Destination Caldwell and Indian Creek Plaza have created an ice skating program, the SK8 Ribbon Coalition, with a mission to create a mentorship program within our community that empowers youth and teaches them fundamental life skills through ice skating.
Children in Canyon County, Owyhee County, and surrounding areas between the ages of 12 and 16 are eligible to participate. The skate program will be held five consecutive Saturday mornings starting January 8, 2022, through February 5, 2022. Students will be automatically divided into two sessions - First Session 9:00 to 10:30 AM / Second Session 11:00 to 12:30 PM. If one of those sessions does not work for your student please email us - firstname.lastname@example.org.
*PLEASE NOTE* that although the application says this program is free to those who demonstrate financial need, we have received enough funding to cover the cost for the first 120 students to sign up for the program.
Destination Caldwell received a grant from The Whittenberger Foundation and the Nagel Foundation for the 2020-2021 SK8 Ribbon Coalition Program. We also received funding from MDU Resources Foundation for the 2021-2022 season. This grant allows us to empower, mentor, and teach fundamental life skills to teens through ice skating.
Destination Caldwell received $1,000 grant in 2020 from St. Lukes’s Community Health Improvement Fund. Thank you for supporting youth in our community!
It costs approximately $85 to provide ice skating for one child over a 5-week period, due to the amount of grant funding we have received this year the first 120 kids will receive scholarships for the program. If you would like to make a donation that will have a true impact on the children in our community, please contact Melissa Sherman, Indian Creek Plaza’s Program & Events Director, today.
