SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol Day CampDate: Sat Feb 09, 2019
SheJumps Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol, a day camp where girls learn mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women of the ski patrol community and SheJumps volunteers. Throughout the day, participants are taught a range of outdoor skills that are utilized by ski patrollers to keep the mountain safe. Topics included first aid, avalanche control, snow science, weather stations, toboggans, avalanche rescue techniques, avalanche dogs and much more. There is also plenty of snack breaks, high fives and unicorns delivering hot cocoa!
Our goal with SheJumps Wild Skills is to see girls learning, having fun and connecting in an encouraging environment with amazing instruction and support from female mentors. We want Wild Skills to be an experience they will remember, one that will spark a lifetime of passion for the outdoors and will remind them that they are capable of anything. Giving participants, young and old, the opportunity to learn skills in a fun yet challenging setting develops perseverance and fosters confidence.
