Snowboarding Camp

For kids looking for a little more adventure than just going to camp as usual this summer, Mt. Hood’s summer snowboarding camps provide a great opportunity. They offer an all-inclusive 8-day summer camp for snowboarders of all skill levels for kids between the ages of 9 and 20.

The camp is not only a fun opportunity to play in the snow, it’s also a real opportunity to introduce your children to people from around the world.

Soft Start Program is perfect for kids without experience.

Typical Day at Summer Snowboard Camp

Like any camp, the summer snowboard camp offers both structure and fun. Kids wake up at 8:00 and head over to the Boardwalk for breakfast, and by 9:00 meet up with their coach and others to snatch up a lift ticket. Before they head, out they learn to check out their equipment, are reminded to put on their sunscreen and stretch out.

By 9:45 they’ll be experiencing summer snowboarding first hand. Campers ride the private Park and Pike with the coach. By noon they’ll have worked up an appetite. After a half hour lunch break they’ll take part in the Signature Session Pros clinic where they’ll learn to Hike the Super Pipe, hit some jumps, slide some rails, and more.

The session runs from 12:30 – 3:00 with a shuttle heading back to camp every 20 minutes for kids who get tired. Campers who leave are accompanied by a staff member. By 4:00 in the afternoon activities center back at the lodge where campers have the opportunity to take part in various activities.


Shuttles run every 20 minutes back to the lodge.

The lodge’s kitchen staff serves up a big home cooked meal between 5:30 – 7:00. At 7:15 everyone meets up again for a selection of evening activities that range from soccer, to mountain biking, to yoga, and more. There’s one thing for sure. There’s enough to do that no one is going to walk away bored.

By 9:30, curfew goes into effect. No one is allowed out after dark. From 9:30 – 11:00 everyone just kicks back, relaxes, and has a chance to get to know one another. 11:00 is lights out, and the following day it starts all over again!

Soft Start Program

For kids attending who have no experience, the Soft Start programs allows for total participation in all camp activities, but when it comes time to snowboard, they are placed in a specialized group designed to teach kids who have never been on a board. It’s a fun, fast, and easy way to learn.
