S-Camp Kids Program

5-12 years old
Morning Session 9:00am-12:00pm | Afternoon Session 1:00pm – 4:00pm | SUNDAYS 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Have your child join the ever-growing group of young skiers and snowboarders learning to ski and ride in the Enchanted Forest themed learning area. Specially designed for play and skill building, our S-Camp sessions provide a fun and unique twist on the traditional teaching method. Like all of our instruction programs, S-Camp allows new snowsport enthusiasts exclusive use of our Terrain Based Learning features.
Our day begins with Check-in between 8:30 and 8:55 for the morning session and 12:30 to 12:55 for our afternoon session. Drop-in/check-in will take place in the Yurt (tent structure) on the East side of the main lodge. Parents will then need to stop by the Main Snowsports desk inside to finalize any remaining paperwork etc. Parents are welcome to enjoy a warm beverage by the fire in the lodge or observe from the observation area with other parents. S-Camp will use a variety of learning techniques, both on and off skis, to provide an active way of learning difficult skills through fun and active play and new ranges of motion. Each S-Camp participant will receive a snack and warm beverage during the session.
