We were previously known as the Dave Murray Summer Ski and Snowboard Camp and the Whistler Summer Snowboard Camp. As skiing and snowboarding has developed over the years, so must we. So welcome to Treeline Camps, have a look around and please don't hesitate to contact us for more information! - Luke & Lisa
Our campers get the unique opportunity to train with some of North America's top ski and snowboard coaches in our private summer terrain park, high on Whistler Blackcomb's Horstman Glacier. We offer 1-2 week sessions for Kids (7-18), as well as an Adult's Only session for 19+.
No experience in the terrain park? No problem! If you can link turns and have a desire to learn - we have a program for you! Click here for info on Ability Levels.
The excitement doesn't end when the mountain closes; we pack as much a fun into your evenings as you can handle! Camper vs coach dodgeball, bouncing at the trampoline gym, mini golf tournaments, movie nights, BBQs and even bungee jumping for the adrenaline junkies - and everything is included!
With our hotel accommodation on the doorstep of Whistler Village, restaurant meals, and awesome family atmosphere - Treeline Camps are the place to be this summer!
Here are a few things we feel are important to our campers and their parents.
We only take in 40 campers/session so our duty of care is very much industry leading. You won't be shipping your child off to a camp trying to maximize everything. We run the whole thing so we are very involved, hand pick our staff and manage the finer details that come up.
Small session numbers mean the park is quite. Their won't be loads of kids flying through the park all over the place, this really helps campers concentrate and is great for the learning curve.
We build our park to help our campers and coaches achieve their goals. We have a small, medium and large feature line so tricks can be learnt on a progressive level. We don't have the huge features you see on marketing videos because our camps for the campers not for the pros that come to hang out.
Our coaches are the councilors. We have found that having the coaches at activities, playing dodge ball, coming to dinner etc helps build great rapport for on the hill. It takes a lot of camper/coach trust to get good results so the sooner the rapport can be built the better the coaching product will be. Not to mention the banter is great!
We stay in the hotel with the campers. We rent a hotel room for the 2 kids sessions, it's close to the u12 rooms and our door is always open. We always know what everyone's up too.
Above all else we have an awesome on hill BBQ lunch cooked by us (the owners), We get to talk to everyone and make sure all is well.It may sound like we micro manage every detail but to be honest, when a parent calls for any reason it's nice that we can give the answers, let them know how their kids day was and who they're hanging out with. All without the campers feeling that mom/dad's bugging them.
Last year I followed our head snowboard coach and all round awesome guy Duncan Mainland around the Blackcomb park for a day. You'll never guess what happened next! Continue Reading →
