After years of planning and building, Camp Woodward Park City will debut its grand opening this December with much anticipation. The Park City community is in for a unique treat as we welcome the fifth Woodward Camp in the US. Starting 50 years ago with its flagship location in Woodward, PA, the Woodward lifestyle has swept the western US with added locations in Tehachapi, CA (outside of LA), Copper, CO, and Tahoe, CA; and that’s exactly what Woodward is… a lifestyle. Woodward has one simple goal: to empower kids to advance in sport through creative expression, technology, music, art, and culture. Whether they’re hosting camps for the next wave of local Olympians or providing easy access to first time skiers, Woodward aims to break down all barriers to getting people out and enjoying life through movement.
Woodward Park City will be a facility to behold, with every inch of the 52,000 ft2 structure thoughtfully designed to be an integral piece to the overall “playground.” For starters, the plaza isn’t just a plaza; every feature of the welcome plaza is designed to lend creativity to the skateboard or Parkour enthusiast. In the winter the stars of the camp are the 22-foot half pipe, slopestyle course, and World Cup certified big air jumps. In the summer the area transforms seamlessly into a mountain biking park with pump tracks and jumps for all abilities. Year-round the center offers a 10,000 ft2 skate park, trampolines, a foam pit, and a state-of-the-art digital media lab to help capture and edit the most memorable moments of action. Locals and visitors alike will be elated to hear that tubing is returning bigger and better than ever with two new magic carpets, plus night skiing will return to Park City once again. Behind all the action, the camp features inspiring sustainability components like solar panels, a living roof, and recycled building materials. Additionally, Woodward Park City will have eight low-income housing units, a restaurant, bar and café.
There’s no shortage of ways to explore everything that Woodward Park City offers. They provide scheduled programming, day and season passes, drop-in sessions, and camps 365 days a year. The park includes features for all ages and abilities with the goal to welcome the entire community. The camp officially opens in November with a grand opening event on December 14. Stay tuned for details, we’ll see you there!
