Here at Windells we’re always looking to push the limits into new realms. BMX and Freeride are starting to get big now, but we didn’t wait for the fad. We’ve been pedaling since way before it was cool.

We recently made history by signing the Diamond Back BMX Pro Team; welcoming Nate Berkeimer, Nicholi Rogatkin, Darin Read, Robbie Wright and Diogo Cannina to the Windells Family.

In the last year we’ve partnered with the Northwest School of Freeride to provide the world’s premier BMX and Freeride experience. Check it out at http://NWSOF.com

Parents Answer, “Why Windells?”

The holidays are a time to make memories and enjoy family. At Windells Camp we think of all our campers and families as extended family, so we thought the holidays are the perfect time to ask them, “Why Windells?” Enjoy a quick read through some of our parent testimonials!

“We LOVE WINDELLS!!! This was Chris’s third summer at camp and he will definitely be back this summer and many more to come. It is the highlight of his year. From the moment he gets home until he packs his bags for the next year, he talks about Windells! He proudly sports all his Windells gear and loves to spread the word to anyone who will listen to him or watch his videos from camp. He especially enjoyed getting to know you this past summer and his awesome coach Tucker! Although he competes all winter , and probably rides almost everyday, he learns more in one week at Windells then he does in a whole season here in Michigan. He has also made many friends that we love running into at competions from all over the country. Thanks again to everyone at Windells!”
– KC Baxter
“Ryan thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of Windells Camp from the accommodations to the lunches being served to the varied activities he participated in!  Of course, he had the most fun on the slopes, polishing up his regular snowboarding skills as well as learning new tricks from the awesome staff!  The staff was always patient with him, especially Nick Visconti:  Nick was careful to reinforce what Ryan was learning with positive feedback and always had a good attitude when answering questions!  Ryan enjoyed Nick’s company and the camp so much, he has talked about becoming a Windells Camp Counselor himself one day! And as a parent, the Camper and Travel Accounts were a life saver and couldn’t have been easier to use!
Highly recommend this camp!”
– Susan Mallahan
“I wanted to share with you my sons experience at Windells. Last year was his second year attending Windells summer sessions. It is hands down the best camp he has ever gone to! In fact, each year he goes, he adds another week. He is hoping to go for three weeks this year! I can’t say enough good things about it and we have spread the word on the East Coast!
He will definitely see you this summer!”
– Deb Joy

School is not the only thing back in session, so is weekend ‘Open Skate‘ at Windells Camp. Our private facilities’ red light is turning to a green light as we are opening for all skateboarders to do what skateboarders do, skate and destroy. If you have not skated at Windells all you need to know is that a helmet, a waiver, and a small deposit (TBA) grants you access to about 100,000 sq ft. of 4-wheel friendly terrain. If you haven’t ripped with us or visited one of our many Skate, Snowboarding, Ski or BMX camps, here is an insider’s guide to our private skatepark.
