About Our Camp

Whether you skate for fun or aspire to improve your skating skills for individual or team competitions, Get the Edge Summer Figure Skating Camp can help you reach your personal skating goals.  Our staff of highly qualified coaches are trained in all disciplines of figure skating and are here to help you to improve your skills in a nurturing environment encouraging fun and safety while challenging skaters to take chances and try some new techniques.  This camp is designed for youth skaters ages 7 to 15 and Adult skaters ages 16+ who are comfortable on the ice skating forwards and backwards and have passed at the minimum Basic Skills level 2. Our leveled instruction can cater to skaters all the way up to Juvenile Free Skate and/or Novice MIF

Adult Skaters: $375/skater
For Adults Only: Partial week rate: $250/skater for any 2 camp days

The Program

Camp will include 3 on-ice sessions (approx. 45min each) and 2-3 off-ice sessions (30min each). Our on-ice curriculum will focus on a variety of skills: power, edges, jumps & spins, turns, footwork, dance, choreography, etc. Sample off-ice topics may include stretching, Pilates, yoga and ballet classes (with certified instructors from the Metropolitan Ballet Academy).

The Schedule

Our regular camp program will run Monday, August 5-Friday, August 9 from 8:30 to 1:00 daily. Skaters will move from topic to topic throughout the day with their assigned group.  Off and on-ice supervision is provided for youth campers. Youth skate tying assistance can be requested although we encourage all skaters to tie their own skates.  Sample schedule based on last season follows. Please check back in early March for actual 2024 Schedule: 


Skaters will be divided based on a combination of their age and their skating ability.  At the onset of the first on-ice session, all skaters will be evaluated and placed into their age/skill-appropriate group. Depending on enrollment, we will strive to have three on-ice levels (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced) so that all skaters can be both comfortable and challenged according to what they can handle and wish to learn.  Skaters will be moved up or back upon request throughout the week as long as the instructors and the skater are comfortable with the level change.

Our Facility

Wissahickon Skating Club was newly renovated in 2019 and has one state of the art ice surface, a very large upstairs lounge for off-ice conditioning, dance and recreational activities, a heated lunchroom and several heated spacious locker rooms and bathroom facilities.  All skaters are welcome to use our rental skates for no additional fee for the entire week of the camp.
