Skiing & Snowboarding Camps 2013With freezing temperatures in Vancouver for the next couple of days, it’s that time of the year to think about activities for our kids and ourselves for the upcoming (already started by many) Christmas Season. As usual, Kids Camps Canada is aiming to make your work easier by giving you a quick overview and links to the 3 North Shore Mountains offering Skiing & Snowboarding Camps. 

Mount Seymour Ski and Snowboard Camps

After taking 3rd place last year, Mount Seymour has been awarded the 2nd. best terrain park in Western Canada by the SBC Resort Guide Editors Choice Awards 2013-2014, just behind Whistler Blackcomb.  Wow, this family operated local mountain is becoming a leader in freestyle skiing and snowboarding in the West.

As if this wasn’t incentive enough, they offer FREE SKI AND SNOWBOARD  ON YOUR BIRTHDAY, during the ski season!

For Skiing or Snowboarding  Camps, choose from half days Mountain Riders Camp for kids 7 to 14  or full days  Day Riders Camps for kids 9 to 14. While the kids are on their lessons, parents can take advantage and register for an Adult Camp, a one and a half hour that focus on developing ski and snowboard skills.
