Volunteer Time is Starting!

Kawartha Nordic is a non-profit ski club with a few dedicated staff, but largely maintained and operated by volunteers. This means that we would love to have you help with the club's activities.

Please consider signing up for the below stated volunteer opportunities through our KN ivolunteer platform. 

Fall Trail  and  Opening  Prep

There is always lots of work to be completed around the buildings and on the trails at Kawartha Nordic in the fall. Tasks include:
  • firewood cut , chopped, split and dispersed to piles
  • Trails cleared of debris, deadfall, rocks and trimmed back
  • Touch up paint jobs
  • Building area grass mowed
With sign up dates starting as early as October 7th, visit the KN ivolunteer sight to choose a suitable task and date for you to enjoy the fall weather at the club.

Cabin Keepers

Kawartha Nordic has maintained, over the years, a dedicated group of volunteers known as the Cabin Keepers. These hard working individuals take a weekend shift or two during the ski season to complete the tasks required to run the Woodfine lodge, including;
  • Start and keep the lodge fires burning
  • keep the lodge clean
  • Stock up inside wood and kindling storage areas
  • Share site information and have an active presence with guests
  • Keep walkways and entrances free of snow and ice
  • Slip out for a ski
If you'd like to Cabin Keep for a day or two this winter please visit our ivolunteer sight above and choose your dates

Youth Programs  

The Youth Program at Kawartha Nordic is very popular, with the main focus being fun on the snow, and increasing the love of cross country skiing. This program is for children ages 4-14, and has the largest number of participants. We need your help! It takes many volunteers to make this program happen.

The program runs for 2 hours in the morning (10am-12pm) and afternoon (1-3pm), for 8 weeks during January and February. Volunteer coaches attend a morning or afternoon session. Even if you can only attend a limited number of Saturdays, your assistance would be greatly appreciated and will allow us to continue offering this fun program for our children.

A vulnerable sector police check (VSC) or attestation is required, and task instructions are provided for you onsite the day(s) you volunteer. There will be some additional training, and forms, for all volunteers to complete this season and information will be supplied once board approval has been established. These additional steps are due to new and important policies that have been introduced by Nordiq Canada (via XCSO).

Please consider signing up through the KN ivolunteer platform.
