How does the airport service work?
The local Airport is Malaga (AGP) Spain. We designed this so that parents can just put their child on the plane and we will safely pick them up and then drop them off at the airport.
For our Riders Under 18
All Riders under 18 WILL BE picked up and dropped from the airport. The airport service is only available on the first and last days of the camp.
Too Parents: All you have to do it put your child on the plane and well pick them up and make sure they get back to the airport in perfect time to return home. Just book their flight and tell us when they landing! All riders will be met at the airport by our Blading Camp Staff and will never be left alone. On the arrival day we have a staff member who stays at the airport all day to receive the riders and to ensure no one is left alone. We will have constant contact with you and them (the camper) thru the whole process. After years and years of this process we are pros at it. Our track record speaks for it self. Over 500 campers have come to visit us with out any issues picking them up or dropping them off. We’re good at this. We reccomend also that you book Flight Insurance.
**Please contact us before booking any Flights that Depart or Arrive before 8:00am!
For our Riders Over 18+
The only thing you need to do is get yourself to the Blading Camp Meeting Point very conveniently located near the airport. From there we load the bus and get the party started. Malaga is quite easy and economical to travel around. There are Taxis/Urbers and Metro and public bus options to bring you to the our Meeting Point. Uber is the simplest and easiest and only about 15 euros from the airport to our meeting point!
The Location GPS of the Meeting point will be sent to you after registration is complete and all your forms have been sent in.
Camp will start at 14:00 on the first day and end at 12:00 on the last day.
On the last day at 12:00 the bus will drop EVERYONE off at the airport. IF you fly early or you fly late is your choice but we will make an airport run with the bus one time when camp ends. If you depart before 12:00 you are responsible to get to the airport by Urber to Taxi.
On what day do i book my flights?
Campers flights should booked to arrive on the morning of the first day of the camp and the leave/depart on the afternoon/evening of the last day.
We do not have accommodations available on the days before or the days after the camp.
We require that all Traveling Campers download and install Whats app to be able to communicate directly with the staff who will be at the airport picking you up. Sometimes there are flight delays and this makes life super easy to have direct contact.
Any questions about flights please contact us before booking / Josh +34 610 662 955 or Uani +34 681 638 057 or email@example.com if you have any doubts, please ask to save yourself and us a lot of headaches!
Am i too old for camp?
Are you too old to learn something new? No way, this is made just for you!
We are an all ages camp and are focused around cultivating the youth and creating an international community for the sport. Age is only a number. Everything about the camp is made for all ages riders including the 1 on 1 lessons that go great with any age. Our daily activities are done together in a group, its a family centered camp. In 2019 we had a huge resurgence of older riders coming down to Malaga and most weeks have a great mixture of young gun riders and older skaters 25+. The mixture is just great and creates a perfect environment cause each motivates the other! You’ll see!
*Accommodations can change but our camp standards are very high, and if anything we’re to change it only would be to improve your experience!
Blading Camp is an evolving camp which means each year we improve and update to be more inline with our philosophy and principals. With the popularity of the camp we will have 2 different locations for 2021. Be confident that our bases in both locations are the same. One is not better than the other. They are both Super Clean, in a beautiful location, with Super comfy bed fully equipped with everything you will need, live surrounded in nature, a giant swimming pool, lots of space for our activities, workshops, practice rails and water gun wars and of course, incredible chefs preparing all your traditional Spanish Meals.
We will be in staying just north of Malaga in super cool Bungalows, surrounded by nature built just for us! They are brand new and each has air conditioning and electricity.This is the same location as we used for Fall Fling 2020 and everyone loved it!
For the other weeks of camp we will be staying all together in a Eco-Lodge. All is constructed by repurposed/reused materials! We will all be staying together in our Blading Camp Tipi Tents, completely surrounded by nature. Each one sleeps 4 people and comes fully equipped with a super comfy bed and a fan ready to welcome you home! We have space to skate and beautiful rooms for our Workshops like “How to film,” “How to Shoot photos” or “How to Social Media.” We have lots of super clean bathrooms and showers to accommodate everyone with ease.
Campers who sign up should be accustomed to summer camp sleeping style sharing space with up to 4 people.
All bed dressings and blankets are provided!
How much is camp?
Camp is 699 Euros 100% All inclusive. That’s everything. The initial reservation of 200 euros must be thru the website or by bank transfer. Then the remaining balance of 499 euros can be paid in a few ways. We recommend the most easiest and simple for is that you pay the balance in CASH upon arrive to Malaga. Bank transfers must be made at least ONE month before the Start of you camp date.
Do you have Special, Vegan or Vegetarian Diets available?
Yes of course! Many of our staff members are vegetarians. All Meals are prepared as ordered by the camper during the registration process. The Chef is literally a 5 Star Pro and prepares the tastiest Spanish treats. All water, daily snacks, all meals, and fruits will be provided everyday as well.
I’m a parent, can i come with my younger rider to camp?
Parents who are wishing to come down to the Camp with their children are welcome! We recommend that you contact us by email. This year we do not have accommodations at the camp for the parents. Parents must stay near the camp grounds and visit daily. Parents are welcome to come to the camp every single morning before we leave to start our day. The days start early around 8:30/9 and end around 9/10 on the evenings! Parents are welcome to come by at night as well but it’s a lot more complicated in the evenings after a long day day in the sun.
