Kids 7-14 years old who are interested in learning the fundamentals of skateboarding safely.


Hard Heads Skateboard Camp will be an experience you won’t forget. Through practice, various drills, and exercises, our instructors will help beginner skaters become more comfortable with skateboard safety, park etiquette, and basic techniques, such as turning, stopping, and pushing.


June 24 -August 23, 2019 Sessions will meet 8:00 am -12pm, Monday through Friday, for one week. Camp will be available for purchase in week sessions. Class capacity is 10, which allows us to give each participant personal instruction. Registration opens June 4, 2019.


Kids see skaters and say they want to do that. But neither them or their parents know where to look for help. Our goal is to ensure that all skaters learn how to shred in a manner that is safe, space appropriate, and allows them to discover their capabilities, while having fun.


We will meet up between Hard Times Skate Shop, located at 67 Afton Parkway Portsmouth, VA 23702, and Parkside Place (Cradock Skatepark) 4117 George Washington Highway Portsmouth, VA 23702.

Cost – $150.00 per participant All camp participants must bring your own equipment. Call in advance if you do not have a skateboard. We have a limited supply and they are available on a first come, first serve basis. If equipment is purchased from Hard Times you will receive a discount on equipment with camp registration. Snack/Drink (Water and Fruit will be available).
