Scavenger Hunt Take 3: Who are we? Where are we?

Here it is. The third installment of our Employee Scavenger Hunt. Our staff is amazing. They come from all over the country to live life in Mt. Hood with Windells Camp. Once August starts to slip away, they all eventually have to go back to reality and back to their roots. As winter keeps on trucking, our employees are building parks, taking classes, teaching lessons, and just about everything you can think of to pass the time until summer comes back into our lives. This winter hibernation gives us a perfect opportunity for you guys at home, to find our staff members in their natural habitats! “Who Are We? Where Are We?” will take place once a month all over the country. Each contest will spotlight one of your favorite Windells employees at home in their stomping grounds, and it is your job to find them, snap a photo, and win some swag! Sounds fun right? Let’s see what happens when we try and find one of the many redheads occupying our campus.

Yes, it’s true, Spring Break is almost here. Before we knew it, groundhogs were seeing shadows, Valentine’s being were stamped and sent out, and BAM…March is now only minutes away. Last spring we had unbelievable snow, tons of parks to choose from, and of course, our amazing campus as the home base for all your possible camp needs. Take a peak at spring break 2011, and try to imagine what your photos will look like from spring break 2012. There are three sessions coming up, which one will be your unforgettable vacation?

Winter Photo Contest Winners

It’s Friday! Which means the weekend is only minutes away, but more importantly, we are announcing the photo contest winners today! Thanks for sending all of the awesome pow shots. We enjoyed sifting through them this week in the office. As the air gets colder and the top of Mount Hood gets whiter, we know that our infamous Oregon powder is right around the corner. If you have never experienced a winter out here, we highly recommend it. There is nothing better than knee deep turns through the trees, forgiving landings for those first ever back flip attempts, and all the terrain you could ever ask for. Don’t take our word for it, come see for yourself! Winter Camp is coming up quick, and these lucky winners are getting a head start! So here it goes, drum roll please…..

3rd Place: Eli Frandsen
