The glacier season of summer 2016 kicked off with a bang! In past years, our famous Adult Week has been reserved for the final session of the summer, however this year, we decided to switch things up – Adult Week began our summer of skiing for the first time ever, and what a week it was! Campers came from across the globe to celebrate our 25th anniversary, including Iceland, Kuwait, Japan, Mexico, Australia, the United Arab Emirates, India, and more! Here’s to 25 more…
With camp beginning a week earlier than in past years, our mogul course and terrain park were in better shape than ever, and unusually wintery conditions even allowed for some rare summertime powder! From incredible ski conditions, to loads of fun during the daily activities, to fun-filled evenings at top-notch restaurants throughout Whistler Village, Adult Week was one to remember.
Words can only do so much in describing how much fun session 1 was, so check out the photo recap below, as well as the Adult Week video recap at the bottom to see what you missed!

Adult Week is meant for people to step outside their comfort zone, and a trip to Whistler Bungee definitely helps!

Throughout the week, it was awesome to see new and old friends come together to enjoy all of the adventures camp has to offer. It’s a truly special week in which everyone in attendance is able to set the stresses of life aside, and make the most of their summer! Once again, Adult Week did not disappoint, and we cannot wait for everyone to return next year for just as much fun and adventure!
