Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol
Who We Are
Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol is a day camp where girls learn mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women of the mountain community. Throughout the day, participants are taught a range of outdoor skills that are utilized by ski patrollers to keep the mountain safe. Topics included first aid, avalanche control, snow science, weather stations, toboggans, avalanche rescue techniques, avalanche dogs and much more. There are also plenty of snack breaks, high fives and unicorns delivering hot cocoa!
Our goal with SheJumps Wild Skills is to see girls learning, having fun and connecting in an encouraging environment with amazing instruction and support from female mentors. We want Wild Skills to be an experience they will remember, one that will spark a lifetime of passion for the outdoors and will remind them that they are capable of anything. Giving participants, young and old, the opportunity to learn skills in a fun yet challenging setting develops perseverance and fosters confidence.
