Christmas Tree Harvest

Friday, November 24 to Saturday, December 24, 2017

Protect Waskesiu from wildfires as you get into the spirit of the season, and cut your own Christmas tree! Fill a thermos of hot chocolate, pick up a permit from the Visitor Centre, and start the search for a Christmas tree that fits your family. By harvesting a young spruce or pine tree in the Waskesiu Community Fuel Break, you are helping to maintain this critical fire management tool that helps to protect Waskesiu from the threat of wildfire.

Waskesiu Snow Days

Throwing snowballs

February 16 to 25, 2018

This February break, embrace winter in the beauty of Saskatchewan's boreal forest and enjoy a number of FREE activities! This annual mid-winter event is jam-packed so families can enjoy the outdoors while school is out. Take part in Indigenous programming, live music, ice-fishing, scavenger hunts, and cross-country skiing. There’s an activity for everyone. After a day of fun, sit around the camp stove and warm up at the enclosed kitchen shelter near the main beach! Instead of a snowman, build a wind break on a south facing beach, create a snow lounge-chair and read your favourite novel in the sunshine.
