Lapland Lake Kids' Clubs, Reindeer Rally & More!
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!
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.
NEW THIS SEASON!
LAPLAND LAKE'S AMAZING REINDEER RALLY!
- 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!
