Frontier in the Community: Supporting Campers and Kids

Share this article

What do summer camp and hockey have in common? Staying connected with Frontier Communications! We are proud to be a sponsor of both the Gretzky Hockey School at Frontier Ice Arena and Camp Providence in Washington. Every child should have access to fun, safe activities that enhance their summer experience. We’re proud to support these endeavors through partnerships we have with the Gretzky Hockey School and Camp Providence.


Frontier Brings Broadband Service to Camp

Camp Providence is a first-rate summer camp for children with special needs and their siblings, ages 2 to 10. Located in Everett, Washington, Camp Providence is funded through grants from Providence General Children’s Association and Providence General Foundation and is staffed by volunteers.

3 years ago, Frontier provided a solution to a longstanding need at Camp Providence. By donating Wi-Fi equipment and broadband service, Frontier has made it easier for camp staff to have access to medical files, dietary and activity restrictions, and other important information for each camper. Staff are now able to view medical documents online, communicate with medical staff and experts as needed, and determine or evaluate any required treatment – without leaving the camp. The parents who still choose to remain close by have access to Wi-Fi services to continue their on-line activities.

Access to broadband has made all the difference for both campers and staff. Whether checking important medical information, emailing parents or video conferencing home, high-speed Internet service helps make summers at Camp Providence that much better!


Gretzky Hockey School Takes the Ice at Frontier Ice Arena

The Gretzky Hockey School was created to give hockey players a rare opportunity to learn the “Gretzky Hockey Philosophy.” The Gretzky Hockey School is intended to be a fun and unique experience with on-ice skill development from some of the best instructors in the world, coupled with off-ice activities to help improve the students’ skills sets. During their week-long class, students meet and learn from current and former NHL greats.

The Gretzky Hockey School visited the Frontier Ice Arena in Coeur d’Alene, ID, the last week of July. We’re proud to help make amazing opportunities for young athletes in our community, like the Gretzky Hockey School, happen through our sponsorship of the Frontier Ice Arena.

By providing Wi-Fi services to the Frontier Ice Arena, visitors to the arena can snap and share photos from the Gretzky Hockey School online as well as access their favorite website and apps on their phone.

Camp Providence and the Gretzky Hockey School are just two of the many community events we support in our communities. Whether providing complimentary Wi-Fi or broadband services, donating employee volunteer hours, or financial support Frontier is proud to support hundreds of events in the towns and communities we serve!
