Ski camps for kids?

For snow skiers, I know there are some great summer camps like Mt. Hood where they can work on skills. Is there an equivalent for water skiing? Are there certain camps that people love? Our daughter is 7 and loves water skiing. She’s fairly new to slalom but will be doing it a lot this summer. Thinking about next summer and would love some recommendations. She loves alpine racing and would probably love skiing a course. Thanks!

    I went to Cobles when I was around 12 and Loved it, Bennetts is great, you also have Jacks Just outside of Orlando, not sure if they have a min age however.

    Did Coble last year, and it was awesome. Will do it again! My son is going for 2 weeks this year.

    Don’t forget to tip your instructors/counselors at Coble’s!

    I think that the regions have youth development camps each summer. In the West, there were camps in Idaho, Sacramento, and the Bakersfield area this summer. Not sure about other Geos. Our daughter was invited to camp when she signed up for a USA water ski number and started competitions. FWIW.

    I think I’ve noted this before: Chelsea Mills started her path to water skiing while at a traditional summer camp in Maine.

    @Keith_Menard Not without asking her. I know it was in Maine.

    My daughter is at a traditional camp in Maine right now - that’s where she is learning to ski. We got a couple letters recently - one where she was excited to get up on 1 and another where she was working on a course. So
    Much fun!
