About Skate Camp

Skate Camp logo

Skate Camp is an ACA accredited camp geared for kids who eat, sleep and breathe skateboarding! Skate Camp offers eight weeks of skateboarding and instruction. The camp provides a challenging environment for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skaters (ages 7 to 12 years). Because we do A LOT of skateboarding throughout the day, we encourage campers to have some ability to skate before coming to our camp! However, as long as your camper has a strong desire to be on their skateboard all week long, we would be happy to have them join our program! Experienced counselors are dedicated to developing the skills of young skaters and a love of the sport.

Refund/Schedule Change Policy: All payments are always 100% Refundable (all payments means ALL payments; registration fees, deposits, EVERYTHING). You can change or cancel your child's schedule at any time, although we prefer at least a week's notice of changes so campers on our waitlist have a chance to come to camp!

Grouping Kids & Staff

Kids and staff will be grouped into small groups of no more than 15. They must stay in these groups for the entire week of camp; traveling to/from trips, games, lunch, EVERYTHING must be in these groups.

Each group will have a van that they will travel in, vans for each group will not change and will be cleaned and disinfected each night.

 

Masks

Our Staff and Kids will need to wear a mask at all times while at camp based on the CDC and Maryland Department of Health guidelines. Don’t have a mask? No problem! We will have a few on site, but we ask that you pack a mask for your child so they can be more comfortable following these guidelines.

 

Drop Off & Pick Up

I am sure most of your have had curbside pick up for food recently??? Now we will have curbside pick up & drop off for camp! As you pull up, we will have staff and signs directing you to your child's van. Once there, your child(ren) will be checked in and have their temperature taken. We will be using non-contact thermometers. Based on the guidelines, and for the safety of our kids and staff, ANYONE (staff or child) with a temperature above 100.4 degrees F will be asked to return home.

 

**An important note about Inclement Weather**

Currently we do not have enough indoor activities or locations available to provide camp during inclement weather. Unlike past summers where we could go to movie theaters, Dave & Busters, or aquariums, all of these locations are currently closed. We will try our best to be open whenever possible, but we may need to close due to weather. Of course, as more places open we will adjust this accordingly.
