Winter Scouts Intensive

Our program for cold weather months (Jan & Feb) is back – Winter Scouts Intensive!!

The Winter Scouts Intensive program will meet on Thursdays for 8 weeks, starting January 5 and ending February 23.  This is a multi-age program for Mountain Mapaches and older.  Ask Jen about special instructor permission if you have a hardcore younger ruffian. :-)  With the multi-ages, younger kids can be mentored and older kids will be allowed substantial freedom.

We will winter track, make an igloo if there is enough snow, and generally learn how to thrive and enjoy the winter.  We will go out in temperatures down to 13 degrees; this is based on school insurance.  All participants must know how to dress for the cold weather.

Based on student and parent input, last year we transitioned to a seasonal schedule.  It was a great success, so continuing again this year.  This is an opportunity for our kids of different ages who are enthusiastic and pretty hardcore about winter mountain weather to have an incredible experience together.  Therefore, we are asking only for a donation of your choice to enroll your child.

Students who are not excited about being outside in the cold and snow, and who are not able to consistently pack their packs and take responsibility for themselves, should NOT sign up for this class.  Spring season will resume as normal the week of February 27.  If you would like Jen’s input about whether your child should participate, please feel free to contact her directly.
