From beginners to advanced skaters, Hive Skate Camps focus on the fundamentals and foundations of skateboarding, while also having fun! Our camps include professional instruction and each staff member is well versed in their respected form or style of skating, bringing unique tricks and challenges for our campers to learn. We at Hive want to provide an atmosphere for our campers to grow and keep interested in skating, so in addition to our structured lessons our campers can pick fun group activities and games as well as individualized goals, they would like to accomplish throughout the week. By adding this element to our camps, we give our boys and girls an interactive learning experience. This provides for an exciting social environment that encourages campers to learn while giving them the freedom to develop their styles and creativity. We teach our campers to recognize successes through their failures, to work hard and keep trying and to have confidence in themselves, encouraging our boys and girls to be positive role models and to support their peers. Hive Skate Camps are a good way for our campers to hone their skills and have fun doing it!
Our skate coaches will be working on several avenues of skateboarding, accommodated to your Childs skill level. We have an array of sponsored and professional skaters as well as on-site staff members that will be accompanying our programs to ensure your child gets a quality experience here at Hive. Our coaches will be doing fun group instruction and will also be offering one on one instruction throughout the day to pay special attention to campers individual tricks, styles, and needs in our program. At the beginning of camp each day our campers will have the option of signing up for individual instruction. We encourage our campers to take advantage of these opportunities, and if your child may be shy or nervous to sign up for instruction but wants it, please let us know! Our coaches will be guiding your child throughout our indoor skatepark, working with them on our elements and obstacles of the park best suited to their skill level. They will also be focusing on proper park etiquette, safety, how to avoid injuries, balance, movement, and momentum moving throughout the park. These are basic building blocks of skateboarding that will help your child become more versed in their craft. If your child is an advanced skater, our coaches will be working on more advanced tricks, different obstacles and ramps, how to connect their lines throughout the park, and other challenges that are better suited to your Childs needs. Hive Skate Camps provide options for all of our campers and our coaches are here to ensure your Childs success here at camp.
We will have a bulletin board posted in the lounge that tracks each campers progress for you to view. Our coaches will also be recording tricks and hosting friendly contests and competitions for our campers to participate in. We feel that this provides our campers with extra encouragement throughout their week at camp and helps them to see how far they have come. We hope to celebrate with you and your child in their achievements!
As an extra incentive for our campers, we at Hive offer a skate mentor program. This particular program is offered to those campers who have excellent leadership skills, positive attitudes, that also perform well in school and their communities. We encourage our campers to not only be positive role models in the skate community but in their respected communities at home and school as well. These campers are encouraging and supportive of their peers and strive for excellence in anything they may do. We at Hive like to not only acknowledge these campers but reward them as well. Campers that have been offered a spot in this program are invited back to camp next year as mentors for our new campers and will be assisting our coaches in shaping our new campers into not only skilled skaters but model citizens. In addition to being invited back to camp next year, we also offer a month free admission to our skatepark after camp. We at Hive recognize the dedication and hard work it takes for our skating youth to be such important role models and feel it should be celebrated! We encourage all of our campers to try to be skate mentors!
Our summer day camps are offered in 5-day sessions Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 3 PM. Each session is limited to 15 attendees per camp at a first come first serve basis. The registration fee for the week is $350.00 and is due at the time of registration, with the child's medical form, to reserve your campers spot in the program. Due to the limited number of spots per camp, the registration fee is non-refundable. We at Hive recognize extenuating circumstances which will be handled on a case by case basis.
Campers are responsible for bringing their lunch (we recommend a lunchbox or small cooler) however Hive does provide two snacks a day with water and juice. Campers may bring additional water bottles or thermos’s if needed. On Friday, the last day of camp, we will throw our campers a cookout to celebrate their hard work and effort displayed throughout the week. Any food allergies or dietary restrictions should be disclosed on the medical form filled out at the time of registration and also discussed with a staff member before your child entering the program.
All children must come to camp with proper safety attire. Each child should have a helmet, pads (if necessary) and skateboard with them at camp for each day. We do offer board and helmet rentals at first come first serve basis which is an additional fee, however, if we run out and your child does not have the proper attire, they can not skate. We encourage all campers to have their equipment for a better camp experience. Each child must have a waiver signed by their parent or guardian before the first day of camp begins.
We at Hive reserve the right to exclude campers from the program that display inappropriate behavior or language, disrespect to staff or peers, or for any severe disciplinary action. In the event a camper is excluded from the program for these circumstances, they will not be issued a refund and may be excluded from future programs as well. We at Hive want to allow all of our campers to have fun in a safe and positive environment which requires that level of care from all of our campers and staff members.
We look forward to meeting our new campers this summer!
