SKIing and Snowboarding for Disabled and Underprivileged Children and older Kids.

SkiDUCK is a grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of disabled and underprivileged children by teaching and sharing the joys of skiing and snowboarding.

We're ENTIRELY volunteer-based (NO paid salaries!) so ALL donations received go directly to support kids' ski and snowboard programs! We're committed to partnering with local organizations with similar goals of serving underprivileged youth.

And in areas where these needs aren't yet being served, we seek to establish a sustainable model of service with local resources and volunteers.

If your community or organization is interested in partnering with SkiDUCK to establish or enhance a program to help disadvantaged youth onto the slopes, give us a QUACK!

This summer camp serves kids and teens ages 9 to 17. One and two-week sessions are available in June and July.
