We are also proud to be the only camp in Westchester to guarantee children will learn to skate by the end of the week.”

The goal of Mini Camp is to teach children the valuable skill of skating while experiencing the benefits of a traditional day camp. The program will be held at Westchester Skating Academy and, for the first time, at PlayLand Ice. Campers will participate in two skating lessons and enjoy special on-site activities daily including baking, arts and crafts, sports, and nature activities. Soccer classes, drills, and scrimmages will be taught by Super Soccer Stars. Mad Science will bring campers their favorite science experiments like rockets, slime, and dry ice, and provide take-home activities. Campers will also learn about and meet some of their favorite animals when Greenburgh Nature Center visits.

Mini Camp is available in three groups;

  •     Group 1: Preschool: 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
  •     Group 2: Ages 5-8: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

At Camp Chillin’, kids will participate in an hour and a half of recreational skating, offered optional skating lessons, and will take daily trips for off-site activities like mini-golf, movies, bowling, rock climbing, and more. Camp Chillin’ will be held June 8 – June 30.

This full-day camp includes: skating lessons, Ice Dance, Zumba, Jump & Spin, Modern Dance, conditioning, Pilates, and more. Skaters will participate in three on-ice and two off-ice sessions daily and perform in a Summer Ice Show.
