KIDS, TEACHERS, AND FAMILIES SERVED IN MAINE & NEW HAMPSHIRE
GET OUTSIDE! GET ACTIVE! HAVE FUN!
Our second year with our native, mobile app – The WinterKids App – saw over 5,300 users across Maine and New Hampshire. We added several new offers from NH rec areas and continue to find more ways children can stay active in the winter.
THANK YOU to our partners!
MOVE! LEARN! EXPLORE!
Two elementary schools in each of Maine’s 16 counties competed in a four-week outdoor physical activity and nutrition challenge during the month of January 2020 for cash prizes, equipment, and more.
The WinterKids Winter Games inspired 7,332 students and 1,113 teachers and staff from every county in Maine to go for the gold in 2020!
“The activities gave us new, fresh ways to get the kids engaged outside. Students enjoyed the inquiry, and structure, yet freedom in the way they were able to carry out the activities. It also gave us a great chance to work together as a school, team, and community. “

“Our students are much more aware of the fun they can have in these long winter months and it’s been wonderful to hear the positive feedback from our parents. It certainly made January fly right by!“

How can you pass up an opportunity to ski at night at the Loaf??! There is something magical about the mountain at night with all the lights on the trails! Even more, it is so inspirational to see all of those who have skied all night! Put this on your bucket list and help by volunteering at WinterKids!
