About Our Culture

A Culture for Everyone

Winter4Kids exists to create healthy lifestyles and influence behaviors of youth through winter activities. Better health and attitudes are the result of increased moderate to vigorous activity, nutritious food, and personal development. Lives are changed and outlooks are brighter as each of our participants become better individuals through the mastery of snow and life skills. Our youth use these experiences to explore and pursue new academic, life and sport opportunities.

Founded in 2014, Winter4Kids at the National Winter Activity Center embraced the dream that every kid should benefit from the rich experience of the outdoors in winter. Now we begin our next five years, building on the 8,671 we have served to reach 40,000 more. With that goal of serving more than a few hundred non-profit organizations and communities, we rely on philanthropy, community support and earned income.
