Scootering

Here's something to get stoked about.

If your kids are complaining about day camp, here’s something they’ll be truly stoked on this summer.

Evolve Scooter Camp is a action-packed summer camp that teaches beginner, intermediate and advanced scooter lessons to campers aged 6 – 14 . Our scooter camp program’s have been expertly designed by our directors to teach campers the foundations of scooter riding & tricking.

Our staff of instructors teach within safe limits in a step-by-step method that focuses on improving camper’s fundamental skills, balance, coordination and style. Evolve Scooter Camp employs a “challenge by choice” philosophy, which means we never force anyone to do something they’re not comfortable doing. Instead, we offer the challenge. It’s there for the taking!

Summer Camps

Summer Camps

Evolve Scooter Camp is Canada’s premier summer scooter camp – currently operating in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia – offering children the opportunity to turn a hobby into an action sport they’ll have a lifelong passion for. Evolve offers campers a unique, exciting and engaging scooter riding experience unlike any other day camp atmosphere in the city; whether they’re looking to crush their first trick, or continue to hone their skills as advanced riders.

Mornings are spent in a group setting practicing fundamental scooter skills. Our instructors are seasoned scooter riders who methodically take Evolve campers through each step of their scootering development. After lunch, campers are given time to work on the tricks they are trying to master. Under the supervision of our staff stationed throughout the skatepark, Evolve campers begin to challenge themselves and each other by working on improvements through repetition. Our instructors are always on hand to work with campers to help correct flaws and accelerate learning.

We know that it’s nearly impossible to scooter all day. That’s why Evolve Scooter Camp offers a dynamic roster of programs to keep campers revved up. Additional programming includes fully supervised swimming for 1-2 hours in the afternoon (when there is a swimming pool on site), games, and even guest pro coaches to help instruct campers and give away swag and prizes!

Skill Levels

At Evolve Scooter Camp, our professionally developed scooter lesson plans ensure that campers of all skill levels are making the most out of their time at our summer camp. Evolve’s highly structured format allows campers to advance through the different scooter lesson levels as their skill level improves – this could be over the course of the week, the summer or several summers at Evolve Scooter Camp.

Beginner
Beginners at Evolve Scooter Camp are introduced to basic riding and foot movements within the first hour of camp. As the day continues and campers get comfortable with the skatepark, we slowly introduce them to the first level of flat ramps. As the week goes on, beginner campers are shown basic scootering skills from pumping on half pipes to doing their first Bunny Hop. We also teach campers how to properly fall, as any rider will do as much falling as scooting when they are first learning. As the week continues, certain individuals will grasp certain skills quicker than others so group sizes are broken down to ensure that campers are continuing to learn what interests them most.
Intermediate
Intermediate scooter lessons at Evolve Scooter Camps range from dropping in and basic vert tricks to basic flatland tricks. Intermediate scooter riders at Evolve Skate Camps take part in structured morning skateboard lessons in their groups, this allows them to learn new skills in the morning and practice them in the afternoon. The Intermediate campers are offered additional assistance in the afternoon sessions to help perfect their new skills.
Advanced
Advanced Scooter campers come to Evolve Scooter Camp with a set of goals for the week in mind. To achieve these goals, we give our advanced campers one-on-one instructor time in the afternoon. Allowing advanced riders to warm up in the morning also gives our coaches an opportunity to see what type of tricks each camper is working on that day. Through the Evolve Scooter Camp process, advanced riders will leave camp with a new arsenal of scooter tricks!

Equipment

Campers must have their own scooter equipment to be safe and successful – it’s much easier to learn how to scoot when you’re comfortable using your own gear: this is important for all skill levels, beginners, intermediate, and advanced. Here is a list of equipment you will need for your child to attend our programs:

Scooter
A trick scooter; folding scooters are not permitted. Check out our equipment guide for help selecting the perfect scooter!
Scooter Helmet
Skateboard/Scooter-specific. *Bicycle, Hockey, and Climbing helmets are not designed for the same protection, and are not allowed
Knee Pads, Elbow Pads, and Wrist Guards
Mandatory for campers 15 and under - these are available in our shop.
Clothing & Accessories
Skateboarding or flat shoes are best Jeans or shorts Hat and Sunscreen Backpack Towel and Bathing Suit
Lunch & Water Bottle
When participating in action sports - proper fuel and hydration is important!

  • Safety First
    Safety First

    At Evolve, our training programs are rigorous. While our goal is to provide excitement and memorable experiences around every corner, safety is always our number one priority. We adhere to strict processes and industry standards. Even if your child has been shredding for years, we still strictly enforce mandatory safety equipment and proper supervision at all times. Practicing safety while riding is a life-long habit we try to instill in each Evolve participant.

