Fitness Field Trip: Ski and Snowboard Day at Camp Fortune

February 13th, 2015

Another month of snow and ice also means another fitness field trip centred around winter sports for Youville Centre’s young moms! Recently our students had the opportunity to visit Camp Fortune to ski and snowboard, spent time outside, and enjoy a fun and active field trip.

The beautiful, sunny day began with a lesson in either skiing or snowboarding. Students were grouped according to their skill level and experience. For most of our young moms, this was their first time skiing or snowboarding.

After a morning of lessons, everyone enjoyed a delicious lunch, and then returned to the slopes for the afternoon. At this point in the day, students could try different ski runs to suit their comfort level, and take time to practice their new skills.

It was a day of adventure, learning new skills, conquering fears, and having fun together. Even the Principal of M.F. McHugh Education Centre, Youville’s education partner, joined the students for a few ski runs!

Thank you to everyone who donated winter gear to help make this trip possible.
