The Raddest Summer Camp in Europe?

Located high up in the Formazza Valley and accessible only by a 3-hour hike from civilization, the Positivity Camp offers a summer shred experience like no other…

From June 13 to 22 the most unique summer camp in Europe returns to its home base in what is easily the most exclusive location in the Alps.

The Positivity Camp is the only non-profit summer snowboard camp in the world: united, eco-friendly, accessible only by foot and is the perfect combination of sport & nature. The campers live all together in 3A Lodge in high Formazza Valley and can lap the sick setup crafted by the Positivity crew on the isolated drag lift.

Alessandro Benussi sends one off the Positivity Camp’s big bertha.

“The shelter 3A managed by an NGO Operazione Mato Grosso , located at 2970 meters above sea level with a 900 meter circa ski lift and a private snowpark and able to accommodate around 60 persons.

The camp and the shelter can be reached only by foot with a spectacular 3 hour hike, while your luggage is transported at the top by a cableway which run once a week, on Fridays.

Waiting for you at the top there is a ski lift with private snowpark where you snowboard in the morning and according to weather and snow also in the afternoon after the lunch break . Snowboard courses and photography, mini mega contest, barbecue in the park for the only summer camp on an Italian glacier.
