"Being a parent and a WinterKids volunteer is a wonderful way to give back, but it also brings it full circle for me. My employer supports WinterKids and encourages my participation which makes it so easy to volunteer! Oh, and don't forget the WinterKids staff, they have FUN written all over them!"

"The WinterKids Guide to Outdoor Active Learning has brought so much to our school, not just in ways that keep the children physically active but also in ways to keep them engaged socially and emotionally. Many of the activities are geared to get the children working together and becoming a team, no winners, no losers...just kids having fun."

Winter is Fun
  • Many thanks to the folks from Acadia Insurance and @GPSMaine, who helped us get our new furniture assembled here in our new Westbrook office!
  • “I am SO thankful for the impact the WinterKids Winter Games competition has had on our kids. In this short time, the changes in attitudes, physical activity, and even the helpfulness of students was very heart-warming. Though we didn’t take the Gold in Piscataquis, the positive results are undeniable! Thank you for this opportunity to encourage, engage, and challenge our kids (and ourselves)!” -Wendy Lariviere Viera, School Nurse for the Piscataquis County School

  • “My son fell in love with cross-country skiing this winter, joined his middle school team, and WinterKids programs enabled him to practice more than he otherwise would have been able to. He could go and affordably practice outside of team practice hours so that he was a better competitor. We are so grateful!” -Jessica V., WinterKids Parent
