Noticed a lot of summer camp ads for adults and kids, so it's time for a new
thread.

Just a tip: most year-round rinks offer lessons and camps in the summer.
Check www.arenamaps.com (http://www.arenamaps.com) to find your local rink's
website. Look for "Summer Camps" - most have info online by April.

No note about the adult skating camp that they used to host.Unfortunately, the
adult (1-day) camp appears to be a thing of the past. I was hoping they would
offer it again now that they are staying open year round, but when I asked the
program director about it, she danced around the subject for a few minutes and
basically said that it didn't make enough money for the rink and was too much
work to plan, and she's too busy planning the summer camp. :x

I'm hoping my club has a seminar - would be for kids and adults - b/c they've
been talking about doing something like that, but it may not happen this year.

I am interested in doing an adult skate camp again this year. I thought I would
try Hackensack. However, I cannot find any information about it on their
website, your skate camp thread, or google. I am now wondering if they are just
not going to hold it this year. Does anyone know if this annual camp is being
offered this year? If not, do you have a high recommendation for another camp
this summer besides Lake Placid? I have already done that one and since
traveling with my partner would like to be in a new location for variety.

Thank you in advance for any information you might share.

Last year Detroit Skating club held their Motown Tango dance weekend and
Freestyle seminars on the same weekend (inadvertantly) as Hackensack. That was a
fantastic weekend with a lot of ice time. If you are looking for something new,
I'd recommend it, though I don't think the information is up yet.

Thanks for the info! Are these camps worth going to? A number of them seem a bit
pricey for just two days. More importantly, how do your coaches feel about them?
I imagine that a few coaches may not like having to "unteach" a technique a
skater may have picked up at a camp.Are they better for more advanced skaters
(say, intermediate to Masters) or are they helpful for beginners ( Bronze, Juv.
etc.). I've always wondered....

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have only attended Lake Placid skate camp. The fee included two parties,
unlimited freestyle sessions from early AM to late PM with all the adults
enrolled in camp, a welcome reception, a mid week party with alcohol and food,
and an adult show where you could skate your program. We also did a group number
with the participants that week. The group classes were 13.00 additional that
you could pick and choose. They were led by major coaches, some former Olympians
or National/International Competitors. I found this to be quite a deal. The base
fee was 250. It seemed reasonable for the amount of time I spent there all week.
They also zammed the ice evey 2 hours so it seemed well maintained.

I also liked that they broke the groups into levels by skill. For example you
could take a waltz jump class or a doubles class. There were several offerings
for on and off ice each hour. That naturally divided the group into managable
numbers that individual attention was found in each class.

The folks that participated were really nice and shared a passion for skating.
It was worth the money just to get to skate all week with them! I highly
recommend camps. I am not sure if it was a reflection of the classes or the fact
that I got to spend so much time for a week concentrated on skating but I came
home with my skill level significantly improved. I was at the rink all day but
generally skated 6-8 hours of that time per day. A big boost from what I am able
to with the reality of work and life happening at home.

I believe coaches are mostly positive about having you attend camps. I think
most camps have the better coaches to help attract people to attend. But I have
seen coaches discourage anything that would take you away from them. I believe
for the most part they use the "bad habit" excuse, but it seems to be from
coaches that have the most interpersonal difficulty at rinks anyway.

I have an awesome coach with good ego strength. Her ego is good because she is
talented and has no difficulty filling her book with students. She is not
threatened by having her students work with others. She was the first to say
that my abilities demonstrated a significant jump just returning from my week
long camp. She has never discouraged me from taking lessons from other coaches
when she is out of town or if she has asked me to work with a specific coach for
a specific skill I am struggling to achieve. She also believes sometimes you
just have to hear it in a different way.

Thanks for the information on the other camps. I am holding out for Hackensack
but considering Aspen as the alternative so far. It just looks so pretty on the
websites!

