It’s time to start planning for summer and sign up for 2021Summer Camps – and we have some exciting new changes!
This year, each session will have a different theme, giving focus to our main activities for that week.
As always, Summer Camp students will have a chance to immerse themselves in the techniques, history, philosophy and practice of traditional martial arts. Our week-long sessions for kids and teens run from 9 am to 4 pm, with opportunities for one-on-one instruction and special topics; reading and videos; “swim day” mid-week (Covid permitting); a martial-arts-related art or craft project guaranteed fun for all ages; outdoor time and more.
There are three sessions to choose from, with the chance of another “pop-up” if there is sufficient interest. A fourth session is offered for teens and advanced students only.
Summer Camps are open to all current and former Cuong Nhu students (any dojo), as well as their family and friends, including those who haven’t trained before. Sessions 1 to 3 are open to ages 6* and above. Teens are welcome in these sessions as well, and will have separate activities and leadership opportunities where appropriate. For more details, including costs and how to register or reserve your space, click on any of the camp titles below. *Due to the need to follow Covid hygiene and distancing protocols, we ask that parents of younger students ensure their child is ready to follow detailed instructions and thrive away from their parents for extended periods.
Session 1: June 14-18, 2021 – WEAPONS: Students will learn about the history and practice of traditional martial arts weapons, try out and train with a variety of weapons, choose a “specialty,” and make a practice weapon they can keep.
Session 2: July 19-23, 2021 – RANKING UP: Students will focus on the curriculum they must master to achieve their next belt rank, and will have the opportunity to be promoted at the end of camp if agreed-upon goals are met. (Any student who loves training will enjoy this camp – regardless of ranking up!) Ranking Up camp requires permission of the instructors and a pre-camp conference to set expectations, so register early!
Session 3: August 2-6, 2021 – OPEN THEME: Participants will shape the theme of this camp. We will pursue a fun and challenging mix of martial arts basics, rank requirements, weapons work, individual mat work, and creative training dreamed up by the students.
Advanced/Teen Camp: June 21-25, 2021: This group will choose its own theme, and will pursue a combination of rank-level training, advanced techniques, and special training opportunities only offered at summer camp. It’s open to teen students of any rank, as well as younger students age 10-12 who are ranked Blue Belt or higher, and are ready and willing to train at a high pace.
Covid safety is paramount. At this time, we are taking a conservative approach, and limiting sessions to a maximum of 12 students. When the limit is reached, we will keep a waiting list. As the need for Covid restrictions eases, we may choose to increase the maximum number allowed per session. We reserve the right to cancel a session not reaching a minimum of 10 registrants.
Reserve your space now with a down payment. You may reserve and pay online, or see Christie in the office to take care of it in person. We look forward to your participation! And here are those registration links again:
