Camp Skate IA (the three day event) is an annual camp offered to skaters and skate instructors. It is designed for the skater who is looking to improve certain skills and is interested in trying out a variety of types of skating: from basic to advanced moves and discipline specific such as hockey, artistic, slalom, trail, race, derby, skate park, skate-to-ski, tricks, games and more. The schedule will take shape in June and be updated as traveling instructors confirm their schedules. It is subject to change.  We offer the camp on the east and west coasts, alternating each year. The Host Hotel is Camp Winadu, so it's bunk beds and cafeteria style food, but it's inexpensive, cozy, on a campus that offers us a pool, a lake, campfires and our own hockey rink.

CAMP SkateIA includes 18 hours of classes, an evening skate around the city, a beach skate and the Saturday night dance skate. We are confined with sound due to the open nature of the rink (no walls, but it has a roof) so the music will be much lower than we'd like. Bring your music to plug in.  We will be double and triple tracking classes offering about 35 classes in total A few classes will be offered off skates, and we are adding Skate-To-Ski classes again.

Become an instructor: For those skaters who are considering becoming an instructor, we offer our Certifications for the 2  & 1/3 days after camp including a Level 1, Level 2, Skate Park and Slalom Certifications. See the schedule below for dates and times.

Instructor Only Day! We have created a day just for all Certified Skate IA Instructors to learn, create, expand and enjoy a day of elevating your teaching. Thursday, August 15th, 10am to 4pm. Free to all Certified Skate IA Members.
