One word: snow. That’s right – campers at Woodward Copper Summer Camp ski or snowboard on real snow in June and July. Thanks to over 23 feet of natural snow that fell at Copper in the 2014/15 winter season, Woodward Copper is able to create not one but two on-snow terrain parks for campers to enjoy. A typical day at Woodward Summer Camp includes the morning spent on-snow then the afternoon spent in the Barn – a massive 19,400 square foot indoor training facility offering trampolines, foam pits and ramps for those of all skill levels. Woodward Copper Summer Camp doesn’t end at skiing and snowboarding. Several other disciplines are offered including BMX, Mountain Bike, Scooter, Skateboarding, Digital Media and Cheer.
The chosen discipline is the focus of the week but other activities make up the camper experience including go-karting, bumper boating, rock climbing and mini-golf. Each evening, Woodward Copper Summer Camp counselors offer fun, group activities for all to participate in before heading to bed in dorm-like housing in the EDGE building located right on site at Copper Mountain.
