Sledding Races @ Coburn Park

Join the Skowhegan AmeriCorps Outdoor Recreation Program (SAORP) for an afternoon of sledding fun! Challenge your neighbor, or even a SAORP coach, to a race down the hill at Coburn Park. If you don’t like competition, you can freestyle until you’re too tired to climb anymore! Come make new friends as you sled away from the winter blues!

Bring anything that’ll slide – a cardboard box, garbage can lid, or even a baking sheet!

BYOS Learn to Cross-Country Ski @ Lakewood Golf Course

Come spend the afternoon learning how to cross-country ski! In Part 2 of this two-part series, our Skowhegan AmeriCorps Outdoor Recreation Program (SAORP) coaches will show you how the basics of shuffling, gliding, and turning. Don’t expect a boring lecture or intimidating skill tests. We’ll play lots of games! After our skill-building session, we’ll go out on the trail to practice our new-found skills and discover a great way to get outside in the winter! Conclude the evening by defrosting at the warming hut.

Bring your cross-country skis, plenty of water, and snacks as this is a deceitfully tiresome activity! Attendance to Part 1 is not required to participate in Part 2. Meet at the warming hut just across the street from the Lakewood Clubhouse.

This program is hosted in partnership with Lakewood Golf Course, and parking fees have been graciously sponsored by the Jim Browne Foundation. However, donations are welcomed!

Don’t forget to bring poop bags and clean up after your pet! Bring a headlamp or flashlight if you have one, and if you need to borrow snowshoes, let us know!
