How we make having fun easy… Summer Camp is a place where adults can unplug from the “real world” and get back to what makes us happy, having fun with our friends. No matter what your goal is as a skier our staff will make sure you exceed your own expectations. Adult campers are placed in specially designed groups with coaches that cater to each individual’s ability and learning style. The facilities on campus and on the mountain are designed to make learning like bowling with bumper pads, it’s so easy to progress that you’ll not only understand how it works but have fun every step of the way. From the foam pit to the super quad 14×14 trampoline to the airbags and our carefully designed parks it would be hard not to progress. Set your goals high and get to camp for the time of your life!

We provide transportation to and from the airport, all daily trips, access to Windells private campus and facilities, full access to our Demo Center, tours of Portland and the local scene, meet and greets with visiting pro athletes, Adults Only excursions, comfortable, private adult camp housing and more. Camp food? Not likely! We eat amazing breakfasts on campus prepared by legendary skateboarder and head chef Tom “Wally” Inouye and our dinners are either specially prepared at the adult house or we dine local at some of the most unique spots around Mt. Hood Oregon.
Adult Housing – Adult campers stay off the Windells Campus in an adult-only house up the road a little bit in a small town called Government Camp. Government camp is a mere 10 minutes from the Mountain and full of good things to eat and drink and activities. The Adult Camper house is away from the kids and is set up to be a comfortable environment for you to relax, put your feet up, and chill. With flat screen TVs, and indoor and outdoor common areas, these Chalets are perfect for some winding down after an adventure full day on the mountain!
All Adult campers fall into our camp policies and regulations and are expected to be respectful of all campers and staff on site.

STAY FOR MULTIPLE SESSIONS
Campers often choose to stay for multiple sessions. During “in-between days,” simply the 2 or 3 days between sessions, campers are fed and housed on campus. In-between campers often take trips to the Oregon Coast, visit Portland, go on skate trips, go white water rafting, or other activities based on weather and personal preferences. An additional cost of $100 per day covers lodging, transportation, food, and entertainment.
“What makes adult camp different? The kids have lights out and you don’t. The coaches are as good at having fun as they are at coaching.”58-year-old Ed Wall Sr.
