What Skaters Learn at Super Camp

Each year, Super Camp provides a comprehensive, full-body-and-mind training experience for young skaters with on-ice and off-ice instruction:

  • strengthens performance through working on jump techniques, stroking skills, edges, and strength conditioning;
  • refines artistry through dance classes, yoga instruction, and body awareness training both on and off the ice; and
  • builds mental strength & sportsmanship through discussions on sports psychology, leadership, nutrition, competing, etc.
  • Super Camp Group Number

Take advantage of the opportunity for optional private lessons during the week, too. You can request lessons with certain G2C coaches to hone key skills.  These lessons are booked on a first-come, first-served basis, and slots fill quickly.

Get the customized assistance you need as you work with a wide range of industry experts in technical skills, the pole harness, Dartfish and cutting-edge technology, artistry and choreography, and more during the week.

G2C Super Camp Daily Schedule

A typical day at Super Camp starts at 8 AM and skaters are at the rink until 5 PM with many activities, including both on- and off-ice classes, discussions, group numbers, and private lessons, as well as a lunch break and several snack breaks in between.

Skaters are divided into different groups based on age and ability.

In the evenings, there is free time for relaxation and group-building activities with the camp counselors.
