Summer 2013 Skate Camp For Girls

For the first time ever we are offering a camp for girls. This camp will even have female instructors. We've always had girls coming to camp, but they have been heavily outnumbered by boys. This camp is aimed at girls who are new to skateboarding and will also challenge those who can already ride the mini ramp. There will be one-on-one teaching time, group games, fun activities, video analysis and an hour of free skate where campers can privately enjoy the facility every day.
