Would you like to hone your skate skills while getting to know one of Canada's most lovely cities?

Sign up for Barry Publow's SpeedCamp Ottawa (May 20-28).

The Canadian skate coach and author has designed the 8-day camp with equal amounts of work and play.

Aside from daily technical sessions and video analysis, Publow has scheduled rolling tours of Ottawa, a river cruise, a picnic on Alymer Island, social dinners, a barbecue (at his house) and even some water skiing.

"Aside from being a technical workshop, I really want it to be a fun vacation," the Ottawa native said.

The end of the camp (May 28th) coincides with the National Capital Marathon in Ottawa. So campers, if they choose, will have a chance to show off their new found skills.

The camp costs $399.

Accommodations are extra. The group rate for the Victoria Park Suites hotel downtown is $369 for the week (double occupancy).
