Camps Basics

Our skateboard and scooter program is the best in Canada. We provide your campers with a world-class facility! Life at CJ's Camp is specifically designed for any skateboarder, from beginner to advanced. We offer a fun, well-rounded program that is perfect for any young person, even those who are giving skateboarding a try for the very first time.
Who Can Come to Camp?
Any girl or boy who has reached five (5) years of age is eligible for the camp!
No previous skateboard experience is required, only interest! Our facility and instructors can accommodate all skill levels between the ages of 5 and 16.

We also have a Coach-In-Training (CIT) program for teenagers between the ages of 14 and 16, which can be used as volunteer hours for high school credit.  A $50 dollar a week fee is charged to cover costs of lunch and snacks.

My son isn’t much for organized sports, so we thought we’d give CJ’s a try. We weren’t sure what to expect, but he loved the camp. The staff is fantastic. Their coaching has helped him develop his skateboarding skills.

Program and Structure
Upon arrival at CJ's Skate Camp, our instructors will oversee an assessment period to help us place your camper in the correct instruction group based on their age and ability level. Throughout the day, campers will be guided by some of the best trained staff in Canada, learning on a diverse collection of settings including flat, street and mini. These lessons are aimed at introducing new campers to the joy of skateboarding or scootering and working with more experienced campers on improving their skill set.

8:30am to 9:00am is drop-off.

Nutrition, Meals and Snacks
Skateboarding and scootering can really build up an appetite!
That's why we give careful attention to our lunch and snack menu choices. A hot meal is always served at lunchtime, and it changes daily according to our menu.
