Whistler Summer camp options - Treeline or Camp of Champions

I searched the forum, and I didn't seen any details about Treeline Camp or a comparison with Camp of Champions. I'm looking to attend one of them this summer in Whistler, and I'm hoping for some feedback.

Here's my interests:

-I'm in my upper 30s. Treeline has an adult week, CoC doesn't. I could hang with younger people if the overall park/learning was better, but I'm wondering if many "old" people go to CoC
-Quality Coaching is important, and I'm planning on working hard with lots of laps. I don't care how famous the coach is, but how well they can teach me.
-My priorities are 360s (just starting them on tabletop/gap jumps), maybe 540s, wildcats, tamedogs, boardslides.
-I don't need the biggest jumps, but a nice variety of small and medium ones (maybe starting large ones), and rails would be nice. Unless I'm missing something, Treeline's park looks more limited from videos.
-Trampoline training for spin and flip practices
-Demo boards are nice to try a variety of boards and not have to take a couple options with me. I know CoC has this with my favorite brands. Would they let people at Treeline demo boards?

Any experiences or input on either of these camps would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I've never done a summer camp but have done a bit or research, so my info is opinion not hands on.

I'm not sure about the qualifications of coaches, however I think you'd get higher level participants in CoC.

I think treeline has an adult class becuase lots of older riders that aren't as confident/comfortable, don't want to be grouped with a bunch of young hooligans that are stomping 7's, back flips and other advanced level tricks. Or just want to be grouped with riders that are of closer age.

If you ride park lots, regardless of where you ride, you probably know what the typical age range is. -30 deff out number +30 by a considerable margin.

FYI: I know you can buy a day pass to ride the glacier in the summer. If you're around maybe you can head up for a day and try to casually ride by one of the groups and get a feel for what each are like.

I wish I was closer, but my only chance to go there will be for the camp. I appreciate the tips though.

Hood does look very fun, but I'll be up in BC this Summer, and these are the two I'm narrowing in on at Whistler. Thanks

I think I would do Treeline.

I am currently doing Pro-ride in Whistler now and a few of the coaches will be teaching for Treeline in the summer.

Duncan Mainland will be the head coach for Treeline and you cant ask for a better coach. Message me if you have any questions.

I went to CoC, last summer. I am 32. I went with some buddies so it wasn't weird for me lol. There were only 2 others over 20 at the camp besides me and my buddies.

Don't be intimidated by the videos, the vast majority of people there are not good. The videos mostly show people who are pros.

If you decide to go there, ask for Robyn for a coach, he is very analytical and is one of the older coaches and will be around your age.

Did they have boards that you can demo for the whole week? I like the idea of it, but I'm wondering if there are restrictions or limitations to that. Thanks

Know anyone who has done this one? I've always thought it looked pretty fun. I'm considering and my ameritrade account is finally starting to bounce back a bit.

I didn't see anything like that, but i wasn't really interested in that. I know they will send you a free board if you register early. NOW bindings had a demo tent.