My skating friend talked to someone at Hackensack and was told the info would be
posted "soon" so hang in there! I'm waiting as well to see if I can squeeze it
in between Friday clinical and Monday classes. (I was hoping to have more time
for a NYC field trip but I have summer session classes).

I had a great time but was so wiped out when I got off the ice! I skated hard
and was glad I took the time to workout a bit more to get into shape-I felt like
lunch was the only break I got each day-LOL! I learned so much but also heard
the a lot of the same advice I hear from my private coach (yay!)

A friend of mine was out at DSC a few weeks ago for a skate sharpening and said
they have the dates posted for the Motown Tango Weekend - June 25-27.

As long as they're still offering the freestyle clinic in conjunction with the
dance clinic, I'll be there this year! :D

Skittl1321
04-04-2010, 08:28 PM
I thought the Detroit freestyle clinics were worth the money. For actual
improvement- didn't see too much, though I got some interesting new ideas to
bring to my coach. But for the chance to skate with other adults and see what
their skating looked like at different levels was really really great.

I won't go this year because injuries have prevented me from making pretty much
any progress since last summer (and I'm currently off ice now...) but I might go
back in the future. To some extent I think that working with elite skaters is a
selling point, but there was definetly actual content taught.

Hi Dallas Skater - I remember you from Lake Placid, about four years ago, right?
I've attended the camp in LP every year since, and although I love the camp and
the Adirondacks (I'm just a Northeast type of girl), I've been to Sun Valley
several times and it certainly is as beautiful a place as Lake Placid.
I've always wanted to attend that camp, too.
Judy Bloomberg is one of the coaches - what a treat, I took a clinic with her a
few years ago, in Falmouth, Maine. Other caoches of interest include Lisa Marie
Allen, and Gia Gadot. She used to skate cool programs with Gary Beacom.

Here's some info:

Hey Pat, good to virtually see you! I did show Kay Sun Valley as an option and
tried to temp her with pictures from the area. She can just not swallow
Idaho...giggle. I would have been content there but I want her to have a place
she really likes too since I will be skating. NYC is an easy sell as we love
Broadway. We would likely stay a week so I could go to all the plays too. We are
thinking we could stay in NJ for the camp then move to NYC the rest of the week
or maybe even extend a bit more. Aspen is a place we have never been been that
got high marks as well. She loved Lake Placid but it is a small area and we
stayed long enough to do all the summer happenings there. It is just a big rule
out and rule in event going on in Dallas!

Last we spoke you were tearing up the ice with broken arms and other near
suicidal happenings. How have you been? I am delighted to learn that you have
returned to Lake Placid every year. Wish we lived closer to a great camp. We are
such beachy people that a lot of our full vacations head directly to the
tropics. But I at least try to head that way on cruise ships with skating rinks!
giggle.

Good to hear from you and I will want a full report if you do Sun Valley!

Adult Seminar

June 14-18, 2010
Mariposa School of Skating invites Adult Skaters to attend our Seminar June
14-18, 2010.# The on ice components of this program focus on free style, dance,
edges, stroking, turns and artistic.# Off Ice components will include yoga,
dance, conditioning and motivational lectures.# The hours of the seminar will be
between 9am & 5pm tentatively (exact schedule TBD).

You haven't lived until you've experienced a motivational lecture from Doug
Leigh. I don't know anything about the adult specific nature of this camp, but
have been to the seminar week several times. Many of the videos on
http://www.mysk8coach.com/ are from the seminar weeks if you want an idea of
what the ice sessions look like.

Wheaton Ice Arena
(http://www.montgomeryparks.org/enterprise/ice/wheaton/index.shtm) has several
week long summer camps.

The Week in the Park Camps
(http://www.montgomeryparks.org/enterprise/ice/wheaton/documents/brochure2010WeekinthePark.pdf)
are for for ages 6-12, starting on dates from 6/28/10 to 8/16/10.

