Hey kids, if you're bummed out because the snow has melted away, cheer up - there's always summer camp. The days of arts and crafts, s'mores and lame sing-a-longs around the campfire are long gone. These days, snowboarding kids are heading to places like Mt. Hood, Oregon, and Whistler/Blackcomb in British Columbia to ride all summer long.
The number of camps to choose from is only eclipsed by the number of professional snowboarders who make appearances as guest coaches during the camps. Whether you're looking to get better on the rails, in the halfpipe or terrain park, or just keep the shredding stoke going during the "off season," you're sure to find what you're looking for at a summer camp.
The best part about attending one of these camps is that you'll have a leg up on everyone that spent the summer sitting around the pool, so you'll be ready to dominate the local competition scene when the season starts!
