As recreation professionals prepare for summer, they often look to new and exciting activities or products that will help boost summer camp registration numbers. Camp and program directors are regularly faced with making a decision between purchasing one new product or another because of the all too familiar term, “tight budget.” Recreation centers and summer camps pride themselves on the variety of activities or sports they offer, but as a result of the”tight budget” they, unfortunately have to cut a few from their list.
What if rec professionals could offer that full variety of activities without going over their budget? What if you could play Gaga in the morning and floor hockey in the afternoon with the same product? What if just ONE product would allow summer programs to add dozens of activities?
Here at Sport Resource Group, we have the answer: ProWall. ProWall has been used at summer camps, JCCs, YMCAs, schools, rec centers, Boys & Girls Clubs, etc. to add:
ProWall’s ability to be re-shaped and re-sized by any camp counselor or rec director makes it an easy choice.
No tools. No mess. No budget crunching. Just one product that provides endless options for weeks of fun.

In early 2013, the Cheshire Community YMCA (Cheshire, CT) was looking for a new, trendy, energetic activity to add to their facility, Michelle, Program Director, decided Gaga was the solution. After searching on-line, she found SRG and our ProWall® Gaga Pits. Michelle took her YMCA’s Gaga game to a whole new level! She needed a Gaga pit that was:
Immediately upon the arrival of the pit, Gaga became a huge success as one of the most popular games at the Y. “It was EASY to set up and the kids LOVE it!” said Michelle. The pit is currently set up outdoors for their summer camp programs and will be moved indoors in the fall to keep kids active during the winter.

Indoor roller skating, a tradition that began there at the beginning of the 1970′s, is brought back to the city of Cape May in New Jersey. It began in 1972 in hopes of creating an activity to get kids off the streets (Degener). The idea took, and the roller skating rink remained a popular place for kids over the past 4 decades.
Over the years, however, the makeshift railings and hardwood floor got worn down. It was time for a change. After a six-month search, the city found hard bamboo flooring that can accommodate roller skates without damage (Degener). They also sought out SRG’s ProWall Dasher Board System to use to enclose the rink. This system now gives them the ability to quickly take down the rink system if they have other events in the Convention Hall.
Thus far, the renovated roller skating rink seems to be a success! The mayor of Cape May, Ed Mahaney, reported that “since opening on Jan. 18, the rink has been drawing 200 to 225 people per session” (Degener). He also said, “it is projected to bring in between $42,000 and $70,000 a year, with expenses likely less than that” (Degener).
The city of Cape May now gets plenty of use out of their convention hall with the use of the portable ProWall Dasher Boards. Mahaney said there have already been cases where it was removed to accommodate ballroom dancing classes. The mayor said it is so easy to install, the city may even have some roller skating during the summer on rainy days when nothing is scheduled in the hall (Degener).
SRG was happy to help bring Indoor Roller Skating back to the families of Cape May!
