How long are the camps?
Our 3*** and 4**** camps are 4 days of coaching over a 5 day window, typically running on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (Wednesday is the usual day off but may be used as a weather day).
The 5***** international camps are 5 days of coaching in a 6 day window (usually with 7 nights of accommodation included). These camps have one day off in the middle somewhere, however this is kept flexible to allow for weather/conditions and energy levels within the group.
What level are the camps?
4**** camps are for aimed at advanced riders. To join these camps you must have been on a 3*** camp previously, or ridden with one of coaches in another capacity. These camps help you take big steps in your riding progression, in a super-positive group culture with other riders looking to push their abilities in specific terrain. You might be progressing on to bigger jumps in the park or working on airing out of the halfpipe. You might be learning to euro carve or get your powder slashes locked in. Your goals can be varied, but try to pick a camp that is focused on the environment you wish to progress in (e.g. steeps). A lot of Level One and Two certified instructors join these camps to help them progress to their next level of certification.
5***** camps are held at international resorts in Japan and France currently. They cater to a wide range of snowboarding abilities. Most of our 5***** camps have multiple group levels, catering for strong-intermediate through to expert riders (although some will be focused just on expert level due to the terrain available). These camps are more guiding-based. We find the best conditions on the day and get a LOT of laps in. These camps are ideal if you want to explore a new resort with top coaches who know it inside and out. If you're an experienced advanced or expert snowboarder, who can ride any terrain from backcountry pow to park jumps, this is for you. If you're a strong intermediate rider who wants to explore a new resort overseas, stay in the same accommodation with the crew and absorb the CAMP3 atmosphere, then it's highly likely we can create a group suitable for you too.

What kind of riding are the camps focused on?
How can you run camps at privately owned resorts like Cardrona?
Why do only some camps include passes and/or accommodation?
What happens if the lifts or resort closes?
In the highly unlikely event that the resort is closed for multiple days in a row and we cannot use an additional at the end of the camp to make up for it, we cannot provide "make up" days later in the season.
