Cal Skateboarding Camp

Since 2000, youth from across the Bay Area have experienced this one of a kind camp. Skateboarding Campers get the opportunity to learn in a one of kind environment, filled with a variety of ramps and street obstacles from 3 ft. to 13 feet tall.  Cal Skateboarding is a nationally recognized program, led by top professionals under the guidance and leadership of our very own Skateboarding Coordinator Sean O’Loughlin.

In this one-week camp, beginner Skateboarders will learn skateboard mechanics and basic riding skills such as balance, carving, riding transitions, and dropping-in. Advanced skaters learn grinds, ollies, and airs, and have the chance to learn to drop in on bigger ramps, and learn flip tricks. Skaters will be assessed on the first day of the session and the lessons will be adapted to their ability. All participants are educated in skateboard safety, which includes ways to fall that minimize injury. Girls are encouraged to attend.

Campers must be ages 8 – 16 (by June 1, 2021) in order to register for this camp. Participants must bring their own skateboard, helmet, and knee & elbow pads.

 

NOTE ABOUT EQUIPMENT FOR THIS CAMP – Participants must bring their own skateboard, helmet, and knee & elbow pads. Equipment must fit properly and be of good quality for the camper to skate in our programs. Due to our rigorous safety standards and instructional content, skaters will not be allowed to skate with the low-cost boards and pads typically found at toy stores or other large general merchandise retailers. Many skaters come with skate boards that are unsafe and prevent them from learning how to turn. Please contact us if you have questions about your equipment at skate@berkeley.edu.

All participants are educated in skateboard safety, which includes ways to fall that minimize injury. This camp is open by invitation only.
