Youth activity: Mountain Workshop - Hands On Children's Museum

Snowshoeing - Hands On Children's Museum

Volunteer to show kids and families at the Hands on Childrens Museum the basics of snowshoeing!

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)

We will have two shifts each day with 3-4 volunteers for each shift. Volunteers will help kids and their parents to put on snow shoes and walk down a course of snow or straw.  We will be discussing with parents how to get kids outside during the winter and demonstrate inexpensive but effective clothing for young kids.


Shifts are from  10:30-1:15 and 12:45-3:30, both days.  Volunteers must be youth qualified with Mountaineers.  Activity is outside, so come prepared for old, wind, and rain (although we will be somewhat sheltered!)

Contact leader directly to sign up for shifts.
