Default Snowboarding summer camps?

I'm planning for bit of a summer shred already . Has anyone ever been to any of these things? Did you learn much? Have fun? Are they worthwhile? I've just started looking around, hoping for some recommendations. Here's a few I'm looking at...

Whistler Ski, Bike and Snowboard Summer Camp 2012
Adult Snowboard Camp at Windells
What is Adult Camp? - High Cascade Snowboard Site - Mt. Hood, Oregon

At the age of 18 I learned how to get drunk, pass out, snowboard every day, bathe in a hot tub, pass out, get smacked by female pro snowboarders, and learn 2 new tricks at Windells.

A few years ago I spent the summer on the west coast and got to snowboard at Whistler and Mount Hood. Whistler kind of blew during the summer. Mount Hood had much more trails, longer trails and a half pipe.

Whistler is an awesome town and has tons of other things to do. Sorry I can't help you put with the camps because I know nothing about them, but from my experience between the two Mount Hood is a better mountain for summer conditions. I have never been to the third place so I can't give my opinion on it.

That's the second good thing I've heard about Windells. Thanks for the feedback.

I've been up whistler in the summer and there wasn't any snow to be found. Wonder how they manage that. Plenty of mountain bikers though.

I haven't been to the snowboard camp @ Whistler, but I have gone to Whistler for the August long weekend a few times.

After that weekend, it's closed to the public. That's when the camps start.

The camps are actually on Blackcomb because it has a glacier, the snow never melts completely. Or @ least it hasn't in the last few thousand years.

They have a Halfpipe & a shit load of jumps, boxes & rails.
I'm not sure about the camp, buy on the August long weekend, there are a tonne of chicks riding in bikini's.

This is @ Whistler

There's more to life then snowboarding. Learn to golf in the summer.

The golfing in Whistler in the Summer > The Snowboarding in Whistler in the summer.

Interesting fact: More people go to Whistler in the Summer for summer sports then they do in the Winter for winter sports.

^^^Golf in the summer is expensive. Golf in the winter when the hill is frozen solid is where it's at.
