Join us for a COVID-free premium ski experience at Six Flags Great Escape Lodge (Complete indoor water park) in upstate NY. It’s going to be a wild and unforgettable week: skiing, snowboarding, tours, social activities, and extreme sports with friends, along with the most experienced counselors of Camp Kimama.

During this prolonged time of isolation and uncertainty, we have something for you and your children to look forward to. We are thrilled to announce our new COVID-free ski camp, taking place this February in Gore mountain. Up to 30 Kimama campers will spend time together on the mountains learning how to ski (each according to their ski level, suitable for beginners too!). The activities include: ski, snowboard, tours, social programs and extreme sports.

The camp will be held under close supervision of Kimama’s experienced and trusted counselors, together with the local licensed team of ski and snowboard instructors. The camp is open to campers in ages 7-17, but hurry up because the number of spots is limited.

The Program
At Skimama NY there are up to 30 Kimama new and returning campers and 5 staff members. The program consists of four full days of skiing (morning to afternoon) and a day of non ski recreational activities. Every day, after the skiing session is over, campers go back to the hotel, shower, and get ready for Kimama’s social activities – special night programs, an indoor water park, a tour of the nearby village, Kabbalat Shabbat, sports competitions, movie night and much more!

Skimama Staff
The Camp Kimama management and the most experienced counselors from past summers will be joining Skimama. The staff was carefully selected by the Kimama management; These are our finest counselors, and they are sure to give your children an experience of a lifetime. Campers will be supervised by our staff 24 hours a day. Besides being with the campers at the ski instruction during the day, the staff will hold social and educational activities in the evening. During the ski hours, a professional local ski instructor will join.

COVID-free camp
All participants will be required to present proof of a negative COVID test within 3 days of the start of the trip.
The group will remain together as a self-contained unit. Accommodations include a private area of hotel and isolated dining room. In addition, Kimama will maintain our own bus, driver and activity rooms.

The Ski Resort
Our skiing activities will be taking place at Gore mountain ski resort, located in the Adirondacks, NY. The resort has a variety of ski slopes, however, is at the same time small enough to allow for campers’ proper supervision, safety and security.

Ski Levels and Lessons
The campers are divided into three levels (beginners, intermediate, and advanced), separately for skiing and snowboarding activities. Each group will have one ski instructor and at least one Kimama counselor. Our experience has shown that during the week all campers move up at least one level.

Ages
Skimama is great for all campers ages 7-17. Campers are divided into age groups for their social activities. In the ski groups, there might be campers from more than one age group, as the camper’s age doesn’t necessarily indicate their ski level.
