What Do We Do?
In group lessons and with individual instruction, campers will develop their skateboarding skills through a linear, methodical curriculum that starts with the basics, with emphasis on inclusivity, personal development, and teamwork. More advanced participants will have the opportunity to be mentored by our team of instructors, pushing their skating to the next level!
Beyond just skateboarding, summer camp appeals to kids' sense of adventure with trips throughout the week to different skateparks, as well as swimming, film-making, fun games, giveaways, ramp-building, skateboard art, and tons more! (Some of these activities may be modified to comply with COVID guidelines. Read more here.)
During down time, we hold group discussions about how the lessons learned through skateboarding can positively effect on our lives; developing healthy self-esteem, fostering determination and resilience, and being advocates for equality are things we can carry with us beyond the skate park!
What Makes Us Different?
We help campers understand healthy social skills and emotional well-being through skateboarding, as well as positive ways of dealing with frustration and developing confidence on and off the board.
Camp participants thrive by being in a safe, friendly, fun learning environment where they can explore skating, and learn what it has to offer. Impact promotes healthy, active lifestyles, while working to foster a sense of community and responsibility through the lens of skateboarding.
What Do I Need?
No skateboarding experience is required!
Campers will need a skateboard and helmet, and knee/elbow pads are highly recommended, but we will supply equipment for those who need to borrow it—just indicate what you need on the registration form. When you're ready to purchase gear, you can take a look at our Parent FAQ for information on what to buy, and where to go.
Since we are unsure about what the COVID protocols will be in the summer, we ask that you pre-register to the program. This is to avoid over-filling the program and having to de-enroll people at the last minute; participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
We anticipate similar guidelines to the summer of 2021, and are currently accepting 30 participants per session. This pre-registration is set up to reserve those spots. We will update this page when certain weeks have filled up. At that point we will start accepting people on the waitlist for those weeks.
Unfortunately, government and public health guidelines can change without much notice. The best we can do is keep everyone posted as soon as possible. Before applying, please read our COVID statement to ensure that this program is right for your child.
