In May of 2003, 16 people joined two instructors at
Zephyr’s Learn-to-Skate Camp on Hilton Head Island,
South Carolina. They ranged in age from 33 to 73 and
traveled from all over - Hawaii, Colorado, New York City,
Chicago, Oklahoma, New Jersey, Florida and British Columbia.
Some came with a spouse and others arrived not knowing a
soul. How, and more importantly, why did they wind up at skate camp?
For some, the flame of possibility was ignited by an
article in Shape magazine written by a previous
skate "camper". One person heard about camp from a
friend. Others discovered Learn-to-Skate Camps on
the Internet. But despite their differences in age,
previous experience and backgrounds (four accountants,
an audiologist, a physician, an engineer, a developer,
an administrative assistant and two attorneys,
among others) they all had the same goal:
"I want to know how to skate!"
