Optimist Club of Saskatoon  is proud to partner with PotashCorp Wintershines to bring you Winter Camp In The City. Optimist Clubs' mandate “to bring out the best in kids” and their new project the Optimist Hill Campaign ( ) will also help to fulfill this mandate.

Winter Camp in the City is a one-day outdoor experience for school aged children in grades 6-8. The program runds daily from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The program offers six outdoor and indoor activities. This year’s activities at Winter Camp in the City are Maple Taffy Making, Kick Sledding, Metis Voyageur Games, Shinny and more! 
Maple Taffy Making: Students will learn how to prepare and cool maple taffy.

Kick Sledding: A kicksled is a small sled with a chair mounted on top of two flexible runners. It is propelled by someone standing behind the chair and kicking it forward. Students will get to try kicksledding on a small obstacle course.

Voyaguer Games Students will learn how to put on snowshoes correctly, and Wanuskewin will be leading student in various games
