Cross Country Skiing

Time of year: Winter (requires snow)

Half Day Program

While participating in our Cross Country Skiing program, students are introduced to the history of cross country skiing as well as the recreational aspects of the sport.  A snowshoe hike can also take on other themes such as aboriginal education, biodiversity and ecology in our beautiful forest ecosystem!  Our lesson includes a structured and/or experiential approach to learning how to fall, get up again and ski forwards.  A great way to explore our property in winter.

Please note that the OPHEA supervision ratio for grades 7-8 is 1:15 for this activity.
