The RPN Program
The Rensselaer Plateau Nordic Program
Registration Is Open for Our 2017 Program
Established in 2010, RPN is a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3); volunteer- run organization dedicated to providing recreational Nordic skiing opportunities and wellness education that result in improved health outcomes for New York’s Capital region children and their families. RPN offers recreational cross country ski instruction to children over a 2 month period, while providing families support and information on healthy choices and outdoor recreational opportunities. The non-competative RPN program introduces kids and families to the sport of cross-country skiing through formal instruction, organized activities and games, while emphasizing fun, skills development and safety.
