Camp Keystone is a fun way for kids to learn how to ski or snowboard at Keystone Resort, mixing lessons in with a wide variety of other activities that keep kids involved and having fun!  Instead of kicking and screaming their way into ski school, your kids will be begging you take them to Camp Keystone this ski season!  Kids who participate can enjoy things like having the same instructor every day, participating in fun kid-friendly activities, and skiing in progressive learning areas.  Kids will be just as excited to jump in the snowy powder as they would be running full speed towards the lake at summer camp!

The Camp Keystone area is located at the bottom of the Mountain House Base Area with a nice variety of terrain grouped in one big area.  Kids start out on the four magic carpets which each progressively step up in difficulty and once they are ready, they move on to the Discovery Chair Lift.   When you book your child for three or more days at camp they are guaranteed to have the same camp 'counselor' each day.  This really helps them get comfortable around their instructor and keep moving forward each day, with the child able to developing more trust in their instructor and confidence in themselves each day.

Other perks of Camp Keystone include skiing with the mountain's mascot, 'Riperoo the Dog', playing around on a grooming machine playground, taking out the mini snowmobiles, skiing through fun adventure zones and participating in the daily 'Theme Days' with themes like 'Safety Day', 'Adventure Day' and 'Fun Facts Day'.  Your kids won't want to go home at the end of the day! has a great selection of properties in the Mountain House Base area at Keystone Resort, where you will be able to walk your kids right to Camp Keystone from your condo!
