DYK?We are 100% private campus for campers, 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. The unique environment allows for the freedom to enjoy activities while maintaining safety and supervision. Windells is the first action sports camp to earn American Camping Association accreditation. This distinction is given to those camps that meet standards set well beyond state and federal guidelines.
All 17-and-under programs are alcohol, drug, tobacco, violence, bully and swear word free.
