December 29, 2020 – The WinterKids App is the perfect way to begin your new year with outdoor activity. Full of free and discounted winter sports opportunities, the native, mobile WinterKids App is a great way to stay safe and have fun outdoors with your whole family.

A family membership covers a family of 5 (an adult and up to 4 kids) for the whole year, November 1, 2020 – October 31, 2021. Kids 17 and younger are all included in your family membership. Typically $35 per family, this year you can name your price! If you need it, it can be completely free for your family. You can enter any amount when signing up for your membership.

“With outdoors being the safest place to be in this pandemic, WinterKids offers amazing opportunities for families statewide and in New Hampshire. We are excited to extend a ‘pay what you can’ WinterKids App membership for families this year” says Julie Mulkern, WinterKids Executive Director. “The App is an excellent way for families of all ages to try new winter sports together, connecting to the state’s natural heritage and finding the joy and health benefits in our longest season,” says Mulkern. 

The WinterKids App is FREE to download in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Get the app today to explore and preview all the offers waiting for you! Join the WinterKids App Facebook Group to share photos, tips and experiences with other WinterKids families.

Students, Teachers, and Families Impacted in Maine & New Hampshire since 2010!

WinterKids is the only nonprofit in Maine dedicated exclusively to increasing outdoor physical activity in children and families during our longest, most sedentary season.  

The shorter, darker, and colder days of winter and the increasing allure of screen time make it all too easy for kids and families to “hibernate.”  At WinterKids, we make it our business to provide kids, parents, and teachers with the right option: to get outside, get active, and have fun in the winter – and year-round.

Outdoor kids are active kids. Active kids are healthy kids. Healthy kids are happy kids. Happy kids are “winter kids.”



With outside being the safest and best place to be, WinterKids has truly thrived during the pandemic! We were able to reach nearly 27,000 kids, teachers and families in Maine and New Hampshire with creative adaptations for safe, outdoor adventures. Check out our 2020/2021 Season Wrap Up Report!