  • Evolve's 'Challenge By Choice'
    Evolve's 'Challenge By Choice'

    Each camper is sufficiently and safely coached and supervised from their arrival to their departure. To reduce the inherent risks while riding, we ensure that all campers master the fundamental skills at each level of progression. We employ a “challenge by choice” philosophy, which means we never force anyone to do something they’re not comfortable doing. Instead we offer the challenge, and give them the tools to succeed.

Scootering FAQ

01. What skills can I expect my child will learn?

Throughout the week we ensure that all campers master the basics of scootering: basic riding, board control, stopping and pushing, basic ramps, park etiquette and entry level tricks. All riders that are intermediate and advanced will learn a larger range of tricks.

02. What do campers need to attend camp?

Campers need a scooter, helmet, knee and elbow pads. If you have any specific questions about what kind of scooter to get or what brands are good etc… please check our equipment guide or email or call us.

03. What Skate Parks do we visit on the bus program?

Throughout the week we visit up to 5 parks. These 5 parks vary based on region (Toronto, York Region, Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, etc…), and may they also change due to daily weather conditions.

General FAQ

02. How do you teach someone an action sport?

On the first day of camp we assess a camper’s skills. After we break into groups we run through a series of fundamental skills to make sure everyone in the group is on the same page. Then, we hone in on skills through demonstration by staff and repetition by our campers. We have found this to be a useful teaching method for skateboarding, biking, snowboarding and many other action sports. Many people have learned on their own after years of practice and hard falls: at Evolve, we’re confident we can accelerate the process through our methods of teaching – sometimes with a healthy number of falls!

03. What is the staff to camper ratio?

Evolve Camps for all sports have a 1:6 or 1:8 staff to camper ratio, ensuring that all campers are receiving sufficient attention and supervision.

04. Do campers have to participate in lessons?

Campers are not forced into camp lessons, but they are asked to participate. If the lesson is covering skills that the camper has already mastered they will be able to free ride. They will then receive a one on one lesson in the afternoon where they can work on a new skill.

05. How do you ensure safety at camp?

Extreme sports have their inherent risks – it’s hard to progress in these sports without taking on new challenges and exposing ourselves to greater risk. At Evolve, we try to limit exposure to injury by ensuring campers wear helmets and enough functional padding. Safety is also an integral part of the training and camp environment of Evolve. Our staff teach extreme sports within specific limits in a step by step method. We employ a “challenge by choice” philosophy, which means we never force anyone to do something they’re not comfortable doing. Instead we offer the challenge, its there for the taking.

06. Do campers need lunch?

Yes all campers need to bring a lunch. For some programs we offer hot lunch programs.

07. Your videos and pictures look cool, but everyone looks so professional. Will my child be doing all those crazy tricks?

We obviously try and showcase our best “talent” in these videos. If they are beginners, your child probably isn’t at the level of some of the shots in our video/photos. Maybe some day, but for now they are more at a developmental level. They will still be in Camp videos and/or Photographs taken at camp.

08. My child doesn’t know anybody at the camp. Will they make new friends?

Many campers come to camp not knowing anybody. On the first day of camp our staff ensure that all campers get to know each other. The best part about the program is that they are with the same “cabin” for the entire season, so close bonds are formed quickly.

09. My child has never participated in an action sport before, should they attend camp?

Yes! Whether they’re a learned snowboarder transitioning to skateboarding, or new to action sports in general, we have a wide range of skills levels at all of our camps. We pride ourselves on taking beginner campers and teaching them the skills they need to love their sport of choice. Nothing is more exciting than having a beginner camper show up on a Monday as a complete rookie and leave on a Friday like a veteran.

10. Are Evolve Camps affordable?

We have priced Evolve Camps as an affordable day camp program. You will find that the price of our camps are about the average price of quality day camps and programs.

11. Do I get a discount if I have another sibling/child enrolled in the camp?

Families with multiple campers (who are siblings with the same parents and residence) will receive the following discounts: $25 off the 2nd registration (does not apply for March break), $25 off the 3rd registration.

12. What if I miss the bus during one of the pick up times?

Our buses need to be on time in order to maximize our time at camp. That being said, our buses leave at the exact time that is on the schedule. If you miss the bus, it is your responsibility to drive your child up to camp or to the next stop nearest to you.

13. Can my child stay behind at the end of the day and catch a ride home with me?

Yes, All you need to do is notify our office that your child will not be coming home on the bus. We will provide instructions on how to do this.
