North Pole Santa School

This 2-Day School, Rated 4.5 Stars, Is Held at YOUR Location

Instead of traveling to a Santa Claus school, let me travel to you.

For a fixed fee plus my travel expenses, I will travel to your location and hold two days of classes. Get together a group of Santa’s, Mrs. Claus & Elves  and split the cost. 

Instead of a lecture with lots of PowerPoint slides, my school includes stories of the good, the bad and the ugly learned from my experience and from other Santas, demonstrations and group discussion. To facilitate discussions, class size is kept low (24 or fewer).

Each student or couple receives a copy of "North Pole Santa Claus Guide."

At the end of the Santa School, each student will know they now have a group of new friends whom they can call on anytime for help, suggestions and fellowship.
