Sometimes good things come in small packages…especially when it comes to little rippers! Snowshoe’s Mountaineer Parks and Burton Snowboards are teaming up to host a BIG snowboard camp designed just for our Little Shredders! Strap on a snowboard for the very first time, hit that steep run you know you’re ready to rip, or smooth your style in the Terrain Park; whatever your snowboarding dreams, our lively, expert team of kid-at-heart coaches is ready and waiting to make your dreams come true! This is a camp for kids, so we figure why not throw in some extras near and dear to every kids heart; a pizza party, an ice-cream social, a goody bag…even a chance to show off your new skills in our Mountaineer Parks Progression Session park competition; especially designed to give any skill level a chance to win! Come on little snowboarders…come on up and show us big kids what it really means to have BIG fun!
Burton Kids Snowboard Camp – $279 + tax
Burton Kids Snowboard Camp Package (2 day lift ticket & rentals included) – $349+ tax
Ability levels: Never ever through advanced/expert terrain
Check in/out: Campers accompanied by parents will meet their coaches both days of camp at the Big Top; check in promptly at 8:30 and check out at 4:00pm. An adult guardian must be present at check in and check out. Children should come ready to hit the snow, properly dressed and with snowboard equipment.
Rentals: We highly recommend picking up rental equipment the night before the camp. If this is not possible please arrive at rentals an hour before camp begins – the rental process can take time.
Helmets: We’re all about fun AND safety at Snowshoe. All camp participants are required to wear a helmet which is included in all rental packages.
Dress: Acceptable dress is required to participate in camp. Please dress children in layers (no cotton base layers) with waterproof outer layers. Children need waterproof/resistant mittens or gloves, goggles, a hat that fits under a helmet, and a neck up. Wet and cold is zero fun and it hampers the learning process. Being dressed properly is the first step to making a day on snow awesome.
Breaks: Coaches will ensure campers take adequate breaks; hot chocolate/water and snacks are provided during break times.
Lunch: Main courses include pizza or chicken fingers, with a side of mixed vegetable or fruit selection. If your child has any food allergies or dietary restrictions, please let their coach know at morning check-in and we will make arrangements to provide an alternative lunch.
Weather Conditions: We’re holding camp no matter what the weather throws at us. We’re pretty experienced at adapting to mountain weather, and we’ll provide extra breaks and indoor activities if the elements turn extreme.
Pizza Party: We’re throwing a Pizza Party Saturday night from 6:30 to 8:30. An adult guardian must accompany campers to the Big Top for check in and pick them up at the end of the party.
Progression Session Competition: Snowboarders love their freestyle, and we’ve got the perfect event for campers of all ability levels who want to give competition a try. Progression Session Jam is a learning based competition where participants are coached through the session to help take their riding to the next level. Competitors are judged based on heart, attitude, dedication, and how far they progress individually from beginning to end of the event. Participants in Burton Kid’s Camp receive 50% off progression session entry fee. May be purchased at check in, day of camp.
Grom Jam:A grom is a young participant in extreme sports. A jam format allows participants to do as many tricks as possible in an hour. Burton Kids grom jam will include beginner features set up on Skidder slope exclusively for this event. Snowshoe coaches will be present to assist groms and to teach them new tricks. Participation is optional and all about fun and learning; everyone’s a winner!
