Built on a Tradition of Excellence

Development Program/Camps

The Alpine Development Program at Stratton Mountain School is comprised of the Stratton Mini-Camp Series and the SMS Development Camps. These programs are intended for U10–U16 ski racers who are seeking to supplement their training. Each of these programs introduces athletes to a full-time ski academy experience and allows young racers to take advantage of the vast resources of one of the top ski academies in the country. Please contact Jim Sullivan for additional information.


Development Camps

Stratton Mountain School’s Development Camps are open to U12–U16 racers and offer young racers the opportunity to experience ski academy coaching and training. Athletes engage in extensive SL and GS gate training, skill development through drills, video analysis, and tech talks. SMS Development Camps are open to any racer and are scheduled throughout the year from early season through spring, and finally, the summer. These are 3-5 day sessions and longer summer camps at various locations, intended to provide young racers with extra training and an introduction to the SMS experience.

SMS High Performance Adventure Camp

The 2020 High Performance Adventure Camp is scheduled to take place between July 26 and July 31 at the Stratton Mountain School campus, and will provide a fun week of conditioning, education, field games, and adventures in the mountains of Southern Vermont. With the COVID pandemic, we are being mindful for the safety of both the athletes and the staff. We are currently willing to take registrations and will later set a go or no-go date for the camp.

Mornings will be reserved for circuit training and education at Stratton Mountain School’s US Ski and Snowboard High-Performance Center. This will help athletes develop strength, agility, and endurance in every part of the body. During this time campers will participate in physical testing, the results of which will be utilized to develop an individualized program for each athlete to follow throughout the remainder of the summer and fall. Afternoons will focus on fun, with adventures including hiking, swimming, and mountain biking planned alongside visits to a ropes course and alpine slide. Campers will also enjoy daily games on the Stratton Mountain School’s Luckenbill Field. 

This year, the camp will be restricted to day campers only and campers should plan to arrive on campus by 9 a.m. each morning. Activities will begin at 9:15 a.m. and continue until 5 p.m. with lunch served on campus daily. On Friday, July 31st, the morning will proceed as usual however, campers should plan to be picked up at 1 p.m. following lunch and a camp wrap-up session.
