Rubicon Skate Camp
Rubicon Skate Camps are Europe’s, maybe the Worlds, most intense week long residential skate camps.
Each week we travel across the UK skating the best parks our country has to offer.
We're joined by pro riders like those from the Texas based Majer Crew or The Skate Warehouse, so you always get to skate with the very best.
With other young skaters from every corner of the globe, our week long trips are simply the best choice for those who want a week away skating.
Always contact us first before making any booking for any week - as availability can change very quickly.
If you are looking at a particular week and it is full, please get in contact in case we can expand the week or add you to the waiting list.
April 2nd to 6th (Easter Holidays) - FULL
July 16th to 20th (Summer Holidays Week 2) - HURRY (please note this is before most UK schools breakup)
July 23rd to 27th (Summer Holidays Week 3) - HURRY
July 30th to August 3rd (Summer Holidays Week 4) - AVAILABLE
August 27th to August 31st (Summer Holidays Week 8) - AVAILABLE
If you are coming from abroad, please get in contact so we can send you bank details to make a transfer to - as well as discuss any travel arrangements, weekend arrivals or airport transfers. Thanks.

Our camps are based just south of Birmingham - with children coming from all over the UK (and lots of other countries too) to take part. Parents simply drop the children off on the Monday morning and pick them up on the Friday evening and we take care of the rest.
Birmingham is ideally positioned in the heart of the country to give us easy access to hundreds of skateparks. It also has a major airport (to help children come from abroad) and a major train station (to help those children travelling by themselves).
All riders are allocated a bunk bed in our dorm rooms. The toilet and shower block is right next door. And there is a movie and games room where they can eat and relax.
The staff and riders have a seperate block just 20m away, so the group of children are always supervised – and there are always adults around to deal with any questions or problems.
We provide 3 meals a day. Breakfast is supplied on site with a range of cereals, breads and spreads. Lunch will be supplied at one of the skate parks. A typical packed lunch with sandwiches or baguettes, fruit, chocolate and crisps. Dinner is prepared back at the camp site with favourites such as pizzas, chicken and chips and hot dogs and waffles. And hopefully if the weather holds out, an outdoor BBQ.
During the week we visit some of the UK’s very best indoor and outdoor skateparks. We also like to visit new parks that have recently opened – as well as some local parks that have interesting features or layout. If the weather is nice, we try and stay outdoors – afterall, this is the UK and we get a lot of rain for 8 months of the year forcing us indoors so its nice to make the most of the sunny time!
There’s no set plan each week as to what parks we will visit – and the staff and drivers will usually decide in the morning over breakfast – but we’ve never gone to less than 10 parks in a week – and our record is 20!!
Some of our favourite parks from last year were Radlands Plaza, Faringdon, Stoke-on-Trent Plaza, Bollywood, Adrenaline Alley, Nottingham, Wolverhampton, Bromsgrove, Mansfield, Burton, Corby and Bearwood. There are so many others to choose from – and we love going to new places too – so if you think you know one worth visiting that we havent been to, just let us know. Road trip!!
