Time: Sat, Dec 2, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
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.
The first fit day is Saturday, December 2, from 9am to 1 pm, at the CLC YMCA in Damariscotta. Two more fittings will be held at the new Midcoast Conservancy office at 290 Atlantic Highway (Rt.1) in Edgecomb on Dec. 14 and Jan. 9.
The child who will use the skis must be present. Any questions about the ski lease program can be directed to Andy, firstname.lastname@example.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.
