Summer is officially here and Woodward Copper summer camps are in full swing! Week 1 of summer camp went off with a BANG, with campers enjoying a freshly built snow terrain park, updated skate, scooter, and BMX facilities, improved EDGE Cafe meal options and more. Recaps will be coming out every week all summer long, so be sure to check the blog each week for updates!

Our recaps will always feature some of our favorite photos and videos from each week at camp, and you can also view our larger weekly photo albums over on our Woodward Copper Facebook page. And now, without further ado, let’s see what went down during Woodward Copper Summer Camp Week 1…

Campers were beyond stoked to see a seemingly endless parade of their favorite pros and special guests arriving at summer camp for the week. Snowboard Olympians Cheryl Maas and Sarka Pancochova showed up and put the entire camp on notice: they were here to have fun and shred!

Cheryl and Sarka’s competitive resumes make them great inspirations for aspiring female snowboarders, and they spent tons of time with campers showing how to throw down tricks and perfect technique all while having a great time. In addition to helping practice and train with campers, Cheryl has even been helping Sarka with a little bit of coaching, although we aren’t quite sure about her coaching techniques:

Pipeline Park, the exclusive lift-serviced Summer Camp terrain park, is only one of the many facilities available to Woodward Copper Summer Campers. Camp staff was hard at work in the lead-up to the first week of camp, and we’re excited to see it all come together with campers enjoying themselves on the various snow, cheer and action sports facilities.

The Burton Kilroy Crew arrives at Woodward Copper: Carter Jarvis, Jake Canter, Sy Moran and Hollis Dupre.

Burton Snowboards' Kilroy Crew, comprised of some of snowboardings top young talent, descended on Pipeline Park and laid waste to every hip, table-top, box and rail feature in sight. Coming out swinging on Day 1, Carter Jarvis made it known he was here to send it, stomping a massive double backflip to open his account for the week. Woodward Copper regular Jake Canter threw down his own clean, stylish brand of riding on the various jump and rail features, turning heads with ease. Sy Moran, another Woodward Copper regular, also put on amazing performances for campers and photographers. Rocking what might just become his signature summer outfit—a flowing, all-white shirt and facemask combo that blurs the line between boarder and bandit—Sy took to the skies again and again, clocking serious airtime on the hip and leading a master class in summer park riding. Look out for the Kilroy Crew's full edit filmed at Woodward Copper, dropping later this fall!

The Line Skis and Traveling Circus crew, captained by none other than X-Games Real Ski champion Will Wesson, showed up at camp with a van stacked full of Line and Full Tilt goodies and immediately began dispensing them to any ski camper sending it with a smile on their face. The entire ski contingent of visiting pros at camp was throwing down in the warm Colorado sunshine. While Taylor Brooke-Lundquist sharpened her blades on every rail feature in the park, Andy Parry, Sami Ortileb, Peter Koukov, Eric Olsen and Kevin Salonius alternated between boosting park jumps and high-fiving stoked ski campers.

And very stoked the campers were, no doubt, to be spending a week of their summer skiing an incredible park high up in the Colorado mountains. From beginner skiers to advanced freestylers, campers were laying down impressive performances every day. When it was time to refuel, ski and snowboard campers enjoyed a daily on-snow barbeque with burgers, veggie burgers and brats. On Friday, ski and snowboard campers were joined by campers from every other sport, as the entire camp traveled up to the snow park for a massive end of week barbecue.

Back at The Barn, visiting scooter pro Raymond Warner was whipping camp into a frenzy, jumping his scooter over and off of the biggest ramps and drops he could find. When Raymond was riding and hanging with scooter campers, everyone seemed to be having the time of their lives, cheering as “R-Dub” threw down an entire dictionary worth of tricks, spending half of his airtime upside down.

Raymond Warner never disappoints, throwing down 100% every day during camp. 

History was made this week when Raymond, seemingly ignoring the laws of physics, became the first ever to jump a scooter from the first-floor mega ramp up to land on the second-floor pump track. Anyone who’s ever visited The Barn knows this is a massively ambitious gap to clear. Luckily Raymond documented all his antics on his Raymond Warner YouTube page, where you can view all the R-Dub action from his stay at Woodward Copper.

In addition to riding at The Barn, BMX campers also have access to the new Union Creek BMX park at Woodward Copper, as well as day trips to dirt jumps at Frisco Adventure Park.

On the four-wheeled front, skateboard campers spent the week hanging out with Creature pro Taylor Bingaman. Like any good visitor to camp, Taylor brought tons of gear to give away as well as a giant bag of tricks to keep the young skaters inspired.

Summer campers expect visiting pros to blow minds with incredible performances while at camp, but they may not have known their skateboard coach Derrek Scott was keeping a lifetime of bowl and transition skating experience hidden up his sleeve. When Derrek did take a break from helping campers learn new moves, jaws were dropping all over The Barn as he flowed around the Dickies bowl, taking to the sky and nailing combo after combo.

At the end of a week that felt way too short (time flies when you’re at Woodward), it was time for the Friday Night Awards Ceremonies.
