Founded in 1988 by nine time National Champion and 2 time Vice World Champion snowboarder Tim Windell, Windell's has been a world leader in action sports for the past two decades. The camp's goal is to not only improve kids' skills on the slopes and on the street, but also create a fun and safe place for kids to creatively express themselves through sports. From building permanent half-pipes, cheese wedge jumps to creating new moves and fighting scoring regulations in competitions, Windell's has been a pioneer in action sports. Windell's is also the world's only privately owned campus and features a permanent, year round half-pipe and ski runs as well as BMX dirt bike paths, indoor skate park with foam pit and on-site housing and accommodations for campers. For those who have been there, Windell's is known as the funnest place on earth.
