Yes. The double session is our best Summer program. Some campers even stay as many as five sessions. Campers will do laundry and rest and relax in between sessions on our campus at the Salmon River Reserve.
At Mt Hood – We have a large facility at the Salmon River Reserve (two acres of riverfront property) comprised of three houses and recreation facilities. Campers are grouped in by gender and age and may request their roommates. Super nice accommodations include comfortable beds and shared bathroom facilities. Athlete meals are served on-campus.
At Copper Mountain – We have several slopeside condominiums at Copper Mountain Inn Condos in Center Village. Campers are grouped by gender and age and may request their roommates. The condo units are well-furnished and quite comfortable. Campers share bathrooms. The condos include a health club where we do after-ski dryland training and swimming. Breakfast is served at a restaurant just across the main plaza and lunch and dinner are served at the condos.
At Mt. Hood – Meals are served on-campus at the Salmon River Reserve. Lunch is prepared at breakfast and taken up on the ski hill. Dinners are well-rounded with meat and vegetarian options. The food is good, home-cooked, fresh local produce, and all you can eat.
At Copper Mountain – Breakfast is at Jack’s, a Copper Mountain Resort Restaurant at the base of the main lift. Jack’s serves hot, fresh breakfast, or campers can grab breakfast snacks (bars, fruit, etc.) and go. Lunch and dinner are prepared at our condos and like Mt. Hood, the food is exceptional.
All NASC staff are involved in supervision and campers are supervised 24/7.
Yes. Price is included in camp fees if your flights arrive/depart on the allocated arrival/departure days and within our travel window of 10 AM-3 PM.
We accept 30 athletes in each session. Registration is usually full at least one month before each camp session begins.
NASC camps are usually about 60% girls and 40% boys, ranging in age from 8-18. All groups are represented in each session.
Adults are invited to join in the DAY PROGRAM with a minimum of 4 adults required.
All the types! From kids who enjoy skiing and want to improve, to kids who ski daily and race in international competition.
We will provide you with the Camp Directors’ mobile numbers, but as we are involved in so many activities, it is often difficult to connect quickly by phone. As most campers have cell phones, reaching out directly to them is often more efficient. You can always reach the camp office at 303-875-1405 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We realize that you may have reservations about sending your child unescorted on a flight to/from a camp far from home, but it’s actually quite safe and easy for them. We’ve never missed a camper arriving into PDX or DIA over the three decades we’ve been making pickups and we’ve never missed a drop-off either.
Campers arriving by air are met at PDX or DIA on the first day of each session – Arrival Day. They are returned to PDX or DIA on the last day of the session – Departure Day. Please schedule flights for arrival before 3 PM and departure after 10 AM. Other flight times can be accommodated at a cost of $150 per person.
Upon arrival at PDX or DIA, campers should proceed to the baggage carousel for their flight and our representatives will meet them there. Our staff will be identifiable by NASC branding on their jackets/hoodies/shirts and a NASC sign. They will also likely be with other campers with ski equipment.
For children under 13 traveling alone, the airlines provide an unaccompanied minor escort service for a fee. Please call the camp office two days prior to arrival to obtain the name of the person who will be meeting the child at the gate. The airlines require ID for the pickup of unaccompanied minors.
For departures of unaccompanied minors, there will be an additional $100 charge as the airlines require us to remain with the child until boarding and at the gate until after the flight departs. This is often an all-day affair for the person doing the drop-off. Although we wish to provide for the needs of every client, we are not a transportation/escort service and must charge extra to staff this service. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Arrivals or departures on non-scheduled days are not recommended but can be accommodated by special arrangement at a cost of $150.
Please schedule arrival for 4-6 PM on the first day of the session. We’ll have a team meeting the first night of camp at 7 PM to introduce the campers and coaches, and establish the logistics for the camp.
