Edgecomb | Thu, Dec 14 | All Ages

SHARE:

Time: Thu, Dec 14, 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Location: Edgecomb

Description:

To get kids and families outside having fun in the snow, Midcoast Conservancy  partners with the Outdoor Sports Institute to lease affordable, quality cross country ski equipment to local kids ages kindergarten through eighth grade. Lease high quality skis, boots, and poles through Midcoast Conservancy for the entire winter; each child is sized for the gear and then takes it home for the season so they can ski on great equipment wherever, whenever they want.

This fitting will be at the new Midcoast Conservancy office at 290 Atlantic Highway (Rt.1) in Edgecomb. Two more fittings will be held, one at the CLC YMCA in Damariscotta on Dec. 2, and the other at the Edgecomb office on Jan. 9.

The child who will use the skis must be present. Any questions about the ski lease program can be directed to Andy, andyb@midcoastconservancy.org.

The ski lease package is $65 per participant. In addition, Midcoast Conservancy will hold the annual Kids XC-Ski Clinic for kids ages 5-12. The clinic will start Saturday, January 6 and run each Saturday morning until February 10. The clinic is the perfect setting for skiers of different levels to gain confidence and enjoy Hidden Valley Nature Center’s trails. Instructors use fun, non-competitive methods to get the skiers out on the trails having fun each week.
