Marshmallows & Stories at the Dartmouth Outing Club House

If cabin fever has set in for you and your family, why not check out the last Story Time and Marshmallow Roast on Sunday, March 4th?

Children ages three to eight, with their parents, can listen to stories by the fireplace in the main room of the Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC) House on Occom Pond. Then, roast marshmallows by the campfire and, weather permitting, spend some time skating, cross-country skiing, or sledding.
Occum Pond is located near the Hanover Country Club on Clement Road. It’s named after Samson Occom, who was Eleazar Wheelock’s first Native American student. To its north is the Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC) House, which was built in 1929. Today, it’s where you can rent winter equipment such as skates, snowshoes, and skis. It’s also used for ILEAD’s continuing education classes and for private functions.

The story time and marshmallow roast are free activities. The fun will take place from 11 am to noon. If you want to cross-country ski, a full-day ski package is $9 for children up to age 12 and $20 for adults. Snowshoes or ice skates can be rented for $7 for children up to 12 and $15 for adults. Hockey sticks are also available to rent for $2.
