Winter activities on the menu for Edmonton kids

December 5, 2016 by  

A winter day camp has been planned for Edmonton that will give children from across the city an opportunity to learn more about the area’s past while having fun in the snow.

The four-day long schedule features an assortment of activities, ranging from snow showing to cooking bannock, hot able cider and other treats over a wood stove, snowman building, toy making, games and much more. Participants will learn about what winter was like for pioneer children, and there will also be modern day fun included in the activities as well. A print shop will be able to use the lamination process to protect any of the printed materials it creates for an outdoor-based activity such as this.

The day camp, which will be held in Fort Edmonton, is suitable for children from ages six to ten. Each child will need to bring his or her own packed lunch, as there are no facilities for microwaving or otherwise reheating food.

The camp will take place from January 3rd until January 6th, running from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm each day. A half hour of supervised free play will take place both before and at the end of each day’s scheduled activities. The cost for each child is $228.52 plus tax, and an opportunity to register can be found on the Fort Edmonton website.
