Camelback Mountain Resort Hosts Adaptive Camp for Kids

Week Culminates with Diana Golden Race
Tannersville, PA - Camelback Mountain Resort is hosting the 17th Annual Adaptive Camp for 5-18 year olds with physical disabilities February 1nd to 5th. This is a fun sports camp for children who want to learn how to ski or want to improve their skills. The camp includes five days of ski lessons with passionate, fun-loving instructors, as well as a chance to bond with other kids that share their passion for skiing.

"Our partnership with the Pennsylvania Center for Adapted Sports is wonderful because it helps make snowsports possible for everyone," said Charles Blier, General Manager/Executive Vice President at Camelback Mountain Resort. "This gives kids with disabilities a great opportunity to learn a new sport or improve their skills; and most importantly, they can meet new friends." continued Blier.

At the conclusion of camp, the campers will be prepared to race in the Diana Golden Race Series held on Saturday, February 5th on Raceway. This gives each child the opportunity to challenge him/herself while having fun!

The Diana Golden Series is an introductory alpine ski racing series for children and adults of all ages with physical disabilities. The races are two run GS courses on a NASTAR style course. These races are the first step towards making the Paralympics.
