Skateboarding Camp: Gnarly Skills

Boulder – Skateboarding

Campers learn to shred from skate park to street in our weeklong Skateboarding Day Camp. Spending every day at one of Colorado’s spectacular skate parks, 3rd – 7th graders will learn introductory to advanced skate skills all at local skateparks, and safety skills that keep them confident wherever their boards take them next.

Campers are grouped by grade as they hone their skateboarding technique, develop a better understanding of their equipment, learn new tricks and get immersed in skateboarding etiquette, culture and terminology. With guidance from our experienced instructors, these young skaters learn what it takes to impress at the park.

Skateboarding Day Camp campers should have some skateboarding knowledge and be comfortable riding on their boards, turning, and stopping. They should also have a desire to ride the park and learn tricks.

THE WEEK’S ADVENTURES

Technical Skills

Skate Park Skating

Campers will master the ability to skate safely in a range of environments and build their trick repertoires with grinds, ollies and flip tricks, practicing what they learn on sidewalks, in lots, through obstacle courses, and at skate parks.

Places We Go: Erie Skatepark, Lafayette Skatepark, Louisville Skatepark

During the week, campers will visit one of several local skate parks every day practicing on each park’s individual features and learning the etiquette and terminology they need to ride alongside their fellow skaters.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blues Clues? It was the most successful kids show of all time. Do you remember that book that your child insisted on reading over and over again? How could you forget it. Why was Blues Clues so successful and why did your child NEED to re-read that book? Because repetition promotes learning, growth, and empowerment.

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple weeks of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others.

WE TAKE SAFETY SERIOUSLY

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
