Children’s Academy

December 17-19, 2018
Stratton, VT

“These events are made possible in part through a grant from the PSIA-AASI Education Foundation.”

The Children’s Academy is a fun, exciting event where you can learn the most up-to-date information about teaching children.  Two and Three day options are offered.  The focus this year will be on teaching teens and older children’s lessons, and modernizing the CAP model for today’s adolescent.  There will also be an adaptive perspective on how medical or behavioral issues may have an effect on children’s lessons.

The theme this year is:  Catch Me if you Can!  We will discuss how to catch an older child’s interest, and do it in a way that won’t jeopardize their standing among their peers. Of course, we won’t ignore the needs of the younger child either.   We’ll be exploring:

  • Motivations for older kids
  • Structured environment versus an unstructured environment for older kids
  • Activities for older kids

There is also a combination Level I/CS1 that is offered at the event for instructors who want to achieve their Alpine or Snowboard Level I and Children’s Specialist 1 at the same time.

On snow and indoor activities will provide plenty of opportunity to learn with other children’s instructors and children’s program supervisors and directors.  Come join in the fun!

Lodging:  Black Bear Lodge

Single $89; Double $89; Triple $114, Quad $139
