If you want your kids to get off the couch, turn off the TV, and disconnect from their smartphones, there’s no better place to turn this summer than karate camp. AMA karate camps feature low camper-to-leader ratios, highly-qualified leaders, weekly swims, and a weekly day trip. If you have signed your child up for one of our camps, these tips can help prepare your child for the fun to come:
Give Your Child a Preview
The moment you say the words “karate camp,” your kids will probably be bursting with joy and excitement. If they’re a bit nervous because they aren’t sure what to expect, visit our website for an example of a typical week at karate camp. You can also sit down together and watch some of our YouTube videos. Check out our Youth Adventure Camp, where campers go canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, play group games, do leadership training, and hang out around the campfire – with no parents involved.
Meet the Camp Organizers
Shoot us an email or give us a call, and we’d be happy to arrange a meet and greet with the leaders who will be spending the week with your kid. For one, it will help your child feel comfortable, and give them a familiar face when they show up on that first day of camp. You can also use this opportunity to let us know about any of your child’s specific needs or concerns. We want your kid to have an amazing and memorable experience, so the more we know, the better.
Equipping Your Child with Confidence
Even though karate summer camp is an exciting opportunity, it can be a bit of a nerve-wracking prospect for some kids. Have a conversation with your kid and let them express their fears. Communicate with them the importance of confronting our fears and the many rewards that await us when we push through.
What to Expect
Though it matters to you as a parent, kids aren’t going to be too excited by words like skill development, participation, and cooperation. Let them know about the fun things on the menu – karate fun, high-energy games, and a whole bunch of running and screaming. By the time it’s over, they’ll want to sign up for another week right away.
