Camp WeSC is the UK’s only week long residential skateboard only camp, for just £380 you can spend 5 days and 4 nights down at picturesque Chepstow in Wales, skating with pro’s and taking home a goody bag worth over £250!
For three whole weeks in August, we did just that, hitting up some of the best skateparks in the country. This years coaches were pretty much the UK’s girl dream team, including Josie Millard, Helena Long and Zeta Rush!
Watch our edit below, also featuring campers and mini rippers Zara Cosgrove, Maisie Kelly, Emily Holt, Lauren Davies and Olivia Thomas!
We spent our mornings skating a hidden indoor concrete bowl deep in the heart of the Forest of Dean before heading out to the new Monmouth spot and incredible Cirencester skatepark in the afternoons.
Evenings were spent round the campfire, cooking up burgers on the BBQ, making pizzas (from scratch!) in the outdoor clay pizza oven, spray painting workshops and watching films in the mini ramp cinema room!
Night time skates at Hereford plaza were popular… we managed to get hold of a key for the floodlights so would stay until the first camper started to fall asleep.
On the last night we had a big BBQ party round the campfire for Kierans birthday, with midnight games of skates in the bowl and once we had sent all of the campers to bed, the coaches climbed in to the huge woodfired hot tub for a little down time before the long journey back home the next evening.
It was an amazing few weeks and huge thanks to all of the camp and venue staff, campers, sponsors, drivers, filmers, tea makers and everybody else involved!
Huge gallery of photos to come and loads more footage too so keep checking back!
