JumpCamp concludes another successful season of shredding

Another shred season is over and JumpCamp has one more beauty for the books.

“It was an amazing season for weather,” said coach Patrick Kitto. “We had more powder than ever and conditions were totally awesome for JumpCamp! Mother Nature really came through for us, especially after last year’s lack of snow.”

JumpCamp is a snowboard camp for snowboarders of all ages and abilities who want to progress their skills, especially in the park and backcountry. This year JumpCamp changed things up a bit and took the camps to Manning Park and Mount Washington resorts.

“All our campers loved the new setup and really pushed the pace during JumpCamp sessions. It’s always amazing to see them progress and improve their skills,” added Kitto.

“Thanks to everyone at Mount Washington for all the hospitality.”

Still going strong after over a decade, JumpCamp would like to give a big thanks to all the campers over the years, coaches and especially the local sponsors; Onethirtythree, RK Designs, Thrifty Foods, Yummies & Gyros, Boardwalk, Comox Valley Boxing Club, Play’N’Trade, The White Whale, Dodge City Cycles, Kindred snowboards and EpicBoardSkins for their continued support over the years.

“These guys are very important to the success of JumpCamp,” Kitto added. “Support companies that support snowboarding.”
