    Come and experience our amazing winter program in the picturesque Sun Valley Resort. Your child will learn to ice skate, ski, participate in snowshoeing adventures and take magic rides on a horse drawn sleigh.
    But that’s not all! Sing winter songs, make snowflakes & ice sculptures, snuggle up with a hot cocoa and listen to great stories. Time will fly while engaged in winter-themed hands-on activities. Hope to see you there!
