Winter Wilderness Survivors (Grades 2-3)

Can you light a one-match fire? Can you build a shelter from the things you find here in the winter? Test out your ability to survive in the cold, snow-filled mountains. Enjoy an action-packed winter day building a one-match fire at ACES Hallam Lake as a Winter Explorer and discover this winter wonderland firsthand.

This class is for students currently enrolled in grades 2-3.

Registration Required!

What To Bring:

Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, extra change of clothing, sunscreen, warm hat, gloves/mittens, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything. Wear appropriate clothing to play in the snow and sturdy, winter boots!

How To Get There:

Please walk, bike, bus, carpool, or ski to ACES sites whenever possible (yes, you really could cross country ski to ACES when there is enough snow). Parking at all sites is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet!
