Skateboarding Camp: Gnarly Skills

Denver Washington Park Skateboarding

Campers learn to shred from skate park to street in our weeklong Skateboarding Day Camp. Spending every day at one of Colorado’s impressive, inspiring skate parks, 3rd – 7th graders master the maneuvers of skating and build a strong foundation of technical skills and confidence for wherever their boards take them next.

Campers are grouped by skill level as they hone their skateboarding technique, develop a better understanding of their equipment, practice new tricks and learn the ins and outs skateboarding etiquette, culture and terminology. Guided by our experienced staff, these young skaters learn what it takes to ride at the park.

Skateboarding Day Camp campers should have some skateboarding knowledge and comfort on their boards, but be excited to deepen their skills.

Meet Your Camp Director

Nate Thoreson

I love working with kiddos in the outdoors and in particular, that Mother Nature teaches adaptability. I enjoy showing kids how to change gears when thrown curve balls and help find their own natural path of learning and growing.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blue’s 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 Clue’s 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.
