Being active as a family

Being a good role model isn't just about going to the gym or getting out for a run or walk.  It's also about organizing family time that is active and fun.   And, there is no end of great ways of spending time together:

  • Take advantage of nature – go off for the day – hike, fish, snowshoe, or go for a weekend camping trip.
  • Build a fort using willows, scraps of wood, and tarps strung up between trees.
  • Walk or cycle your neighbourhood or community.  Take the dog for a walk.
  • Learn about geocaching – there are several caches located in the Whitehorse area.  Geocaching too high tech?  No problem – organize a scavenger hunt.

  • See if some families in your neighbourhood are interested in a pick-up game of hockey, softball or basketball, or just some shooting hoops.
  • Plant a garden together.
  • Stuck inside?  No problem.  Put on some music and dance the day away!
