We’re lucky to have an action sports training ground like Woodward here in our own backyard. Pros and Olympic athletes from around the world train at Woodward, and each summer kids seven and up can attend a week-long, overnight camp to learn, tune-up and master their skills.
Over the summer campers have access to the Barn, on-snow freestyle ski and ride terrain parks on Copper Mountain, and the Union Creek Plaza zone. Campers can pick their sports experience from these exciting camp options: snowboard, ski, skateboard, BMX, mountain bike, scooter and cheer camps.
Woodward Summer Camp Rates and Dates
The Barn is an indoor 19,400 square foot playground that will delight kids and adults alike. Olympic-grade trampolines, foam pits, ramps to foam, and multiple skate areas make this place awesome to pros and beginners. Any age or ability level can take advantage of what the Barn has to offer.
Campers also get access to the Barn’s indoor skate/bike park with pump track, jumps, mini ramps, and a bowl. (BMX riders, skateboarders, scooter riders and mountain bike riders will get outside park and on-mountain riding as well.)
Even if you’re not a camper, anyone seven and older can take a 2-hour intro session designed for first time visitors. During your first hour, you’ll get comfortable with the trampolines, foam pits, spring floor and other features in the Barn. The second hour lets you choose to continue on with your coach to the Skatelite & foam pit jump introduction, or you can continue playing on your own in the trampoline area and skate/bmx areas.
Once you’ve had an intro session the Barn, you can drop-in for a 2 hour open gym style session where you can use the Barn to work on individual skills, and focus your training on the trampolines, jumps, pump track, spring floor, foam pits, or any of the skate features. Coaches will be stationed around the Barn to supervise the session and offer tips and tricks to help you progress safer and faster than ever before.
On-snow summer experience
Where else in Colorado can you ski and snowboard through the entire summer?
Two different terrain parks (Pipeline Park and Big Island Park) and 156 acres of snow (man-made and natural) make for great conditions all summer long.
Pipeline Park is serviced by the SuperTube surface lift, one of the longest and fastest surface lifts in North America for top to bottom laps. This park is open to campers only.
Union Creek Plaza
This new outdoor zone for all levels of campers who skateboard, ride BMX bikes and scooters get the chance to experience the Skatelite ramps with features like the new box jump, quarter pipes, and a mini ramp.
Chris Stellato, Woodward’s Regional Marketing Supervisor, says that “visiting pros and sponsor company reps join our summer camps for as many weeks as possible. This unique experience lets campers get meaningful instruction that keeps the fun and engagement level high. ”
Stellato says campers look up to these pro and rep coaches and that “while they’ll show them how to stomp a new trick, they’ll also help teach them how to make friends at camp, how to cheer their buddies on and how to really get the most out of their experience. They’re amazing people, too, and they add to the vibe of the camp and take it to another level.”
In addition to these visiting coaches, Woodward’s professional staff is comprised of a high-quality group of counselors and coaches. “Not only to Woodward campers get sports performance, progression and technique, they also get to be around counselors focused on helping them experience personal and skill level growth in a safe, encouraging environment.” says Stellato.
And Woodward is more than just a sports camp, it’s a complete summer camp experience where after a day of fun focusing on their favorite sport they also get to participate in theme parties, bonfires, and a talent show.
“This is a week where our Woodward campers get to hone their sports skills, make great memories, create new friendships and grow personally. At the end of the day their counselors put them to bed exhausted, happy and ready for another fun day!" says Stellato.
