Have you ever been interested in learning how to skateboard? Now’s the time to try out that dream! The Berks County Parks and Recreation and Holistic Skateshop are offering a new instructional class for beginner and intermediate skateboarders under the age of 18.

This week-long camp will meet for two hours each day for one week. Basic skill sets will be taught such as; learning to maintain a skateboard, how to ride different obstacles, skatepark etiquette, and respecting each other at the park. The Action Park will be closed until 11 am while the camp is in session.

Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own skateboard; however there will be a few loaners will be available for the program. Helmets are required (if a participant does not have a helmet please let us know so arrangements can be made- some loaner helmets will be available). For extra protection, elbow pads and knee pads are strongly encouraged.

This event is presented by the Berks County Parks and Recreation Department.  For more information, call 610-374-2944 ext. 2611, visit www.countyofberks.com/parks, or check us out on Facebook. Stonecliffe Action Park is located at 1200 Monroe Street, Reading, PA 19601.
