Who says you can’t be a fierce warrior AND a skilled artist?! Not the Samurai!
Camp Japan is a unique day camp combining martial arts, art and culture. Taught by black belts, artists, musicians, professional educators and more, we offer hands-on experiences for all the five senses. Hosted at a state-of-the-art martial arts dojo, we also go on fun-filled field trips to local museums and parks. Campers bond in an immersive experience for the mind, body and heart, expanding their skills in creativity, fitness, coordination, self-defense, cooperation, leadership, focus and reflection while exploring and having fun!
