Rainy Day Alternatives

Lets face it, we live in South Florida. It’s a harsh reality but its gonna be flat most the summer! Floridians also are used to a quick afternoon summer storm before the sun comes out for the rest of the day. In the event of bad weather, camp still goes on. However should there be thunder and lightning we take the kids out of the park immediately and seek shelter.  We also find tons of indoor ways to have fun whn the weather does not cooperate.

Activities Include:

  • Trips to Island Water Sports to learn about skateboards and how to put one together
  • Partnership with the Apple Store for Video Editing and Board Design
  • Fun at the Pinball Museum
  • Visits to local favorites like Tates Comics
  • Trips to 7-Eleven for slushies and Lunch Outings
  • and more

"Awesome camp for kids. Great staff and the highlight of the summer for all the campers! Cant wait to sign my kids up again this summer."
-Doug Speed

 

"Skate camp is a new favorite for us. My son had so much fun and learned a few tricks. He will be back for more!"
-Jennifer Cigale
"My boys spent their spring break at Skate Camp and absolutely loved it. They couldn't wait to come to camp each morning and the counselors were amazing. The boys are better skaters thanks to Island Camps."
-Benjamin Appleyard

"This is my kid's 2nd year at Island Skate Camp for summer, but he also goes for Spring and Winter camp, and he is having the best time with Uli and the camp. When he first started he was a novice skater and now with help from Zion he is dropping in on 9ft vert ramp. The camp is great for skaters of all levels, the counselors are very patient and work with each kid's level. My son is learning so much from the counselors and has truly grown with his skating. The staff is amazing, caring, and attentive. When he is not in camp for the week he is begging to go back. Through the camp and skating, the kids learn so much more about themselves such as; perseverance, self-esteem, and confidence. This is such a great experience with a great staff. Every time we are on break my kids are enrolled with Uli and the staff and every time they have the best time!"
-Stephanie D., Boca Raton, FL
