Following the Scooter Camp hosted at Woodward in Tehachapi, CA back in February, I've received a lot of feedback from parents and kids asking about other scooter camps through the country. I recently heard about this week-long scooter camp hosted at the Woodward Camp in Lake Owen, Wisconsin later this summer. The really exciting thing about this camp is that Woodward's Lake Owen Camp is promoting in on their own website. In fact, they even have a full section of the site devoted to their scooter program, which means that our sport is really starting to get some well-deserved recognition.
From the photos on the facilities page, it looks like the camp is nestled in the woods, which should provide for some nice shade from the summer sun. I couldn't find any scootering footage from Lake Owen, but I did find this BMX video from the camp. It looks like a fun time and they have a foam pit and I think I saw a resi-pad in the video. Also, if you look closely, you'll see a reference to Rad. :) (...and if you have any idea what I'm talking about, then you're awesome!)
The Scooter Camp hosted at Woodward's Lake Owen Camp runs from July 29th through August 4th. Scooter, helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads are required. According to the Lake Owen Dates & Rates page, the cost for this camp is $895.00. Given the popularity of the Tehachapi camp in February, I highly recommend that you register as soon as possible if you plan to attend this camp. You can register here: Camp Registration.
