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.
We're excited to offer to skate programs this summer... one at Hedgehog Skatepark in Salem, and a 3-day Discovery Skate at Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy in Dorchester using our new Freshpark setup!
This will be our second summer partnering with Levitate Surf Shop to offer a 6-day surf program down at the ocean in Hull! Can't wait to catch some waves with the youth!
The Latest from Chill Boston
CHILL BRINGS FRESHPARKS TO BOSTON
We're stoked to be able to offer a new feature for our summer skate this year... a Freshparks mobile skatepark setup! This is an awesome opportunity for our youth partnership agencies, as it avoids the hassle of transporting youth to and from the skatepark. We'll be giving this new gear a go at our Girls Discover Skate in Dorchester next week - stay tuned for pics!
Our Host MountainS
Wachusett Mountain & McIntyre Ski Area
Chill Boston is stoked to continue our partnership with Wachusett Mountain Ski Area!
We use our time on the ride up to Wachusett Mountain to introduce the weekly theme through an activity, and reinforce the concept during our time on the mountain. This structure allows participants to make meaningful connections to the curriculum while experiencing the innate joy of snowboarding.
Chill Boston also stoked to form a new partnership opportunity with McIntyre Ski Area!
We're excited to be able to expand our programming into the Merrimack Valley! We'll be bringing youth from Boston and Lawrence to McIntyre Ski Area in Manchester, NH for the first time.
