Evolve’s Vancouver Skateboard & Scooter Camp takes your kids on a tour of the Greater Vancouver Area & its different skateparks, with a new location every day of the week! Our buses are on the road by 7:30 in the morning to pick up campers from a convenient pickup spot near you, then transport them to a skatepark for the day. Campers work side-by-side with our qualified coaches to develop a strong skateboarding and/or scootering foundation throughout the week. Each day campers receive personalized instruction and participate in lots of other fun activities to ensure the ultimate Evolve experience. This program is designed for boys and girls aged 6-14 and welcomes all skill levels.

-Guest Pros: Evolve invites guest professional coaches to show up at camp throughout the summer. They inspire and instruct campers plus give away unique swag and prizes.
-Yoga & Stretching: It’s all about connecting ourselves to the earth, and in this case also connecting our boards & scooters to the earth! Every morning before campers get going with their program, one of our instructors leads them through a basic yoga stretching session.
