The Urban Shredder camp is designed for experienced beginner to advanced level skaters ages 9-15. The fully outdoor camp allows students to experience a week in the life of an NYC skater. We meet up at a designated skatepark, warm-up and then skate/walk to an assortment of skate spots in the surrounding area.
This variety of terrain will help make each student into a well rounded skater while feeding the creative spirit found through adventuring around with your skate friends!
Can my child join Urban Shredders?
We get this question a lot. We're not going to ask how high they can ollie, but we do expect Urban Shredders to be very comfortable on their skateboard. Would you feel comfortable with them skating ahead of you on a sidewalk, navigating the cracks and obstacles and stopping at the corner? If so, they probably have the skill to join.
Besides skill, they should also have a strong interest and skate independently outside of any classes or programs. In addition to interest, the program also requires stamina since we're out skating around all day. There's no need to already know tricks. We will learn together and encourage one another!
For children who are absolutely new to skateboarding, please consider our open-level camp held on site at SKATEYOGI!
