Outdoor Mentor Information Session

Saskatoon Cycles is looking for a group of fun, enthusiastic people who would like to be “Outdoor Mentors” to those in our community who are uncomfortable with winter. That could be New Canadians who are experiencing winter for the first time. Or it could be someone who’s just never taken “the risk” to see if winter outdoors can be enjoyed. 

Saskatoon and surrounding area offers all these amazing and fun activities:

  • A walk on Meewasin Trail
  • Tobogganing
  • Cross-country skiing
  • Downhill skiing
  • Snowshoeing
  • Skating
  • Ice hockey or shinny
  • Frisby on the snow
  • Crokicurl ((Broadway) 
  • Snowball fight
  • Capture the flag in a park
  • Running/jogging 
  • Snow Fort/Igloo making
  • Trail making
  • Meditating with nature
  • Fox & Hen
  • Snowboarding 
  • Ski Sailing
  • Bird/Sky watching

So, no matter who it is that needs a little help, we want to have an Outside Mentor come alongside them to:

  • give them some guidance getting ready to go outside (“dress warm” can mean lots of different things)
  • Get them to winter activity locations (skating rinks, toboggan hills, etc)
  • Help them understand what to do and how to do it safely
  • And then participate with them in whatever winter activity you’ve decided to do

If you’d be interested in helping out a fellow Saskatoonian, we want you to come to a 30 minute, online, Exploring Outdoor Mentoring session.

Coming to the session doesn’t commit you to being a mentor!

The session is just to explain what your activities and responsibilities as an Outdoor Mentor would be. At the end of the session you’ll be given the opportunity to sign up as a mentor.

If you are intrigued, please let us know by filling out the form below and pick which of the two dates works best for you to come to a session.

Looking forward to seeing you at one of the sessions!

Thanks for your interest in being an Outdoor Mentor to our community in Saskatoon!
