Ohio Dreams Action Sports Summer Camp offers the perfect summer adventure for kids who want to learn more about extreme sports and train to become a professional one day. Located in Butler, Ohio, the camp features week-long camp sessions that teach different skills for extreme sports. Campers get to spend all day enjoying their sport under the watchful guidance of experts.
The week-long summer camp sessions at Ohio Dreams Action Sports Summer Camp are for children between the ages of 7 and 17. There are eight sessions throughout the summer months, and each session is limited to 100 campers. Keeping the sessions small ensures each camper receives plenty of time to learn with one-on-one training in his or her sport of choice. The camp has a five to one camper to counselor ratio, providing plenty of attention to each camper.
There is also a four-day session for adults to come and have a similar experience.
The main activity is the various extreme sports, including BMX racing and freestyle, skiing, snowboarding, scootering and skateboarding. The camp features 66 acres of activities, including indoor ramps, foam ramps, and trampolines, where campers spend most of their day learning and practicing their sport of choice. Examples of activities include learning how to grind rails over stairs, new tricks on indoor foam, or working on a trampoline.
The campers have sessions where they learn about the sport, and open sessions where they can practice what they have learned. Campers can concentrate on one sport, or they can participate in more than one. If campers are going to participate in more than one sport, they need to bring all equipment with them. The campers are taught by highly trained staff and visiting pros from sponsoring companies in the various sports.
In addition to the sports, the camp also features the famous Slip N’ Fly that is only open to people between the ages of 7 and 17 during camp. This is a long slide and ramp that leads into a pool. It plays a significant role in each session, and it features in the year-end Sports and Music Fest, where people over the age of 18 can play on it.
There is also free time, rest time, and time just to enjoy the pool during the day. Every evening, the campers also participate in a fun activity.
The camp is located in the Mohican forest area in mid-Ohio, providing a beautiful atmosphere in which to stay and play. Campers stay in dorm style lodges. There is also a pro shop on the grounds, so if there are any equipment malfunctions, campers can get replacement parts so they can get right back into the action. There is also an Athlete Lounge that offers refreshments and a cool place to relax and watch videos between sessions.
End of Summer Bash
Every year, Ohio Dream Action Sports opens up the Slip N’ Fly to the public for a legendary bash that draws people from all over. There is music and opportunities to enjoy the Slip N’ Fly, but only for those over the age of 18. It is a fun way to say goodbye to another summer at the camp. This event is the only time the ramp is open to the public.
Ohio Dreams Action Sports Summer Camp offers a great experience filled with fun, adventure, and training. It provides a safe atmosphere to learn, and all staff members have gone through first aid training. Attending a session, or two, will help anyone become a better athlete in his or her chosen sport. For those hoping to one day turn pro, it offers a great opportunity to get one-on-one instruction from the pros to take their talent to the next level.
