Skateboard Design Camp

Mon Aug 15, 2022
9:30am to 2:00pm PT
8 years and up
$450 per camper plus $150 for the skateboard kit

Kids in this camp learn the art and physics of skateboard design as they create and apply graphics onto their skateboard deck, then learn how to apply grip tape and mount the trucks and wheels. Campers use CAD software to help design logos for their skate brand and transfer the design onto t-shirts, stickers, and more. The creations are tested with mini skate lessons.

Campers must have helmets, wrist guards, knee pads, and elbow pads daily to participate in the lessons. 

Workshops are designed to be developmentally appropriate for the age range listed, so that each child feels empowered and successful, not frustrated. In order to set everyone up for success, Design Hive insists that all participants must be the appropriate age, as listed.

In order for students to fully participate, they are expected to:
1. Use full sized scissors independently
2. Use a hot glue gun independently.
3. Know how to tie a knot and a bow.

These camps and workshops tend to be messy, especially STEAM sessions and process art classes. Campers frequently use paint, sticky substances like resin and clay, and tools like screwdrivers and cardboard saws. Please send children in clothes that can get something on them that may not wash out.

Design Hive provides appropriate tools and helps guide children through activities safely. Design Hive instructors have the expectation that all children will participate and use all provided tools. Please make sure that this sounds appealing to both you and your child prior to registering.
