With colder temperatures and snow in the forecast, the Mission’s Downeast Campus is the place for winter activities and family fun. Every Saturday through February from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.—weather permitting—families with children are invited to ice skate, snowshoe, and enjoy indoor activities at the Mission’s Downeast Campus.
Interim Downeast Director Jenny Jones says, “We are excited to have winter activities back at the Mission, and we are happy that Mother Nature is allowing us the opportunity to offer so many great activities. As long as the ice stays frozen, we will be skating!”
This is a great time to try out ice skating and snowshoeing in a low-pressure, family-friendly environment. Bring your own skates or use the Mission’s as equipment in all sizes is available to borrow including skates, helmets, and snowshoes. Use of Mission equipment is free of charge. Warm up inside the EdGE Center and participate in indoor activities including coloring, games, and more. A free lunch is also available to participants. Meals change on a weekly basis to stay fresh and exciting.
“It’s wonderful to connect with Downeast families and build deeper relationships with them,” says Community and Family Engagement Program Manager Stephanie Moores. For more information, please contact the Maine Seacoast Mission at (207) 546-4466.
