Be an Olympian for a Day

Older kids - ages 14-16 - can sign up for a session of bobsled or skeleton clinics. Programs run form early June - August. Schedules, prices and information at www.UtahOlympicLegacy.com.

Get in Touch with Nature
The Swaner Perserve and EcoCenter is a 1200-acre nature preserve located in the New Park area of Park City. Swaner Perserve is a refuge for wildlife and the place to go to connect with our local, natural landscape.
