where would you hide? Where would you find food? What is most important to survive?  Come build shelters, learn how to not get lost, make fire and play games. Our Nature Mentor this month is Malin Christensson. Malin runs The Forest Path, an all-outdoor nature connection program for kids age 3-12. Learn more about her program offerings here: https://theforestpath.ca/

Location to be confirmed but we’re thinking of Morning Mountain in Blewett. There is also a skating rink here so bring your skates for some fun after our Explorer Day activity is finished! You can check this website for a location map and driving directions https://westkootenayhiking.ca/morning-mountain-bike-trails/

Any questions let us know. The registration form will be sent out later. As usual, this event is free for club members and anyone who has never been to an Explorer Day event before.

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.
