Destination Caldwell volunteers and Indian Creek Plaza staff have created an ice-skating program, the SK8 Ribbon Coalition, with the mission to create a mentorship program within our community that empowers youth and teaches them fundamental life skills through ice skating.
Children in Caldwell, Canyon County, and Owyhee County 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.
During each session, each participant will receive an ice-skating lesson, a snack, and a warm drink. Children who complete at least three (3) sessions and come to the final party will receive a certificate of completion and a free skate pass for future use!
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. If you would like to make a donation that will have a true impact on the children in our community, please contact Melissa Sherman, today.
