    Karate Day Camp is almost upon us! Running from Monday, August 4 through Friday, August 8, this is a great opportunity for fun and dojo bonding. Sign up now to secure your spot.

    • Camp is available to everyone, even children not currently attending USA Karate Academy. This means the campers do NOT spend 7 hours training in kata and kumite. There’s a heavy element of fun.
    • A typical day includes games, crafts, and karate. We go outside, watch the occasional movie, and bond as a group. Lesson plans differ by day, so there’s always something new and exciting.
    • We have discounts. The second student you enroll is charged 50 percent less than the first. We’re also offering an Early Bird Discount, if you sign up before August 1, the first student’s fee is discounted $25. For a family of 2, these discounts add up to over $100!
    • If we don’t have enrollment of at least 10 students by August 1, camp will be cancelled.
