ALL GIRLS CAMP AT WINDELLS
Here at camp, it’s really fun to ride with the boys, but Windells understands that hanging out with just a group of ladies can be super fun, too. With this in mind, Windells offers a myriad of female-specific options and activities, so you can maximize your fun during your stay at the funnest place on Earth!
WINDELLS IS A GREAT PLACE TO BE A GIRL
Many of the best female professional snowboarders and skiers have spent time at Windells, as both campers and coaches, and have benefited from the special attention that Windells provides in order to make sure women are progressing and having a great camp experience both on and off hill.
DAYS ON HILL
Get the most out of your coaching group! At the mountain, you can ride or ski with a group of both guys and girls, or if you’d prefer, you can sign up for a girl-only group and get your shred on with like-minded females. Both options offer opportunities for learning and gaining confidence on hill. It’s good to have choices and Windells makes sure you can progress however you’re most comfortable. Windells’ coaching staff is made up of some of the best snowboarding and skiing coaches in the industry and is 100 percent committed to helping you learn and have fun.
AFTERNOONS AT CAMP
After you come down from the hill, there are tons of activities at camp to take part in. Girls can participate in any of the activities that are also open to boys, but in addition, Windells offers many female-only activities for both youth and adult campers.
Traditional camp activities like knockout, campfires and dodge ball run every day. You can also drop in on yoga classes or learn to knit your own signature beanies. Burton puts on a different sponsor nights each week for lady campers, ranging from a sundae night and intimate Q and A with the entire womens’ pro team (featuring two Olympic medalists), to Win a Date with Burton Pro, Zak Hale (sorry, ladies, no actual date here, just a ton of Burton gear up for grabs!). Betty Rides allowed females campers to let their hair down at Ladies Night each week, with 80s movies, nail polish, art contests, snacks and hanging out. This is only a sample of the tons of things there are to do at camp in the afternoons and evenings. Each day the schedule changes and new things to do are featured all the time!
SKATEBOARDING AND BMX

Want to brush up on your skating? You can thrash the bowls in BOB or fine tune your skills on the new cement set up in the middle of campus with the Ladies’ Progression Skate Clinics that are held every day, with levels for beginners all the way up to experienced skaters. If you have never skated or rode BMX before but you want to learn, Windells has you covered. The Demo Lab has any number of bikes and skateboards you can use to learn how to push around, drop in and land your first ollie or bunny hop.
