Christmas is coming so it’s time again for JumpCamp’s annual Santa Snowboard Drive.

JumpCamp is billed as “Vancouver Island’s premier snowboard camp.” It is an all-ages and abilities freestyle snowboard camp on Forbidden Plateau.

According to the JumpCamp website, it is designed “for snowboarders who want to have fun and progress their skills, especially in the park and backcountry.”

“Just like a toy drive, we are collecting snowboards, boots, jackets and pants to be distributed to less fortunate youth and families in the Comox Valley,” said JumpCamp CEO Patrick Kitto. “At JumpCamp we understand that snowboarding can be an expensive sport and we want to provide as much help to get kids involved. Last year we were able to donate a dozen boards and lots of gear. This year we want to double that!”

They need the community’s help to make that happen.

“The JumpCamp Snowboard Drive works with many local organizations and businesses to make this happen but we depend on the generosity of the people in the Comox Valley to make donations,” said Kitto.

Gear can be dropped off at the front desk of Blue Toque Sports at 120 B 5th St. in downtown Courtenay, or call/text Kitto at 250-792-2896 for pickup.

So get that dusty old board out of the closet and gear out of the back shed, and make a difference in a youth’s life this year.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

The drive will run from Dec. 4 - Dec. 18.
