About Chill Boston
Chill Boston has big news! We are now a year-round youth development program. Since the Chill Foundation launched the Boston location in 1997, roughly 950 youth have been given the opportunity to unique physical activity and positive guidance to better their current situations. After 19 years of operating a seasonal snowboard program, Chill Boston has demonstrated the need and community support to expand the site to year-round. This expansion involves implementing SUP, surf, and skate programs. The expansion will allow Chill Boston to reach more underserved youth in the Greater Boston Area.
Chill Boston just wrapped our first skate program! It was held at the Lynch Family Skatepark, a project of the Charles River Conservancy. Now that we are a year-round program, we look forward to many more days dropping in this rad new park.
In August, Chill Boston will be partnering with Levitate Surf Shop to offer a 6-week surf program in Hull, Massachusetts! We're stoked to be running a full surf program for the first time this year.
Our first SUP program took place this past summer, and it was a huge hit! We couldn't have done it without help from Charles River Canoe and Kayak and a great new crew of volunteers and chaperones.
