BEND—Come join the best skiers in North America for a 40-year tradition of late spring skiing at Mt. Bachelor.  This year, Bend Camp will have two blocks of camps: June 8-13 with clubs and teams from Idaho and Colorado and the second block is for athletes with school ending later in June and will run from June 18-22.   Camps are available for juniors age 12-18 years, youth age 8-11 years and masters.  Campers will learn from the best athletes in Bend with daily on-snow sessions. The coaching staff includes three-time Olympian and World Cup medalist Torin Koos, two-time Olympian and five-time National Champion Lars Flora, 2010 Swedish Team member Kristina Strandberg, three-time Olympian Dan Simoneau and former U.S. Olympic Committee sport physiologist and long-time ski coach Tim Gibbons.

•       Whitewater raft trip

•       Camp t-shirt

•       BBQ and fun awards

PRICE: Youth (age 8-11 years) – $100, (June 18-22, morning ski only)

The camp will be a mix of on-snow training, dryland training and a fun, social atmosphere. Junior athletes will have an opportunity to learn from the coaching staff both on and off the snow.  Bend camps have been a fixture of skiing in the west for many years.

“Bend Camp is just about as good as it gets,” says Torin Koos. “Back in the day I vividly remember skipping the last days of the school year and completing my education on the ski trails of Mt. Bachelor. I’m sure the attendees will learn lots, and have a hell of a good time doing it. After camp, get ready for a few of your conversations to start out, ‘There was this one time at Bend Camp…”

Lars Flora adds “Growing up in Oregon, Bend Camp was a key moment in my development.  It provided great on snow training in an exciting and fun environment.  Back then a few US Olympians were around training at Mt. B and Dennis Oliphant was showing us the “Sun Country Tours Beaver Slide into the Deschutes.”
