Bend, OR — High Cascade Snowboard Camp (HCSC) is proud to announce Kevin English as their new Company Director. Working his way through the ranks, Kevin’s first experience with the famed camp was as a poacher, then as a legitimate employee for the next four summers. Working as a Counselor, Coach, Head Coach and then Assistant Camp Director, English got hooked on HCSC, “I thought my first summer in Govy would be my only one, but come August, I realized there is no better place for a snowboarder to be than in Government Camp, Oregon, at HCSC” says English.

Kevin takes over the helm from previous Director Angela Jolly who dedicated seven summers and four fulltime years to the company. Angela moves in search of new horizons however she will continue in a consultancy role with Vans Inc and HCSC. “Ange and the entire crew preceding me did such a great job of making HCSC the most fun, safe and professionally operated environment for snowboarders and skateboarders of all ages,” English said, “I am excited to continue this legacy.”

“We’re very pleased that Kevin is back with the HCSC family, now as Director,” said Steve Van Doren, Vice President of Events and Promotions for Vans Inc, the parent company of HCSC. “He follows in the footsteps past Directors who cared very much about the people attending the Camp and we’re sure that Kevin will continue the HCSC tradition of delivering fun through snowboarding.” English added, “I am honored to be employed by Steve Van Doren and Vans Inc; these are people that invented the skate shoe category, it doesn’t get any more legitimate.”

“We’re in the business of creating fun” says English “and FUN is exactly what High Cascade Snowboard Camp and Vans Skateboard Camp will continue to offer.”
