What Will My Child Do in a Day?

When we designed our summer camp, we took into consideration healthy child development and structured our camp’s schedule to be very dynamic and age-appropriate so that your child is never bored!

While we are a martial arts themed camp, our children’s summer camp will offer your child a lot more than just martial arts.  A typical day also involves campers actively engaging in crafts, outdoor play, structured games, and much more.

In addition, everyday has a highlight activity that your child will love such as field trips, movie days, or visiting a splash pad.  To wrap up the week is a demonstration where children can show off their ninja moves to their parents!

Limited Spots Available! Do not let your child miss out on this opportunity!

FAQs

How is your camp different form any other camp?

Our camp coordinator studies child development and is passionate about bringing the principle of healthy child development to her camp environment.   Through the implementation of these principles, she is able to create an environment where kids can feel comfortable and secure to play, learn, and most importantly have fun!

What type of Martial Arts will my child learn?

Since we are a mixed martial arts school, your child will get a taste of a few different martial arts such as grappling, striking and katas!  This makes is a great intro for a child who has never tried martial arts or a new experience for those who already train in one type of martial arts!

What if my child has never done martial arts before

That is not a problem!   All of our lessons in camp are beginner friendly.  In fact the week, is a great way for your child to try out martial arts without any commitments!

Why should my child participate in your camp?

Our camp offers an amazing, well rounded summer experience.  Too often our children spend their summers indoors or staring at a device.  In contrast, at our camp, your child will get to experience everything such as martial arts, crafts, outdoor play and exploring different areas of Toronto.

What will my child need for the camp?

Everyday your child will need to bring 2 lunches and a snack.  On special days during the week they might need to bring other supplies such as a swimsuit.
