If your child has spending money, please keep the money in an envelope (to be provided) and leave the money with our cashier. Your child can ask for the money at any time. Skatetown does not monitor how and when your child’s money is to be spent. You can also deposit spending money on a house account for your child.
Warm clothes, one pair of tall, thin socks and gloves. Wearing two pairs of socks will likely result in blisters. Campers will receive a free t-shirt at Camp Cool and a free hockey jersey at Hockey Camp Cool. This shirt or jersey must be worn every day. Note that the paints we use on the ice and in the show are washable. Depending on the temperature outdoors, campers will eat lunch outside. Please bring sandals, hat, sunglasses and a change of clothes. Be sure to label all of your child’s belongings.
All campers must wear protective gear. Campers who do not have their own gear will be given loaner gear for the week. Gear should be taken home at night and brought back each day.
We strongly recommend it and have loaner bike helmets sizes XS to XXL. Everyone must wear a helmet during hockey, broomball and GoKart events and will be provided.
Campers will need to bring snacks and a lunch or pre-purchase a meal from the Skatetown Café when signing in each morning. Meals from Skatetown are approximately $8. Please note that the café will not be open, so lunch orders need to be prepaid by 10am. Campers may want to bring change for video games and a snack.
Campers get one free soda each day.
Skatetown has a variety of video games in the video arcade; however, campers are NOT allowed to play video games during camp hours. Video games are play-at-your-own-risk; no refunds.
Skatetown’s party rooms are transformed into the Camp Cool Club during the summer. This is a great place to warm up and relax when not skating. Daily activities may include craft projects, team events, board games and movies.
Backpacks, shoes and other items are to be kept in baskets in the Camp Cool Club rooms.
Campers who are registered for the entire week will get to take four laps around the rink on a GoKart. Campers dropping in for the day will NOT get to ride on a GoKart.
