Enjoy Norval winter family open house this Sunday

Please join us for our annual winter family open house at the Norval Outdoor School this Sunday, Jan. 22 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Stephen House will be open and food and refreshments will be available.

Winter open house 2015 2These free open houses are held on Sunday afternoons in October, January, March and May. The idea is to open up Norval to UCC community members and offer a variety of outdoor activities to enjoy, including:

  • Cross-country skiing: Bring your own or use ours. We have lots of skis and boots in all sizes. Instructors will teach beginners and take them on a ski tour. More advanced skiers are welcome to follow one of our marked trails. The trails aren’t track-set.
  • Tobogganing: Zoom down our popular toboggan hill in the arboretum. Bring your own or use one of our many carpet sleds.
  • Winter hiking: Winter is a beautiful time to go for a guided walk around the property. Feel free to wear a pair of our snowshoes.

Come explore Norval at this beautiful time of year.  Click here to register. If you’ve any questions, please email Samantha Kerbel at skerbel@ucc.on.ca.
