- Kids' Ski Program - Thanks to private donations and a grant from the Oceana Youth Fund of the Community Foundation for Oceana County, OCCSA now has a good supply of ski equipment for children, ages 5-12. Each winter, OCCSA introduces the sport of cross country skiing to Third and Fourth Grade students in all of the elementary schools in the county - Hart, Pentwater, Shelby, and Walkerville.
Donations for the purchase of additional boots and new bindings for some adult skis are still welcome; the larger size ski equipment will enable OCCSA to better serve older children as well as adults at the annual Winter Fest.
