Don’t let your kiddos (aged 6 -14) get bored during Winter Break. Join us at NorthWoods for outdoor exploration by snowshoe and ski, and indoor arts and crafts. We’ll sample culture in the North, from ice fishing to shared stories and games. We’ll look for signs of winter wildlife, and learn about the adaptations that help these animals thrive, not just survive, Vermont’s long winters. Here at NorthWoods, our staff is passionate about sharing our love for snow. Come join us! Gear and homemade lunch included. Scholarships available.
Location: NorthWoods Stewardship Center, 154 Leadership Drive East Charleston, VT
