Summer Camp Suggestions – 9 Things to Consider

  1. http://www.highcascade.com/
  2. Windells Camp- Welches, Mt. Hood, OR. Located in the middle of the forest, Windells has that quintessential summer camp feeling. Plus they have ski, skate and BMX camps, unlike HCSC. Their indoor and outdoor skate facilities are incredible and their location is a bit closer to civilization. This camp also has adult sessions all summer long! And if you go and fall so in love you don’t want to leave, you don’t have to, just enroll in the Windells Academy, learn and ride all year. $1699-$1799 depending on the session. http://windells.com/
  3. South American Snow Sessions- Catedral Alta Patagonia, Argentina. Now, I don’t know much about SASS, only that it is awesome. If you want to have an out of the country adventure and some incredible skiing and riding, this is for you! Their session dates are super flexible, so you can customize your camp/vacation experience. Stay on the slopes, and have the world’s top skiers and snowboards as your guides. $2595 over 18, 8 day session, $2793 under 18 8 day sessions. http://www.sassglobaltravel.com/argentina/
Runner Up– Camp of Champions – Whistler, BC, Canada. Premier ski and snowboard camp (and mountain biking too!), located in the heart of the adorable and super fun Whistler Village ski town. $2395 deluxe camp (includes coaching). http://campofchampions.com/

 

Parting Words- My 10th suggestion regarding summer snowboard camps, is to make sure and wax your board!! Seriously. Conditions are so different in the summer than in the winter. Make sure you use a warm weather wax, and hopefully you will be able to get the speed you need in the slush, won’t damage your base as much if you run over the occasional lava rock, and will slide better on those wet boxes and rails. Good luck, and God speed!
