What’s Up @WindellsCamp: 10/1

Crisp mornings, earth tones, and Halloween decor are indications that autumn has arrived. It’s what you would expect on October 1st, but what you wouldn’t expect is that at Windells we are still snowboarding, skiing, and skateboarding everyday. How? Windells Academy.

_DSC3664_web

Currently twenty students are enrolled in a fully accredited and competitive academic school program, while simultaneously riding their prospective shred tools of choice. Mt. Hood’s Palmer Glacier has provided sufficient snow in association with a beautiful PNW indian summer that has allowed our fall park to be nothing short of exceptional. The same fair weather patterns have offered ideal skateboarding conditions that have allowed skateboard students to tour a multitude of different skateparks in Oregon and Washington. Studying and a top notch education is our first priority at Windells Academy, but we don’t deny that our action sport extracurriculars are equally important.

Why Windells? 9/24

Every so often we at Windells like to take a break from the action and credit all the programs and persons that  collaborate to make Windells the premier action sports camp. Obviously, campers are going to clamor and clap about their time at ski/snowboard/skateboard camp, so we asked two times Windells camper Miles Bibelheimer’s mother, “Why Windells?”

image

Camper Miles Bibelhiemer is serious about zombie dodgeball because the Walking Dead is not something is no laughing matter.

“We have sent our ten year old son, Miles, to Windells two years in a row and have had nothing but great experiences.  Windells’ staff is very professional and our family has been more than impressed by their follow-thru and personal attention to Miles.  Among all of the campers, they seem to know who Miles is when we call from California to check on him.  We were very concerned about Miles flying alone for the first time in order to attend Windells but the staff was very organized and the experience was smooth for both Miles and me, as the worried parent. Next summer, we plan to go to Hawaii on a family trip and Miles has been given notice that he may not get to go Windells; he is now trying to bail on Hawaii to head to skate camp!  Top notch!” -Andrea Bibelheimer

 

 

Regram & Remember 9/22:

What’s Up @WindellsCamp 9/18: Fall Park and Academy begin

Last Monday was the fall semester’s start for the Windells Academy 14’/15′; It also was the curtains open for the ONLY Fall Park open in North America. The Fall Park and the Academy are synonymous with one another, and yet both unbelievable feats on their own. It is a place for the diehards, home for the Olympians-to-be and the schoolyard for students with a dream. Check out a few images that explain What’s Up @WindellsCamp.
