Vegetarian Kung Fu Camps for Kids


The Academy of Kung Fu runs "Wellness Day Camps" for students grades K-8 during PPS Inservice Days and Spring Break week. Run by elementary school teachers dedicated to offering quality enrichment opportunities on school down days, these mixed-age camps keep kids moving and engaged in literacy, gardening, sewing, crafting, and vegetarian/vegan snack activities. While the focus lies primarily on Kung Fu, students are exposed to various other art forms through high-quality instruction in outside movement arts (such as yoga, fencing, futsal, crossfit, gymnastics, capoeria, archery, aikido, and acrobatics). All levels of experience welcome!

I highly reccomend this school. My children are 6 and 10, and Wally and Lara are great with them. They have age appropriate activities and lessons. My children both love the school and beg to go to summer camps and during teacher planning days at school. The kids are encouraged to do their best and pushed in a very positive way. While there is a lot of time spent on Kung Fu, there are a lot of other activities blended into the day: gymnastics, dragon dance, coloring, sewing, etc. The cost of the day camp is very affordable and the teaching is outstanding.

My daughter has been adverse to group sports, it just hasn't been a good fit. Her involvement for a year+ at the Kung Fu Academy has been great, including in helping her understand the importance of good nutrition to maintain her strength. The staff are wonderfully supportive, and the atmosphere -- while disciplined -- is warm and friendly. I expect my child will happily attend for years to come.
