KMTA will be providing a series of programs throughout the Heritage Area. We will do a variety of weather-dependent indoor and outdoor activities which could include:
- Snow bowling
- Snölykta building
- Scavenger hunts, outdoor explorations
- Marshmallow races
- Birch bark crafts and a maybe even a few surprises!
- All programs will end with cookie decorating and lighting the snölykta once the sun goes down.
Who: Winter Break Programs are open to all K-12 students who live in KMTA communities. Community members younger than 6 are welcome to participate with a parent chaperone!
Cost: Winter Break programs are free. If you’re able, please consider making a donation to KMTA’s Education Programs to help us expand these opportunities for more kids throughout the Heritage Area.
