Winter Youth Field Day Provides Opportunities for Kids to Try Winter Sports

All this snow getting to your family, kids restless, not doing their chores? Phippsburg Sportsmen's Association can help! We can get them outdoors having fun and it will do wonders! Snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, dogsledding, winter tracking and more are on the program for the Phippsburg Sportsmen's Association's Winter Youth Field Day on Saturday, March 1, 2015.

The Field Day is organized in a series of one hour segments that give kids the opportunity to snowshoe and ski along wooded trails, track deer, bobcat and fox in the snow and ride on and perhaps even drive a dogsled. In addition to the outdoor sports activities, educational demonstrations give kids the opportunity to meet a police department search dog, and perhaps even try their skills at hiding from one of these incredible dogs. They will also learn about taking care of themselves outdoors in the winter.

For the snowshoeing and skiing activities loaner equipment will be available or kids may bring their own.

Winter Youth Field Day is held at the Phippsburg Sportsmen's Association's Outdoor Education Center on Route 209, Main Road in Phippsburg. The Field Day begins with registration at 0800 and continues until about 2 p.m. Lunch will be provided and there is no charge for the Day. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
