About Chill DC



Chill DC runs skate and snowboarding youth development programs for youth between the ages of 10 and 18 years old. Through these programs, we teach important life lessons like Respect, Patience, Persistence, Courage, Responsibility, and Pride. 

Chill works with youth from low-income communities, juvenile justice, mental health, drug treatment, transitional housing, foster care, and after-school programs to overcome challenges they are facing in their everyday lives.


We are happy to announce that we are returning to Liberty Mountain Resort, in Fairfield, PA! We are very thankful of how wonderful the staff and administration are for our programming.


We are gearing up to start our Fall skate session for both DC and Baltimore this October! If you are interested in helping with our upcoming programming, you can take the first step to getting involved here: volunteer!


The Latest from Chill DC



Join us at the orioles

We’ll be at the Baltimore Orioles game on Friday, June 28, 2019 to watch them take on the Cleveland Indians. If you purchase your tickets through our link (coming soon!) Chill will get $5 from every ticket sold. The first 20,000 fans will also receive an Orioles floppy hat, and get to enjoy music and fireworks after the game.

I learned to be proud of everything you do and not to have any regrets about learning something new.

Our Host Mountain

Liberty Mountain Resort

Chill DC is stoked to partner with Liberty Mountain Resort again for the 2020 season!

We use our time on the ride up to the Liberty Mountain Resort 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.
