Yo shred dogs take notice!

Spring Break is here and it’s JumpCamp time again. After a successful first session, JumpCamp is back for five more shred sessions through Spring Break and into the end of March packed with booters, jibs, barbecue, tunes and prizes.

JumpCamp is an all ages and abilities snowboard camp on Forbidden Plateau, the birthplace of Vancouver Island snowboarding. JumpCamp is a registered non-profit organization that supports the youth and works alongside companies with the same ideals. JumpCamp is for snowboarders who want to progress their skills, especially in the park and backcountry.

All camps run from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and include professional instruction, prizes for everybody from the sponsors, barbecue, demo boards to test out and a ratio of one coach to every five campers. The camps are open to all boarders and helmets are mandatory.

From the beginner to the experienced, JumpCamp will help sharpen your freestyle skills on a personal one-on-one level.

“No matter what your skill level is,” said coach Patrick Kitto. “There’s always room for improvement and JumpCamp is the place to do it.”

Each camper will become a much stronger rider during this shred clinic.

The camp cost is $125 and includes passes, professional instruction in the private JumpCamp park, on mountain lunch and barbecue both days and prize giveaways from our sponsors.

There is limited space available so register early. Registration must be done prior to the camp.

Info and registration is available at Onethirtythree board shop, online at www.jumpcamp.com or by phoning the JumpCamp headquarters at (250) 871-6836.

So if you’re looking to improve your snowboard skills get your registration in and see what a session at JumpCamp can do for you.
