Summer Camps at The Dojo American Karate Centers are the most exciting, informative programs of their kind! Broken down into two-week themes, students are engaged throughout each day in 30-minute activity rotations. Martial arts class, gymnastics, arts/crafts, sparring, forms, cultural and language studies, movie time and games/relays match the template of each theme. Sessions range from "Panda Fu" (China), "Samurai vs. Ninja" (Japan), "The King and Thai" (Southeast Asia) and even "Jedi Academy" (sci-fi and the martial arts behind it) are all part of the educational format that exceeds every expectation. Span history and the continents with a dozen martial arts systems. Counselor/Camper ratios are an astounding 1:5 to benefit the learning experience. Our Camp Director has been teaching martial arts in our community school systems and running summer camp for well over a decade. Our kids love it so much that they return every year!
