February Vacation Camp 2017 will be held February 20–24. Choose five consecutive half-days (9am–noon) or full days (9am–4pm). Children ages 6 to 14 years of all ability levels learn and improve their skills. During winter school vacation, children just starting out or who have been on the hill for years have opportunities to improve their skills, develop friendships, appreciate the outdoors, and, most of all, have a whole lot of fun! Early registration is encouraged, as spaces are limited. Whaleback asks for registration by January 15th. For more information, go to whaleback.com/vacation-camps/.
For children ages 3–5 years, Whaleback offers the Beluga Whales PreK Ski Program, a fun and playful introduction to skiing. This 5-week program focuses on skill development and encourages a lifelong passion for the outdoors and skiing in an attentive and nurturing learning environment with a 1:4 coach-to-child ratio. Sessions have started. For more information, visit whaleback.com/beluga-whales-prek/.
