Blading Camp Community Project Initiated: Never forget your roots. Because of our community the camps have be a success. Our mission is to cultivate and build community in our sport. To provide a safe and comfortable space for riders to flourish into their true self.

Today, we had a great surprise. A guy named Deniz sent us 100€ to support Blading Camp. “I love your project but I can’t come this year. Take this money and give it to someone who needs it to help them come and live the dream.” From this beautiful gesture it sparked the creation of the Blading Camp Tip Jar to help the people with low or no income at all live the Experience of Blading Camp.
The project since has grown and we’ve given more than 2,400 euros in donations helping riders with their flights and travel fees from countries like Poland, Czech Republic, Peru and Spain. We also donate a free place at camp to the Spanish Inline skating League Champion Under 14 category.
