11 Reasons to Send Your Child to Camp
1. It's real life
Not texting, Facebooking, MySpacing, Facespacing, Twitter tweeting or Wonky Wonking. The opportunity to interact in non-Internet, supportive, safe, face-to-face social environments among one’s peers is practically invaluable in today’s world.

Whether your child comes to camp by themself or with a pal – we guarantee they’ll connect with amazing campers & staff from around the country who they’ll consider some of their best friends.

Across America there are 10 million campers a year! Going to summer camp is a long-standing American tradition. We specialize in snowboarding, but we also squeeze in as many traditional camp themes as posslibe.... things like camp fires, s'mores, swimming, and so many other little things you just can't capture in words. Allow your child access to healthy developmental risks in a safe and nurturing environmnet.

Experiencing a new environment, interacting with new people and putting oneself out there makes one more dynamic and ready for what life has in store.

The beauty of our sport is that improving one’s skills is a series of setting and obtaining small goals to get to where they want to be. This translates to all aspects of life.

From the airplane journey to Oregon, to the 8-days spent out of the nest, your child's time at HCSC is a great opportunity to foster a sense of independence in a safe supportive environment.
8. It’s a great reward

Being outdoors in the Mt. Hood National Forest snowboarding, mt. biking, breathing fresh air, playing, living, and loving life feels good from the soles of their feet to the feet of their soul.

People need passions – they frame out our lives and get us excited. To many campers, snowboarding is more than just a recreation. At HCSC we excel in helping this passion begin, grow and abound.