As always we can stay in constant contact with parents to update where we are and when we will return to the house.
Can I make a Reservation and then cancel it if I’m unable to join? Do i get my money back?
Yes you can! Please have a look a the link below as there are different options for you!
What if I’ve made my reservation for this year but i can’t join for whatever reason?
If your unable to join us after you’ve made your reservation don’t worry, well simply move it to another week that fits your schedule better!
*In the event of any sanitary disaster, crisis or government mandated change of policy, we will not cancel camp, we will move your current reservation to the next available camp date.
We recommend that you book your flights with Travel Insurance.
How old must the Camper be?
Camp is designed so that all ages are welcome to grow and learn together. We provide the teaching techniques and exercises for everyone. Guaranteed you’ll learn what you want to learn no matter your age. Both boys and girls who are 13 years or older are welcome to the camp!
In the past years we have had campers as young as 8 years We made special arrangements with the parents and everything was perfect. Old or young, you’ll find your place perfectly here.
Any camper under the age of 13 is required to contact us before signing up. If you wish you register your child who is younger than 13 years old please email us before so we can talk directly to you about the whole process.
*Under 13 require a special airport service where a Camp councilor must enter into the airport, pass thru security and meet your child at the door of the airplane.
If you feel like your “too old” for this, your defiantly not! We made this just for you! #backtoblading
What age was your youngest rider?
7 years old
What age was your oldest rider?
52 years old
This looks like its mostly for kids? I’m over 30… will I be the only adult there?
No way. We have designed and built everything so that anyone at any age will love the 6 day tour. As we are here to insure, focus and cultivate the next generation of skaters. Our camps are normally well mixed with riders from all ages and skill levels. Your presence here is very important. The younger kids see a mature rider and they learn and see that they too can grow and mature into the sport. The same type of motivation works for the more mature rider who’s perfecting his skills. He takes energy and power from seeing the younger rider achieve a new trick. This just repeats back and forth, everyone motivating each other. This is the Blading Camp Magic. But words can only do so much, wait till you experience it.
How good do I need to be/skill level?
On every camp there is always a mixture of skill levels, however the camps are not really suitable for total beginners. “This means that if you’ve literally just gone out and bought your first pair of skates, then you might find the camps a bit intensive.” Riders should at least be good with the basics of standing, stopping and rolling on skates comfortably on skates. Any doubts please contact us.
What if i have never been in a skate park before but i want to learn ramps and grind?
Then you came to the right place! Cause everyone is here to learn and this is what the camp is all about. We will work on the very basic of techniques to ensure you have a great foundation. We start from the most basic and go from there. Again, if you’ve just gone out and bought skates and still can’t roll comfortably on the flat ground, you may find the camp a bit intense as we do some city skating and group skates all together. If your not sure, just ask!
What do we need to pack?
-A copy of your European insurance card or Insurance card from your country of origin.
-Tooth brush/tooth paste/ toiletries/soap shampoo
-A shower towel and beach blanket
-Special medications even if you don’t take regular bring anything in case.
-Protection gear & extra parts wheels and bearings. Please bring your gear even if you might not use it, we are skating 6 days straight, believe us you’ll be happy you did.
-Flip flops or beach shoes
-Helmets. No helmet no camp
-Big wheels if you have them
-Jacket / Hoodie
-Reusable Water Bottle
Do i need spending money?
We are the worlds only 100% all inclusive camp which means children you need pocket money if they wish to buy souvenirs, drinks or candy during the skates thru the city. All water, daily snacks, all meals, and fruits will be provided by Blading Camp every day.
Can we contact our child during camp?
Yes, of course. These days most children have their own mobile phones anyway but if not you can contact one of the camp organizers Josh +34 610 662 955 or Uani +34 681 63 80 57 – We recommend campers all download Whats app to make communication super easy. Please note that during the days we are very busy so do not be worried if we can not answer our phones immediately.
How do we Travel around?
Transportation will be provided all week in a nice new, air-conditioned bus. The bus has USB chargers for all the charging needs as well as sometimes, WIFI! But not always as we go thru the mountains a lot. The bus is equipped with seat belts for all and the drivers are all chosen by us personally and are 100% professionally licensed, insured and certified. The bus is cleaned and sanitized extensively after each and everyday to ensure your safety at all times!
All Campers are required to travel with their European blue insurance card. Riders from other parts of the world should bring their insurance documents as well.
Camp Group Size
The amount of riders will vary from week to week. Most weeks are designed and built with the intention of having 40 riders. Sometimes a few more or sometimes a few less all depends on riders availability. We’ve hosted camps with as few as 16, all the way to 60 riders. For us, 40 riders give or take is great size. *Quality control is always guaranteed and our number one priority.
Daily Activities | City Tours
We will be traveling thru many cities in Southern Spain. Some we will do group skates and others we will just walk and be tourists!! We will have a full staff around at all times ensuring that the groups stay together and no one wonders off alone ever. Our Younger Campers are not allowed to go to shops and buy things alone, They will always be accompanied by Camp Staff Adults. We will be visiting many beaches, and fresh water lakes. You should know how to swim. We will do some small adventures and walks thru the mountains visiting ancient megalithic ruins and other outdoor activities. Don’t worry it’s a very basic walk at a higher altitude. The most basic hiker can do it with ease! Proper Shoes should be worn/brought, flip flops are not allowed during the days of walking in the mountains.
