WHY WINTERKIDS?

Your support allows WinterKids to help thousands of kids and families to get outside and be active in the winter in all 16 counties of Maine and in 5 counties in New Hampshire.

Thanks to you, we’ve reached 229,428 kids, teachers, and families in ME & NH since 2010!

Presenting Sponsor

We are proud to have the support of The Thomas Agency as a multi-year partner to WinterKids and 3rd year presenting sponsor of the WinterKids License to Chill (Virtual Edition!).

To find out why they’re so passionate about making a difference in their community by supporting organizations like WinterKids, we reached out to Vaughn Clark, president of The Thomas Agency (and part-owner of Mt. Abram Ski Area!) for a quick interview.

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.”
