Parents! This page is for YOU!


Kids that come to our camp are well supervised.  MHSSC provides a 8:1 camper to coach ratio on the mountain when they are training (or often times fewer than 8 kids in a group). After kids get off the mountain, they are required to attend afternoon activities, which are supervised by coaches, counselors and/or CIT's (counselors in training).  Every evening there's an all-camp meeting, run by the counselors, where they discuss the events of the day and talk about the program for the following day. Kids of the same sex and same age range bunk together in one of the dorm-style bunk rooms. 

All of our bus drivers have CDL's (Commerical Drivers License) and have been background checked, plus they are randomly drug screened.

CAMP RULES: We rely on a set of important rules to keep kids out of trouble and having a quality experience at camp. These include the following:
1. No drugs or alcohol
2. No Tobacco use
3. No theft
4. No vandalism
5. No leaving the camp boundaries
6. Bed time is 9:45pm


What if my child is injured at camp? More than anything, we try to keep your kids safe. Unfortunately, injuries sometimes happen in action sports. Parents or legal guardians will be contacted as soon as possible in the event of a medical emergency. If your child is injured on the slopes, the first response is from Timberline ski patrol. A camp representative will meet the injured camper in the ski patrol room to hear the patroller’s injury assessment. If the injury is a minor one, MHSSC will transport the camper to a treatment center in a camp vehicle. If the injury on the slopes is very serious, the camper will be transported by ambulance or Life Flight. If a camper is unable to participate in camp activities following the injury, we will contact parents or guardians to arrange early transport home. Dr. Grise, our local physician, is 20 minutes from campus and is available for emergency visits Monday-Friday, 8am to 5pm. Otherwise, campers are transported to Mt. Hood Medical Center in Gresham, a 50-minute drive. 

When kids sign up for camp, they are required to fill out a medical information/insurance form. Copies of this form are also given to the ski patrol department at Timberline Lodge at the beginning of each session, so they have the necessary information for each of our campers that may be needed in a given situation.
