Getting Lost in the Woods

This will be a combined club event with Shuswap 4H club so that hopefully we can get at least 15-20 kids??!!

Salmon Arm Search and Rescue are going to lead a fun “Getting lost in the woods” activity, what to do and how to do it. They will also teach us a bit about avalanches and using an avalanche beacon.
Please come prepared with winter clothing as will probably tromp through some deep snow, etc.
 Location:  Klahani Park. 6391 10 Avenue Southeast Salmon Arm, BC V1E 4N2

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.
