Outdoor Learning Experiences
SKI EDUCATION PROGRAMS FOR SCHOOL GROUPS
Since 1983, Bohart has offered quality ski education programs to schools designed to introduce students to the life-long activity of Nordic skiing and create an awareness and appreciation for the outdoor environment.
Our programs, which can be adapted for students from the pre-school to high school level, involve students through experiential learning activities that are both age appropriate and consistent with grade-specific curricula.
For the entire class, ski instruction begins with a series of group games that teach and reinforce ski skills by helping students learn balance and movement on cross-country skis. After a short snack break on the snow, students are divided into small groups for a ski tour. Each tour group, led by a Bohart Ski Instructor explores our trails. Instructors capitalize on teachable moments and terrain to refine ski skills and to introduce environmental / outdoor education concepts. Our Programs are active and provide a fun-filled discovery based learning experience for the students.
SCHOOLS MAY SCHEDULE ONE OR MULTIPLE SKI DAYS
We see quantum leaps in student ski skills when your class is scheduled for multiple ski days within the same season. Also, multiple visits to Bohart allow schools the opportunity to choose any combination of our two Ski Education Programs: Nordic Adventure and Adventures in Winter Ecology. Visit the following pages for detailed information about these two programs.
$12 per student for Nordic Adventure Program
$17 per student for Adventures in Winter Ecology (AWE) Program
$8 per student for Ski Rental Package
Teachers and chaperones pay no program fee, and may rent the ski package for a discount of $10 for the day.
Scholarships are available based on financial need. Contact Bohart in advance for arrangements.
