Can I bring mom and dad to camp with me? Absolutely! We have many families who come to camp every summer. We offer two different "family camp" options during summer sessions 1 thru 10. Family camp is ideal for parents who want to participate on the hill, but have other plans for the rest of the day. Call if you have any questions.

Option 1: Coaching Only Program fee is $1,600 per session for both kids and adults. The Coaching Only program only includes the on-hill coaching and their daily lift ticket for each of the 5 days (Monday thru Friday). Lodging, Transportation and Meals are NOT included.

Option 2: The kids do this same Coaching Only program, but also have the option to sign up for meals at camp, which includes the buffet breakfast and buffet dinner meals, but does NOT include Lunch. This breakfast & dinner added on meal program is $175 per session. The other potential add-on is for Afternoon Activities.The afternoon activities add on for Coaching-Only includes all 5 days of activities for $200. *Note our White Water Rafting activity would be an additional $80 that the $200 would NOT cover.

Younger kids, ages 7 or 8, must do the coaching only program and stay with their parents.  **Parents also must ski with their 7 and 8 year olds at least on the first day, to make sure all is okay on the hill and that their kid can handle themselves on their own those remaining 4 days of the session (Tuesday thru Friday).  We don't have facilities or supervision for kids younger than 9 for our afternoon activities. Young kids, ages 7 and 8, must be able to easily ski groomed black runs, load and unload the chair lift by themselves, ski using ski poles, and must understand basic safety concepts on the mountain.


Adult campers must provide their own lodging, with the exception of the "Adults Only" Session at the end of our Summer. For the Adults-Only session, you are allowed to lodge with us or you provide your own.

Lodging options include but are not limited to: the Mt Hood Inn, Collins Lake Resort, Grand Lodges or The Lodge at Government Camp - see below for details.

For those of you that might want to try camping, there are nearby camping areas including: Trillium Lake campground, Still Creek Campground, Frog Lake Campground, Clear Lake Campground, and Timothy Lake Campground. There's also the Mt. Hood Village RV Resort in Oregon.

Transportation: Many families from out of the area, choose to rent a car at the Portland airport and drive themselves around during their week of camp. Having your own car while at camp gives you a little more freedom to come and go on your own schedule.
