You’re never gonna, uh, grow up to be Shaun White, but you can get the same freestyle snowboard instruction he did at Oregon’s Windells eight-day Adult Camps, held all summer long on Mount Hood’s Palmer Glacier. Most participants say they learn more in a week on the hill at Windells than they can floundering in the terrain park all season. Though the air on the glacier will be thick with grommets launching off the camp’s mile-and-a-half of jumps, table-tops, and halfpipes, each session of 22 adults gets its own pro coaches at a 7-to-1 ratio. Adults also bunk down in a separate house equipped with a flat screen, hot tub, pool table, and a fridge for adult beverages. Evenings, feel free to mow down teen campers in a paintball game, or once it’s lights out for the kiddos, you’ll have Windells’ famous 12,000-square foot indoor park—including skate ramps, foam pit and training trampolines—all to yourself. BYO ibuprofen ($1,769).
