Join one of Arlington's most exciting Summer Camps. Your kids will learn some kung fu, unleash their creativity, and make some new friends.
Students start and end the day with Kung Fu class. Regardless of level, they all will aim to reach their first/next stripe during a special test at the end of the week.
Animal Style Kung Fu
Kids in our summer camp learn Kung Fu....lots of it! They learn the animal styles of Tiger, Crane, Mantis, Monkey and Bird (Eagle) that are not only fun, but develop strength, flexibility and coordination.
Just for kicks, we'll also break out the kick shields, benches, jump ropes and cones to create obstacle courses that challenge the mind and body.
We are inspired by the things we find in nature so we spend some quality time outside every day at Barcroft Park. Students learn how to use their natural surroundings for testing their strength, balance and awareness. To further our connection with our environment, we make up teams and try to discover how the 5-elements are present all around us.
Thursday is our water day. We will use a large water vessel to practice the traditional "water slapping" technique. Your child will need either a swimsuit or a set of dry clothes and a beach towel.
