Skate the Foundry has been amazing for my kiddo and their love of skateboarding! Brett and the team at Skate The Foundry have helped my child develop such a love of skateboarding and has built so much confidence in it over the past 6 months of lessons with Lilah! We were lucky enough to host their birthday party there this past weekend and it was SO MUCH FUN. The kiddos were all raving, and Brett, Lilah and Possum created the best vibes. Such a fun skate lesson and games and fun for the kids. Couldn't recommend this spot more highly.

Brett was great with my son. He had an awesome time and gained a ton of confidence. Couldn't be happier with this place. The complete boards were "really cool".

My son (6) took at private lesson here last week and am so happy with our experience. The owner is so kind, helpful, and professional and his team is so dedicated to their craft and teaching others the love of skateboarding. They took all the intimidation out of it, and taught my son so many useful tips in such a short period of time. This is truly a Philly gem and would definitely recommend to beginners, especially kids who just need a quality mentor!

Amazing classes. Amazing staff. Everyone is so welcoming and knowledgeable. After attending one class, I felt empowered to skate every day. Lilah was a great instructor and I look forward to being a part of this wonderful skate community! I am a newer skater and I met some really good friends who gave great tips. Kevin is a manager at the store, and he was really kind and supportive. Honestly love this place. Open Skate is pretty open on weekdays and everyone is so supportive.

Amazing spot to learn to skate for all levels! I’ve been skating since I was a kid, but never had the guts to Ollie or ride half pipes. Within my first 10 mins of a private lesson with Brett, I landed an Ollie that was 27 years in the making! One of the best feelings ever. Great for kids, but also really great for adults who want to learn or develop their abilities. Will definitely be back soon

What Can I Expect From A Full Day Of Camp?

Just like with every program we offer, those participating in a Skate The Foundry Summer Camp can expect an experience tailored to their skill levels and their needs that is full of fun and learning!

We will start our days with a Morning Meeting and a stretch so all of the campers can get to know each other (and us!) while getting warmed up for the day. We will also cover important topics such as etiquette in the skatepark and the skating goals we hope to accomplish both short and long term

From there the day will take off with activities such as group skates (split by age and/or skill level) where campers will have the opportunity to learn new skills from our instructors together as well as less structured free skates where campers can practice what they have been working on as a whole group.

Interspersed throughout workshops, skaters can expect breaks for lunch and snacks to fuel up for more learning and fun (please note that food is not provided, please plan accordingly!).

Summer Camps at Skate The Foundry go beyond skating! Additional experiences potentially include trips to the Art Museum as well as art based workshops to further flex your kid’s creative muscles.
