Summer Camp Week 3 at Woodward Copper was off the charts! It was an extra special week at Woodward celebrating International Go Skateboarding Day on June 21st. Campers were getting their skate on at The Barn and various parks around Colorado, while up on snow at Copper Mountain ski and snowboard campers were taking laps with their heros. Red Gerard, Sy Moran, Greg Kennagh, Luke Winkleman and the Burton Snowboards crew kept the stoke level high by hucking huge tricks and chucking out prizes.

On the Freeski side, visiting pro Keegan Kilbride landed on the injured list just prior to camp start and was forced to spend the week spreading good vibes rather than skiing. Luckily Keegan called in some backup from freeski pros Jaron Stadler, Pat Goodnough, Taylor Seaton and Keri Herman to keep the campers pumped for every session. Lupe Hagearty was also on location to connect with campers while throwing down in Pipeline Park.

Skate campers were whipped into a full froth on Wednesday, June 21st during International Go Skateboarding Day. This day was all about our 4-wheeled friends and campers could be found sliding and grinding everything in sight. Skate groups took sessions in the Woodward Copper Barn, outside at Woodward Copper’s new “Barnyard” skatepark, and at several concrete parks within striking distance of camp. The Dickies Skate Olympics gave campers the chance to have a friendly competition throughout the week, with teams and individuals completing challenges and collecting points to win prizes and the honor of holding the Dickies Skate Olympics title.
