GRIT ‘N Snow – Award Winning Program! Grades 3-8 (All Levels Welcome)

The Morris County of Commerce Award for Innovative Program of the Year and the National Ski Area Association Award for Mountains are for Everyone! GRIT ‘n Snow is a Youth Resilience Series program in collaboration with Mountain Creek and the Mental Health Association to guide children towards developing strong mental health and well-being AND learn how to snowboard! This 8-week program features 3-indoor sessions at the Y including indoor snowboard lessons from Mountain Creek pros before we take it to the mountain for 5 trips with lessons on the snow. Every session and trip we will be doing games and activities that create a safe environment for kids of all backgrounds to build their confidence, make new friends, and grow their resiliency in time (their GRIT).

The LHY’s Youth Resilience Series allows kids of all backgrounds to learn how to snowboard from Mountain Creek pros by providing this program at an unbeatable cost. GRIT ‘n Snow is a core-value driven program that challenges kids to make new skills, new friendships, and a new mindset. Adult mentorship and support from Mountain Creek, the Mental Health Association, and the Y help lay the foundation for resilience so our kids can get back up with confidence.

Parent partnership is key! There will be a mandatory attendance in week 1 for the participants and their guardians. Come prepared to play together.
