DYK? Our private campus is open only to campers, parents, staff and invited guests


Windells’ mission is to provide a fun, safe learning environment for all campers to unleash their full potential regardless of age, gender, race or ability.


Our 53 acre private campus in the heart of Mt. Hood is just 45 minutes east of Portland, Oregon. Our property allows for the freedom to enjoy activities while maintaining safety and supervision standards set well beyond state and federal guidelines.

All youth camp programs are alcohol, drug, tobacco, violence, bully and swear word free.


Day Camp is available to campers ages 9 & up
Overnight Youth Camp is available to campers ages 8 to 20, and Overnight Adult Camp is available to campers 21 and up.

ALL ABILITIES are welcome!

  • Windells staff are trained in American Red Cross First Aid and CPR
  • Windells coaches receive training by the American Association of Snowboard Instructors
  • A Registered Nurse is on campus and on duty 24-hours a day


Employees are screened thoroughly for a solid educational background, professional experience with children and teenagers, and for the personalities and skills appropriate to Windells goals and objectives.

All staff members attend mandatory training two weeks prior to camper arrival. Training time covers leadership, behavior and discipline protocol, conflict resolution, emergency procedures and all additional camp policies and procedures.


YOUTH (20 & younger)
Cabins are grouped by age and number of campers, and have bunk beds, kitchenettes, full bathrooms, common areas, TV, VCR and DVD players. Cabins are assigned a live-in counselor whose number one priority from sunrise to sunset is creating a safe and fun environment for kids.

Accommodations are separate from campers 20 and under. Windells Adult Camp is NOW taking place in Government Camp, a unique little town with plenty of restaurants and fun places to go AND it’s closer to the Mountain! Adult Camp creates camaraderie through a variety of social settings and events. Adults have tons of activities schedules outside of the camp program like sushi night in Portland, and late night skate sessions just for the adults.
