CJ’s SKATEPARK FOUNDATION Programs
Kids Being Kids: Sponsored by CIBC, Kids Being Kids is a free program that invites kids and their families to enjoy all CJ’s SKATEPARK has to offer, including scooters, knee-slides, a foam pit, Sony PlayStation room, arts & crafts and, of course, skateboarding. Kids can try skateboarding or scootering, meet superheroes, snuggle therapy dogs and enjoy a pizza lunch.
Special Needs Lessons: We offer subsidized lessons for those with special needs focused on improving flexibility, dexterity, balance, and fine motor skills. Our Special Needs Program has been offered to youth with Autism, Down syndrome, Deaf, blind or partially sighted, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, Dyslexia and other learning disabilities or any other challenge one may have.
Youth Mentorship Program: Each year, our skatepark staff mentors a number of at-risk youth instilling confidence, values, and challenging youth to become leaders in the community. For interested youth, we also show them the administrative side of what it takes to run a skatepark, events, and contests so that they can gain and build on skills that will later serve them in the workforce.
Subsidized camps and lessons for low-income families: Our mission is to serve all kids and youth in the community and share the remarkable benefits of training all children in the sport of skateboarding. As such, we offer camp and lesson scholarships to those in need. Scholarships are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
