Overview: Mt. Hood’s most continuous and longest-running summer ski camp: a 41-year tradition of ski racing excellence with world-class facilities, coaching and training facilities. Mt. Hood Summer Ski Camps, Inc., is Oregon’s only ski racing camp licensed and bonded as a State of Oregon “Youth Organizational Camp,” permitted under the United States Forest Service, and insured, bonded, and registered as a guide and outfitter under the State of Oregon Marine Board. We have been running the premier afternoon activities program in the Mt. Hood area longer than any other camp and have developed and maintained quality programs for athletes. We have a private campus five miles from Government Camp, which promotes the safety of your athlete while allowing the personal freedom on campus to be kids. Everyone gets better here! We run camps year-round. We video twice a day. We have operated in the same location since 1979. We own all of our facilities; two lodges, 13 dorm rooms, commercial kitchen, great tuning room, all on 12 acres 5 miles outside of town. We are not hotel rats. We have a dedicated counselor staff to help campers fit in starting on the first day.
We have the best coaches, best housing and the most experienced staff of anyone on Mt Hood. We are also the oldest and most experienced camp operating on Mt Hood.
