Woodward Camp or Camp Woodward is a sleep away summer camp in Woodward, Pennsylvania, United States. It was founded in 1970 and has become world-renowned for its action sports, gymnastics, and cheer programming. Providing first class facilities, Olympic medalists, and top action sports professionals, Woodward offers a summer experience attracting campers from all over the world.
Named after a small town 35 minutes east of State College, Pennsylvania, Woodward started out as a gymnastics camp bringing in Olympic medalists, college coaches and providing expert training immersed within a summer camp experience. When the US decided to boycott the 1980 Olympic games Woodward Camp expanded its camp programing to include BMX racing. The BMX program quickly grew and the facilities were expanded to include ramps. The word of an action sports facility in central Pennsylvania traveled quickly and skateboarders and aggressive inline skaters were drawn to Woodward as action sports hit the mainstream with the blow up of the X-Games. Using its gymnastics knowledge by including foam pits and resi landings, Woodward offers first class facilities for action sports.
In December 2008, Copper Mountain resort in Colorado opened the first installment of 'Woodward at Copper' with the Cage, a retail store focused on action sports with such features as an indoor skate bowl and the Woodward All Ages Lounge. Woodward at Copper offers winter camp days and week-long residential summer camps, including dry land as well as mountain facilities and training areas.
Woodward opened its first international camp "Woodward Beijing" located in Beijing, China in the summer of 2010.
'FUEL TV Presents Camp Woodward' is a show about Woodward campers and their experience at the Pennsylvania camp. FUEL TV and Woodward partnered to create the show in 2007 and the show's fourth season began airing in February 2011.
