Keeping Your Kids Rolling After Camp
Yes! Your kids finished a successful session at Evolve Camps. They learnt new skills or improved on existing ones they already had. If your child is not participating in any more sessions this summer it is important you keep them rolling after camp. Keep their momentum going so they keep learning and progressing.
Here are some ideas to keep your kids rolling with skateboards and scooters:
Practice with Your Child
Sometimes the best way to make your child love and get attached to something is to practice it together. Face it, you could probably use some time away from the computer as well, rediscovering the thrill of the road without sitting behind the wheel. Rediscover your sense of balance, leave your rational thinking behind, and buy a skateboard or scooter for yourself (if you’re in appropriate physical condition, of course). You get to make sure your child is safe, while learning the basics of skateboarding, and enjoying your free time in a relaxing way few adults would even dare to consider. Really, what’s better than bonding time with your children?
Learn With Peers
Practicing any sport, particularly skateboarding or scootering, is better with others. After introducing your child to the basic principles of skateboarding, give him/her the liberty to find people of the same age to skate with. Skateboarding for kids is an activity that requires a lot of support. Kids are fast learners when knowledge is spread by personal example. In addition, outdoor activities are proven building blocks of long-lasting friendships. If your child struggles with finding someone to share his/her new acquired passion with, then take a tour of the neighborhood and become the match maker. Another way to meet children his/her age would be to go to a nearby skate park, and let your child meet a new friend. There are generally tons of kids learning to skateboard or practicing their skills. Sit on the sidelines and watch your child bond with others, improve their skills, and show off their best moves.
Visit Local Skateparks
Many local skateparks are attached to fun playgrounds and green space. Make a list of the top parks in your city and make it a goal for the summer to visit them all. Let us know which where your favourites.
