IT'S THE BEST
The skateboarding activity and the Skate X-Games are HUGE at Camp Lohikan. We have campers coming from 24 different states and 19 different countries in part because of the quality of our skateboarding program and our awesome skate park.
Whether you're a beginner or highly skilled, you'll definitely improve this summer. Beginners start with the basics. Skateboarders are taught everything from elementary techniques like ollieing to grinds and airs. The atmosphere is stress-free, positive, and a lot of fun!
Lohikan's instructors are hand-picked for their skateboarding skills and their ability to teach our campers. Many are returning staff members. All are accomplished skateboarders. The head of the skateboarding program and in charge of the Skate Park Program is Steve Shields who's been teaching skateboarding for more than 10 years. His safety record and his ability to direct a fun, quality instructional program is without equal.
Lohikan's Skate Park is great! It's large and filled with grinding rails, sky ramps, half pipes, quarter pipes, wedge ramps, spines, jumps and boxes, benches, curbs and even a picnic table! Everything you'll need to keep yourself challenged and your skills sharpened. The Skate Park is large so it's also perfect for street skating.
Campers entering 5th grade and older participate in Lohikan's elective program which allows campers to schedule as much skateboarding as desired. There is no limit to the number of periods a camper can schedule skateboarding!
Lohikan's skate park is open all day long and instructors are scheduled to provide instruction every period. Private lessons are also available.
This is the perfect summer to take your skateboarding skills to the next level. Campers say that they learn more in one week at camp than they would in months of practice on their own!
THE SKATE X-GAMES
The X-Games is an event held every two weeks in the skate park. Skateboarders, inline skaters, BMX cyclists and scooter riders of all abilities and ages are invited to participate in an exhibition that's filled with excitement, music, thrills, spills, and applause! It's FUN!
X-Game participants work with their assigned coach for four days prior to the event, practicing tricks and choreographing a two minute routine. The culmination of that hard work is put on display at the X-Games in front of a highly supportive audience of campers and staff. It's an exciting scene. And the applause you receive after performing is unforgettable!
Good News: All participants in the X-Games Show Clinic receive a X-Games T-shirt which is highly prized in the Lohikan Skating World!
We recommend that campers who want to participate in the X-Games Show Clinic register for the clinic before camp. The clinic is FREE and the registration form is available by clicking here.
