Introducing ADULT RAMP CAMP! Coming to Paine’s Park this November for the very first time: a Skate the Foundry skateboard adult camp centering female/nonbinary/genderfluid/ and trans skaters. Geared towards beginner and intermediate skaters, but all levels are welcome! Let’s take over the park and meet your new skate crew!

Join Instructor, Possum(she/her) for one day of shredding. Come learn some skatepark basics, try some new tricks, and make new friends. If you have never skateboarded before, we highly recommend scheduling one or two private lessons beforehand, so that you will be able to enjoy this camp much more. Safety comes first especially during this crazy time!