The Figure Skating Camp
(http://www.montgomeryparks.org/enterprise/ice/wheaton/documents/brochure2010Figure.pdf)
for ages 7 and up starts 8/9/10.

The Ice Dance Clinic
(http://www.montgomeryparks.org/enterprise/ice/wheaton/documents/brochure2010Dance.pdf)
has one session for ages 18 and up, starting 6/28/10 (and you can take less than
the week), and another for ages 5 and up, starting 8/16/10.

The Hockey Camps
(http://www.montgomeryparks.org/enterprise/ice/wheaton/documents/brochure2010SummerHockeyCamp.pdf)
for ages 6-12, starting 7/29/10.

:bow:

Most of the other DC metro area Ice rinks (http://mgrunes.com/dcicerinks.html)
that are open in the summer have camps too.

:bow:

It is the Ice Dance Clinic I want to make sure continues. They have borderline
level attendence. I described this clinics in these threads last year:

http://skatingforums.com/showthread.php?t=29059&highlight=wheaton+dance+week

http://skatingforums.com/showthread.php?t=28373&highlight=wheaton+dance+week

I love the way they teach.

One of the instructors was a Russian National Champion, and the rest, also from
Eastern Bloc, have almost as impressive records (see
http://www.wisa.us/coaches). The Clinic includes on and off ice training, from 8
AM to 11:45 AM, with two 15 minute breaks.

They do not list skating level, but it is probably safe to say you head better
be able to skate inside and outside edges, on both feet, both forwards and
backwards. If it matches the last time I took it, there are various drills at
various levels, some at levels almost no one can do (e.g. skating complicated
figures on power pulls).

They have focused on power, edges, and body positions, but not partnering.

Off ice they have focused on strength and flexibility training they partly
learned from Russian style ballet and ballroom dance instructors.

Twin Oaks Rink in Morristown, NJ is offering a Tuesday afternoon drop-in trial
class with none other than JoJo Starbuck.

http://www.recordernewspapers.com/articles/2010/08/09/madison_eagle/sports/doc4c5aa9cb8e57f691175405.txt


Forecast for Tuesdays ice-cold with Starbuck’s skating classes

Published: Aug 6th, 7:09 AM

The public is invited to join Olympic figure skater JoJo Starbuck of Madison
from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. every Tuesday, now through Aug. 18, at the Twin Oaks Ice
Skating Rink at 65 Columbia Road in Morristown for a refreshing one-hour skating
class for adult recreational beginners and their children. The rink’s phone
number is (973) 292-5699.

Children will have their own class, on another part of the ice, with former
National Hockey League (NHL) great Randy Velischek.

If a child wants to skate and the parent does not, the child may take the class
with Velischek.

And, in keeping with the spontaneity of summer, patrons decide how many lessons
they want to take, from one class, to all the weekly classes through Aug. 18.
Patrons are asked to inform Starbuck about their attendance the night before
each lesson day via e-mail to pnielsen@twinoaksicerink.com
(pnielsen@twinoaksicerink.com).

Each class is $25 per skater. If a parent brings a child to skate too, the cost
is reduced to $20 per family member on the ice.

Starbuck invites the public to strap on their skates and take a break from their
summer routines. Patrons must bring their own skates, as Twin Oaks does not
provide rentals. Hockey and figure skates are welcome.


The lack of rentals is a real drawback, but the pro shop at Mennan Arena has
some resales that are affordable for beginners, as well as new skates.

Full disclosure: I received this (unsolicited) via Yahoo! Alerts, but
coincidentally, a friend of mine is part-owner of the facility. I've never been
there, but I understand it's a converted tennis facility. The group lesson
program is neither ISI nor USFSA, it is a USA Hockey curriculum geared towards
Learn to Play.

I'm thrilled to see LTS classes because the rink started out as a hockey-only
facility. They don't have public or freestyle sessions, afaik, so this is a step
in the right direction towards building patronage and programs. Most non-hockey
skaters don't even know the rink exists.
