Children in Grades 3-6 will enjoy a fun night of skiing at Ski Sundown with the Barkhamsted Recreation Dept!  All registration forms must be completed and paid for by Friday, October 28 at the Halloween Dance.  (Please register on time to help ensure a safe and fun program.  Important-The program requires one total check by the town to be made out to Sundown.  All registrations must be complete by 10/28/22 in order for everything to be submitted to Ski Sundown on time. NO late registrations will be acceptedChaperones and volunteers are essential in order for this program to be possible. We ask this year parents ski with their children if possible and children must be accompanied by a parent/caregiver while at Sundown.  There may still be COVID-19 safety protocols that Ski Sundown has in place.  Our focus is on skiing and keeping the children outdoors for ski club and not much time will be spent in the lodge at all.   Please consider this before registering your child.  We encourage parents and caregivers to also ski with their child and could take their own child to their car to warm up if needed.    Please email Donna Bastrzycki at if you can also help out as a volunteer or chaperone by Wed. November 30. Thanks.
