SKATE CAMP AT COAST Link: http://www.coastprojects.com/skatecamp
While introducing kids to skateboarding for just one day during our Original COAST Camp, we’ve noticed that kids have a fascination with gliding along under their own power. But biking—which has a very utilitarian basis—skateboarding is much more of an art form. It’s about style and grace—and the things that happen between home and the playground or school. It’s about the journey and not the destination. Eventually, skateboarding can be about tricks and ramps and even competition or sponsorship, but before any of that, there needs to be confidence.
And that is what we offer at Skate Camp.
We’ll start with the extreme basics—things like terminology and safety—and eventually move into technique and simple “tricks”. Along the way, the kids will begin gradually, and then suddenly, to understand how their bodies and minds work together to produce a flow and a feel for pushing and maneuvering the board.
By week’s end, our goal is to have every single child significantly improve their initial baseline while building confidence—not just in skateboarding—but in personal growth and artistic expression. From there, we expect each and every new “skater” will have the skills needed to roll, cruise, and coast around the neighborhood with ease.

(3501 South Roosevelt Boulevard)
Mon, Mar 13, 2017, 9:00 AM – Fri, Mar 17, 2017, 4:00 PM
The goal of this camp is to allow the students to develop their individual potential through creative exploration in the area of theater arts. The students will write a play, make the costumes and design the set. To add to the magic of the week musical accompaniment will allow the students to investigate the world of theater through exercises that activate their voices, bodies, and imaginations. Please join us for a Friday afternoon performance that will showcase the students’ hard work.
