Join us at Keystone Kidspace for our first skateboard camp, in partnership with the team from Exist Skate Shop! Don't miss this unique opportunity to learn from professionals on Kidspace's very own indoor pump track that will be installed in August. You will have the track to yourselves until we open our doors to the public at 10am. Even more exciting - the last session in this series will be held at Reid Menzer Skatepark.
Instruction will be based on each young skateboarder's current abilities. The pump track course is designed and constructed for beginners and is created entirely for fun and learning to pump, carve and move while increasing comfort and gaining speed. If the skateboarder has never stepped on a board, instruction will include how to get on a skateboard, proper foot placement, how to push and get yourself rolling, and how to balance properly. If the skateboarder has more experience, instruction can be provided on more advanced tricks including ollies, kickflips, and any other trick the skateboarder needs guidance with. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about instruction.
Camp will run for 4 consecutive Saturdays from 9-10am beginning on August 13th:
- Saturday, August 13th from 9-10am @ Keystone Kidspace
- Saturday, August 20th from 9-10am @ Keystone Kidspace
