Summer Camps

There are a host of summer camps available in places like Mt. Hood and Europe. 

The Southeastern Alpine Race Camp at Mt. Hood (flyer attached) is a camp in its eighth year of operation, run by a group of dedicated volunteers as well as Camp Director, Sara Beeken, and Head Coach, Thea Young. Our goal is to provide affordable, quality, elite ski race training to southeastern athletes.  SARC runs for 2 sessions each summer and campers have the option to sign up for either or both of the weeks.
