Summer Fun With Evolve Camps


School is almost out, and the kids will be home all summer long. As a stay at home parent, I always enjoyed having them home with me, but found that 9 weeks together was a little too long. I liked to break it up with a week of camp each month.  It gave us all a break from each other, and got them out socializing with kids their own age.

I prefer to enroll my kids in camps that keep them outdoors and active, and there is no shortage of options that meet my criteria.

If you want your kids to be active and on the move this summer, then check out Evolve Skateboarding Scootering Summer Camps. Your kids are sure to enjoy checking out different skate parks across the city.  The camp visits a different park each day, and with bus pick ups at various locations across the city, it doesn't matter where you live.

Beginner, intermediate or advanced - all are welcome at evolve. There are 4 sessions available in Ottawa. July 8-12, July 15-19, August 6-9 and August 12-16.

Camp Schedule:

7:30-8:30am Pickup by bus
9:00am Arrive at skatepark, camp announcements, intro to daily events & schedule.
9:15am Gear Check – all campers will have their boards/scooters & safety gear checked to make sure everything is working properly.
10:00am Break up into groups, begin yoga stretching session.
10:20am Group Lessons
12:00pm Lunch - Please bring a packed lunch from home.
12:30pm Group Lessons or Free-Riding Time
1:30pm Swimming (if pool) or other activity

Camp Details:
  • Cost $360
  • Open to boys and girls 6-14 years old
  • Equipment needed
    • skateboard or scooter
    • knee pads, elbow pads and wrist guards (safety equipment is mandatory)
    • skateboard helmet 
    • water bottle and lunch
  • kids will spend many hours a day working on new skills with the instructors
  • bus pick up locations 
Evolve offers camps in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. They also offer PD day camps and overnight camps in some locations.

I wish I had known about Evolve camps when my kids were younger, and learning how to board. Having a trained instructor teach them may have lessened their frustration.
