  • 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!
