HAWS Executive Director, Lynn Olenik has huskys and as a hobby does sled dogging. Each year she brings her dogs and sled into HAWS at Winter Camp time and talks about the hobby and sport of using dogs to pull a sled. If the weather cooperates and the ground has the right amount and kind of snow she takes the kids on a short ride.
Despite the fact that the ride was extremely short, the kids had a blast -- almost as much fun as the dogs themselves!
As winter camp comes to an end I'll start preparing for summer camp. And while taking a ride in the snow on a sled pulled by dogs in July isn't going to be an option, these past 4 days have given me some new ideas to make our kids programs even better in the future.
