Event description

Description


Trailblazers uses Outdoor Education and Recreation to develop leadership skills and an environmental awareness in our young people. We use a variety of activities, like shelter building, fire starting, animal tracking and more, to keep youth engaged with the outdoors while being physically active and developing important skills.

Trailblazers begins immediately after school beside the gymnasium at Salem Elementary School on Mondays to Thursdays until 4:30pm, depending on the group you register for. Students must be picked up behind Salem Elementary promptly at 4:30pm.

The program will be run outside, regardless of the weather (with extreme exceptions), so we are asking all children to dress for the weather. Don’t forget your hats and mittens. Cold hands and heads are an ongoing issue. The kids will get wet and dirty.

Marshview Trailblazers participants will act as Junior Leaders for the grades K-2 program. Trailblazers begins immediately after school on Mondays OR Wednesdays (only pick one day). Your child will be responsible for walking to the Salem School Field to join the program. This is a great opportunity for your child to gain valuable leadership skills and experience.

Here's what you need to know about each age group:

18 children in the k-2 program (Mondays and Wednesdays)

20 in Grade 3 (Tuesdays)

20 in Grade 4 (Thursdays)

6 from Marshview ((Mondays and Wednesdays)

Register early to avoid disappointment. Only select one day for your child.

Register between January 10 & 25, 2020.

There is No Cost for this program and healthy snacks will be provided.

Special Note to Parents and Caregivers

  • The program operates from January 29 – April 1, 2020
