Week 7 was a summer blockbuster with scooter superstar Cody Flom arriving at Woodward Copper. Cheer special guest Bianca Treger helped cheer campers dial in their routines, and skate pro Taylor McClung rocked the Barn street course and outdoor park for skate campers. Up at Pipeline Park, ski and snowboard camp were fully going off with pro skier Lupe Hagearty and a huge crew of visiting pro snowboarders. Thanks to Arbor Snowboards, Flux Bindings, Sandbox Helmets and 686, this week’s snowboard pros included Scotty Vine, Mary Rand, Melissa Evans, Erik Leon, Frank April, Mike Liddle, Benji Farrow, Brett Esser, Chase Blackwell, Patrick McCarthy and more!
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. Ready to drop in? Read on to see all the action for Woodward Copper Summer Camp Week 7!
Snowboard campers had the privilege of riding with an absolutely stacked cast of visiting pros during week 7. Arbor pro team riders Scotty Vine, Mike Liddle, Erik Leon, Jared McDaniel and Mary Rand were soaking up the sun and enjoying the perfect park setup at Copper Mountain. Scotty and the crew combined fun with a little fitness during the Arbor, Flux and Sandbox Planking Contest, where campers competed planking in the summer snow for some huge prizes.
We’ve always appreciated Scotty Vine for being a consistent helmet wearer, and we think it’s a great example for campers at Woodward. All campers and staff are required to wear helmets during any sports activities, however visiting pros over age 18 are allowed to make the choice. We’re glad Scotty is setting a rad example for the kids, and he spent tons of time during the week helping campers dial in tricks and protecting lids by handing out brand new Sandbox helmets.
Pedal to the metal all week long, the 686 crew was in the house including Chase Blackwell, Forrest Burki, Benji Farrow and 686 TM / shredder Pat McCarthy. Every member of the 686 team was absolutely going off, including Chase Blackwell styling for the cameras and Benji Farrow dropping some double rotators on July 20th for “720 Day”.
It was hard to miss Lupe Hagearty at ski camp, because he is easily one of the most stoked and enthusiastic pros to visit Woodward Copper. When it comes to riding with Lupe, you just can’t help but get excited. In addition to dropping line after line of smooth tricks, and getting a little goofy with the campers, Lupe proceeded to award ski campers with tons of gear from his sponsors including Planks.
Scooter campers were over the moon to spend the week with scooter pro Cody Flom. Cody is famous among the scooter crowd and more than one camper was starstruck after meeting Cody and watching him ride. From the bowl to the pump track to the halfpipe, Cody conquered every Skatelite surface in The Barn and all around camp. Look out for more from Cody’s visit to Woodward Copper coming to woodwardtv.com and @woodwardscooter soon!
At The Barn springfloor and foam pits, Cheer special guest Bianca Treger spent the week coaching campers on everything from lifts to tumbling to dance routines. The integration of training tools like foam pits and mats into spring floor exercise is an essential tool to help increase safety and speed in progressions. Bianca and Cheer Coach Emily brought the individual cheer campers together to work as a team, fully prepared and ready to rock for the Friday Night Talent Show!
BMX campers were treated to another week with the always entertaining Coach Juca. In between shredding with campers and coaching them through trick progressions, Juca is always keen to drop into the bowl for a couple airs, or just to strike a pose! Backing up skate coaches was also Taylor McClung, a stylish street skater who could school the campers on any flip trick they ever wanted to know!
After another week that whipped by faster than Cody Flom’s scooter, it was time for the Friday Night Awards Ceremony at the EDGE. Although every camper contributes in their own way to make camp awesome, a select few campers are recognized each week for their positive attitude, support of campers and staff, and progress during the week with the Powerade Power Through Awards, YUP!
