Winter Adventure Weekend

Dates: February 26-28, 2016       Ages 10-18     Cost: $150.00 + HST

Our coolest season at Ross Creek offers clean air, the dazzling splendour of light and snow, and a new way to experience nature. If you’ve come before, you’ll get to the next level, AND you can use it towards Duke of Edinburgh award qualification!

With the guidance and support of our experienced instructor, Eric Kershaw, you will learn the art of adventure at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts in this weekend winter workshop. Come outdoors into the woods and fields of Ross Creek and learn basic winter survival skills focusing on fire-making, shelter-building and winter navigation. Build confidence and skills in the outdoors, while making great new friends, and come home with incredible memories. The weekend will be challenging and a whole lot of fun. Campers will stay in shelters, and learn all the skills related to basic winter survival and outdoor enjoyment of this gorgeous season at Ross Creek. All participants will get their own knife at the end of the program. Scroll down to the end of the list for the registration form and book early!
