About

The mission of Skateworld Tacoma’s Camp is to provide an innovative and effective camp program that is safe, fun, challenging and that meets the development of healthy living and social needs of our youth in the communities we serve. Every year, we see hundreds of diverse students from all over the South Puget Sound area with a huge variety of talents, abilities, backgrounds, and experiences.

We believe in a strong mix of  free choice activities along with a well-organized agenda that encourages children to learn through play and educational activities that promote social, academic, and physical health. 

Our welltrained staff is certified every year on the following topics:  

  • CPR/AED 
  • Standard First Aid 
  • Child & Youth Abuse Prevention 
  • Bullying Prevention 
  • Behavior Management 

 We perform criminal background checks and reference checks to ensure the safety of your camper. The most important goal of our staff is to provide a nurturing, safe and caring environment for your camper. 

Our rule of thumb is to have one staff member for every 10-15 children as well as older camp “helpers” who assist in the set up and tear down of activities and games.

While most of our days are spent inside the rink participating in dozens of different fun activities, we have a small number of field trips that we lead to some fun, educational and/or interesting places. These usually take place on Fridays. Some past examples include Odesssy 1, Nature Walks, and the local bowling ally. 

These field trips are mandatory for all campers attending on those days and may include special requirements for permission, drop-offs and pick-ups, attire, sunscreen, and snacks. We publish the field trip dates well in advance and also remind parents the week before during sign-in and sign-out. 

Field trips are included with the camp admission costs and do not require extra fees. 

We do our best to accommodate common food allergies, but we cannot guarantee that our foods have not been near or do not contain peanuts and other allergens that cause severe reactions. Parents are welcome to provide approved foods for their kids and we will prepare/serve them safely according to your written instructions. 
 
Please indicate on your registration that your child has specific severe allergies and please discuss arrangements/solutions with a manager before registering for camp.
