Yellow Lake on Hwy 3a.
Meet at the parking lot at the Twin Lakes/Penticton end.
Ice Safety with possibly a chance to ice fish. Bring a lunch for afterwards if it is not too cold out.Dress in layers for the cold. Wear thick winter boots to keep feet warm. Avoid cotton clothing as it gets wet and cold fast.
I’m going to brave up and get in the water, if I can break some ice. Show what to do if you end up through the ice. If ice is too thick then I will demo while on top of the ice. Let the kids throw my throw bags.
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.
