We were able to ski affordably and wouldn't have gotten to do this without the app. We also tried ice skating for the first time.

      Upgrade to a paid membership here: https://app.winterkids.org/membership/sign_up

      As a WinterKids Member, you will gain access to our winter offers for the whole family through the App. Annual membership costs $35 and covers a family of 5. Once you become a member you can log in on the App and use the discounts you want!

      IMPORTANT: Be sure to sign up for your membership and set up your family profile BEFORE showing up at a WinterKids partner location to redeem your first offer.

      Great question! A family membership grants you access through the App to discounts from our 50+ partners in Maine and New Hampshire. Our partners will have one or more standard offers valid for the whole season. They can also post new offers to your family through the season, and in the off-season! You can “favorite” one of our partners and choose to receive push notifications about new offers as they become available. We also have information about free activities and events on the App. You will be in the know for all things WinterKids!

      You can add extra children onto your account for $10/child. Please contact Josh Harrington, Manager of Family Programs, at jharrington@winterkids.org with your request.

      Yeah, sorta. Fill out the contact form below to connect with our Director of Family Programs and Outreach and inquire about becoming a member and accessing our discounts.

      We have recycled these programs to launch a brand new app for the whole family to enjoy! The App will have generous discounts from our partners available to kids age 3-17! You will have all of these discounts right at your fingertips when you sign up on our website as a WinterKids member and download the App.

      Thank you for your support! We loved the Passport too. After 20 years, it was time to create a more nimble, user-friendly, and efficient way to help more families explore the outdoors in the winter, and we are reducing our carbon footprint. One of the best features of the App is that new offers can be added throughout the season, and in other seasons. Check back frequently to see new offers.

      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.”

      SEASON WRAP UP

      FY2021

      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!

      annual report

      FY2020
