We also visit indoor places to catch a little cool A/C.

"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
