Kamview Jackrabbit Youth Program


Kamview Nordic Centre is proud to host the Kamview Jackrabbit Youth Program.  This volunteer-run organization coaches 100+ children, ages 4 to 14, every winter.

Lessons run on Saturday mornings from approximately 10 am to noon.  Exact start time will be decided by your leaders.  Level 4 and Track Attack skiers also have Thursday evening sessions.  This year the program will run from December 7, 2019 until March 21, 2020.  Please note that once registered you will receive further information from the coaches and coordinator.

Registration for the upcoming 2019/2020 season of lessons is now open on Zone4 until the end of December.

Kamview Jackrabbits are coached by a dedicated group of parent and youth volunteers, and often, as the kids grow up, our volunteers move on!  A heartfelt thank-you to all who have volunteered with us over the years.  We are always keen to recruit new coaches.  Training is available (and paid for by the club), so here is a great opportunity to improve your skiing and coaching.  If you know of any parents, grandparents or youth who would be interested in volunteering to have fun with the children on snow, please let us know!
