Sam Jackenthal and Woodward

As Sam used to say, “There are only two things in life we can control, our attitude and our activity.” Woodward taught Sam how to elevate both.

Live Like Sam exists to honor the legacy of Sam Jackenthal, a former Woodward camper who went on to become a world-class, up-and-coming professional freestyle skier. Sam was also a top-ranked international inline skater, a skill he honed while attending camp at Woodward West. Sam’s family maintains that visiting Woodward had a huge effect on their young athlete, turning him into a young man that exemplified leadership, positivity, and creative personal progression. Sam passed away when he was 16 years old in 2015 from injuries suffered in a skiing training accident in Australia.

The Sam Jackenthal Fund has partnered with Woodward to honor Sam’s memory by making one young athlete’s dreams come true with a week of summer camp at Woodward West.
