We are also planning to offer Eastside classes but have been unable to find a location that would allow us to offer regular classes. The private gyms we were renting have gone in a different direction. The community centers don’t allow us to rent.  regularly so they are not an option. We continue to offer our summer camps on the Eastside.

There is no water fountain at the venue, and we encourage you to bring your own water bottle to the class. We are working on getting one but plan on being self-sufficient for right now.

Our camps are for children! They are great for new skaters and longtime skaters. We have at least a dozen training and certified camp counselors for each camp session. We allow kids 6-12 years old to take our camps. No exceptions!

The camp costs $380. A $30 deposit is required upon registration, with the remaining payment due prior to the start of camp. No refunds will be given, and partial days are not permitted. If you choose to switch camps, the $30 fee is non-refundable and will be charged again for the new camp.

The number of campers we can accept depends on the number of camp counselors we have. We typically have 140 – 150 camp slots available, between 4 camps, with 28 – 40 campers in each camp.

We typically open camp registrations a month before the first camp starts, in April. *Subscribe to our community Newsletter to stay up to date on all camp announcements. (link/button)

Absolutely! All of our campers range in experience, from brand new skaters to advanced-level skills. We find that children learn best from other children, so we welcome new skaters!If a camp session is located in a public park, like Crossroads Park, we may limit registrations to previous campers. 

Not just skating! Campers participate in skate lessons the first half of the day, then the rest of the day is filled with arts & crafts, games, and one hour of optional skating. There’s plenty of time for socializing and creating fun summer memories with new and old friends!

We limit registration to ONE camp per child, to allow opportunities for as many campers as possible. If more camp spots become available, there may be an opportunity for your child to participate in more than one camp. We will make an announcement if campers are allowed to register for multiple camps. 

Yes! We have inline skates, protective gear, and helmets available for rent – all which are required for camp. Equipment can be rented at any time, even during camp. * Check out our Equipment page for equipment rental prices (link/button)
