YMCA Camp Sequoia Lake
We come together at skate camp to live simply; close to nature and each other, in a wholesome and safe environment. Camp inspires us to renew our respect for the world around us, recommit ourselves to friends, family and community, and rejoice in the spirit of positivity.
Skateboarding is the vehicle to develop the mental, physical, spiritual and social realms of life. When others feel fear, we feel the opportunity to grow. Where others see empty space, we see the vessel to navigate new frontiers. Skate camp is the place where it all begins.
The legacy of Skate Camp’s media staff includes many of today’s top videographers and photographers. The program is open to anyone who has a passion to take their productions to the next level. Media Interns will learn the whole process behind producing the video and zines for camp. Take your media capabilities to a professional level while enjoying the excellent vibes at Skate Camp for two weeks!
The Counselor in Training (C.I.T.) program offers campers a structured internship that inspires personal and professional growth. In this two week program, C.I.T.s are challenged as a team to take on the responsibilities of skate camp staff members. The goal of the program is to empower interns to gain the necessary skills to succeed in their transition into young adults.
The Elemental Awareness internship program is a unique opportunity for teens and young adults to take the skills they learn in our camp program to the next level. Participants of the intern program will learn advanced survival skills, help assist instructors in teaching the “Basics” program and receive “mentorship hours” where they will receive one-on-one instruction from our experience professional staff. Our aim is to ignite a spark in young people to further their knowledge about the natural world and understand the symbiotic relationship between all things. Elemental Awareness is offered as a one or two week program.
