Skateboarding in the Concrete Jungle during Session 7.
It’s been almost a week since summer camp ended, so I think it’s ok if we start talking about how much we miss it. Summer 2012 was super rad. We skated so much, shredded every day, played tons of games, met our favorite pros, and made a lot of new friends! It’s almost impossible to pick our favorite moments from summer, each session had new people, new events, an awesome park, and tons of fun. We wanted to thank everyone who came to Windells this year and made it the best summer ever, so here are a couple of photos that show a little bit of the excitement this summer.
Session 7 was the Flow Team Takeover. They held two of the most epic sponsor nights: an M&M sorting contest and an insane relay race. Here, the Flow Microns face off against the Am Team in the skating, biking, running race. The Ams won, but it was close!
Session 6 skate campers at Vancouver skatepark. Skate campers traveled all over Oregon and Washington to find the best parks this summer.
The jumps in the park were the best ever this summer.
Bonfire Pipe to Pipe! This is one of the most fun days of the summer. The course was so cool and the skate side of the competition was mind-blowing.
Knockout went down on the regular–this photo is from Stevie Bell Bump in Session 4.
Session 3, the Rome Team came to camp. Marie-France Roy and Mary Rand coached a girls’ clinic on this flat box.
Oh yeah, the snowboarding and skiing was great, of course. And, there were lots of opportunities to get the shot if you wanted to film with the Windells Media crew.
The park was on point all summer. Each session, features were changed and things were moved around, so it was always exciting to ride.
Session 1 Rome held a high ollie contest (look it’s June and it’s like winter at the mountain!) Rome Am and Windells Digger Riley Nickerson ollies the bar with the campers.
Thank you to all of the campers who came to Mount Hood to hang out with us, to our staff who put their hearts into making every day the best day ever at Windells, to the riders, skiers, skaters, and bmxers who came out to shred and meet campers, and to our sponsors who provide so much for the experience of our campers! Thanks for making 2012 the best summer yet! See you guys on the hill this winter–we’re already counting down to next summer!
