What are the hours of camp?

Camp goes from 9am-5pm (early drop off at 8:30am is available for an additional fee, late pick up is also available)

What does a typical day look like?

The kids have between 3-4 formal martial arts classes as well as learning valuable skills such as anti-bullying, anger management, leadership skills, sports, and community service.  They also do art lessons, and go outdoors to parks everyday.  Every Friday we end the week with a big celebration and party.  The camps are very structured, and a lot of fun.  Parents tell us they love that their kids are happy, and very tired.  A great way to get a introduction to martial arts or to get a leg up on your current martial arts training.

 

What is the youngest age that they can participate in summer camp?

The youngest age for camp is 5 years old.  If you are interested in having a younger child do martial arts we recommend that they try our Little Dragon program which starts at age 3.  We have counselor in training program available for teens.
