When summer's hot sun returns and Deer Lake's water temperature starts to climb, one thing's certain: it's wakeboard season. And once again, Boyne Mountain is proud to welcome the return of Brian Snabes and his team for their incomparable five-day Wakeboard Clinics. Join Brian's crew for five days of safe, super fun wakeboard instruction - and the chance to share laughter and fun with like-minded friends. Camps are open to boys and girls, aged 7 to 16.

Fun: Coaches do their best to make each campers' experience at Boyne Mountain fun and memorable. Campers are never forced to do anything they do not feel comfortable doing. Coaches help students get past their fears and in-turn, progress.
