Lace up and learn to skate! With the help of Evergreen's skilled instructors, you'll be gliding around the outdoor rink in no time, while building skills and confidence in the great outdoors.

Parent and Tot classes are geared toward children 4-6 years old who want to learn to skate for the first time.

A parent or guardian must accompany the child. The guardian does not have to be a family member but must be an adult.

Sessions generally involve a short group warm up, a circuit that skaters can follow with their caregiver while the instructor floats around to each child to work on specific skills. Each lesson will end with a cool-down.

Parent and Tot skate lessons are approximately 30 minutes in length. Sessions are 8 weekly lessons in total, except for the condensed session in December which is 3 weekly lessons. To register for a session, please visit CampBrain.
