Cross Country Skiing for Kids | Lessons for Ages 5-11

Adirondack Vacation Center > Adirondack Cross Country Skiing > Cross Country Skiing Lessons > Kids' Club

 Lapland Lake Kids' Clubs, Reindeer Rally & More!


Our popular Kids' Clubs offer a full hour
of instruction specifically geared to children from age 5 - 11. Children learn differently from adults, are generally fearless (they have less far to fall!), and love to play games. We make sure they have fun while learning how to cross country ski - a lifelong, healthy sport!

Under the supervision of Terry Ross or Pat Ferri, Lapland Lake's kid-loving, PSIA certified instructors, children play exciting group ski games on snow in our whimsical children's ski area. Focus will be on striding, classic technique, but Terry and Pat will also address skate technique for those who express an interest. Kids' Clubs are followed by a warming hot chocolate break!

Kids' Clubs meet twice daily on weekends and holidays at 11:15am and 1pm and run concurrently with adult Stride & Glide Level 1 Beginner Lessons so everyone in the family can learn to ski simultaneously! $20 per child. Ski-Like-A-Finn Lesson Package: $35 - includes full-day facility use pass, ski rental package and hour-long group lesson.


From 2:15 - 3:30pm every weekend and holiday, Pat and Terry will follow the 1pm Kids' Club with kids' fun and games on snow, the Reindeer Rally! Under Pat and Terry's supervision, kids ages 5 - 11 will play a host of on-ski games including Toilet Bowl Tag, Limbo, Spider (flag tag), Soccer on Snow, Relay Slalom, Caterpillar Relay, Sharks & Minnows, Scavenger Hunt and Elephant Hunt among others! Rides on our Napa Kiikku ice sled ride may also be included.

Parents may join in or not as they wish. Those with children enrolled in the 1 - 2pm Kids' Club and 2:15 - 3:30pm Reindeer Rally may opt for more than two hours of adult ski time (aka Parent Ski Escape) leaving their children in the care of our talented instructor(s). Please note: We do ask that parents who are enrolling their children in both afternoon programs to return at 2pm to check in with Terry and their child or children before the Reindeer Rally fun on skis begins.

Cost for the hour and fifteen minute Reindeer Rally is $15. This program is sure to be so popular with all our younger skiers that parents may want to consider purchase of a $60 Reindeer Pass. By just the fourth session, your kids will enjoy Pat and Terry's fun and games FREE for the balance of the season! 


Ski rental equipment may be exchanged one-time per day for either snowshoes, a tube, ice-skates or a kick sled at no additional cost (highest rental rate prevails). By taking advantage of this offer, you may enjoy two activities for the price of one!

In addition to our Kids' Club lessons, private 30-minute lessons are available most days for children from age 3. Advance reservations are required.
