    Afternoon Open Skate (Applies to camps at 3rd Lair and Overpass Only)
    During morning camp the skatepark is closed to the public.  After camp the park opens for open skate and campers are encouraged to stay after and practice the skills they are learning during camp.  There is an additional fee of $10/day ($5/day for members) to stay after camp for open skate.
    All participants are required to have a waiver signed prior to participating in camp.
    Please keep in mind that during open skate hours, participants are free to come and go as they please.  If your child is young enough that they need adult supervision please plan to stay at the skatepark and supervise them.  We are a staffed facility but do not supervise individuals while they are participating in open skate.
