Weather Hotline Update


For the weekend of February 12 – 14, 2016, all winter programs will operate as scheduled.  The forecast calls for Saturday temperatures to range from the single digits above zero to about 13 below zero at 8am.  Though chilly, this temperature range still falls within our guidelines for conducting safe winter program. 

 Specific to our Polar Cubs program, the national weather service is predicting that the strong winds and resulting wind chill will have subsided by the time we begin program at 9am.  Temperatures are expected to be higher on Sunday.

 As always, we will make adjustments, when needed, to our outdoor program to ensure that our youth have a safe, fun and memorable experience. 

 For more information on our severe weather policies please visit or call 651-254-9134
