Okemo Mountain School offers a variety of camp opportunities for alpine, freestyle and snowboard athletes so they are ready and prepared to compete at their highest level during the competition season. OMS offers a very low athlete to coach ratio (typically less than 5:1) so that each athlete receives a lot of individualized instruction and attention. This offers our student-athletes innumerable opportunities for improvement in athletics, academics, and personal growth. All OMS student-athletes should take advantage of the many camp options to grow athletically year round.

Upcoming OMS Camp Dates
The Annual OMS Holiday Hammer Camp is open to U10 - U19 alpine ski racing athletes who participated in a U10-U19 program last winter. The camp provides an opportunity for athletes to be on snow for a lengthy period of consistent, intensive training and exposes them to life at a winter sports academy.
Late January/Early February 2018: A mid-season on-snow camp to provide a boost to athletes training! The moguls and parks are all in prime shape at this time and athletes take advantage of a long, intense training block to make improvements.
The STG Camp is our Freestyle specific camp. At least 75% of the time will be spent in the parks and pipe dialing in technical tricks on rails, boxes and jumps and aerial maneuvers and rad grabs in the pipe. This is a great time to join us as the Okemo parks are always in tip-top shape!
The Annual OMS Valentine Victory Camp is open to U10 - U19 alpine ski racing athletes. The camp provides an opportunity for athletes to be on snow for a lengthy period of consistent, intensive training and exposes them to life at a winter sports academy.
The freestyle athletes will have the opportunity to participate in several days of water ramp and trampoline training at the world class facility in Lake Placid with the OMS/Okemo coaches.
We are happy to announce the return of a Mount Hood Camp for all our Okemo athletes—alpine racing, snowboard and freestyle athletes! We will travel to Oregon to train on Mount Hood’s Palmer Glacier – one of the most popular summer training venues in the world.
In Their Own Words
"I think that doing camps in the summer really benefits my skiing. We are able to do so many more activities than you can in the winter, along with skiing. It is so much fun to travel and experience new things. Hiking, and swimming are some of my favorite things to do at the summer camps. I also have made many great friendships at OMS summer camps!"
-- ERIN KELLEHER, 8TH GRADE
"I really like the opportunities that summer camps provide to work on the fundamentals and the small but important aspects of skiing, things that are hard to work on during mid-winter, the height of the competition season. It's also really fun to explore a new ski mountain, especially during the summer when we haven't been skiing in a couple of months. The activities that we did in the afternoon were great, things like mountain biking, hiking and whitewater rafting, and I loved doing these things around Oregon, where I had never been before."
-- CAROLINE DE BUY WENNIGER, 11TH GRADE
"I loved the Mt. Hood camp because it was very fun and I also improved my skiing a lot. I learned how to pick and maintain a better line on the race course. When we weren't skiing we had a lot of fun especially during the white water rafting trip."
-- RYAN THOMSON
It is easy to see the exciting opportunities OMS will give you, such as traveling around the world and skiing everyday. But there is so much more to OMS. I learned what it means to follow your dreams, how continue to grow after successes, and how to change after failure. If I could repeat my time at OMS I would do so in heart beat.
