RSMA Summer Camp 2018!

An awesome summer experience for your child! New students will learn basic martial arts techniques and current students will have the opportunity to advance their skills and learn some new moves. All students will participate in confidence and teamwork drills, learn self-defense, play fun games and make new friends. Special activities and crafts will be included to go along with the theme of the week. Don’t let your child sit around at home all summer! Now in it’s fifth year, the RSMA Summer Camp program has an excellent track record for providing a fun, safe experience for kids and teens in our community. Of course at RSMA we strive to improve each year – so this year WILL be better than ever!!

Remember your child can come for one week or all summer – or any number of camps in between!! Our popular camps FILLED UP last summer, so get in touch and get your kids signed-up today!!!

·       Camp is available for ages 5 – 13. Four year olds may come with an older sibling only.

·       Leadership roles available for your teen (14-17); camp is free of charge if they qualify. See Ms. Chriztie for more details, we have a limited number of spots open.

·       Camp hours are 8:30am – 4:00pm. Extended hours run from 7:30am – 5:30pm for an additional cost. If you need hours outside those offered please contact Ms. Chriztie.

·       Campers who are staying after camp (4:00 – 5:30) will have the option of participating in a full karate class from 4:15 – 5:00 on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, in which they can earn stripes and class credit towards their next belt. Perfect for after school students who wish to continue their normal classes during the summer, or kids who are usually too tired for evening karate after a full day of camp. Tuesday and Thursday will be run as After Care, where kids will be able to relax and have free play until pick-up. ***Note: We will not run After Camp Karate classes during the Karate Class and Karate Games Camp, since we will have already had two full classes each day on those weeks***

June 18th – June 22nd  

                  NERF Wars I!

It’s easy to see why this has been our most popular camp the past five years in a row – who doesn’t love NERF guns!?! Bring your high-energy kid to this camp to let them run off steam and engage in some good, old-fashioned rough fun! Lots of free play is intermingled with plenty of structured activities and games. Kids will also learn what it takes to be a NERF soldier with new survival games and tactics. If you’ve got a little one, don’t worry – we maintain an inclusive environment, with special games for our little shooters and protective goggles to help them feel safe.

 

June 25th – June 29th

                  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimate Tools I

Master the arts of TMNT in this special tool-oriented camp. We will start off Monday by learning the basics of Ninjutsu and how to duel wield katanas like the turtles tactical leader, Leonardo. Tuesday will be spent honing our comedic instincts and swinging nunchucks like our favorite funny guy, Michelangelo. Wednesday we will be tech savvy engineers as we design a crime-fighting gadget and learn how to roll and strike with bo staffs like Donatello. Thursday we will rock the sai like Raphael, and we will finish off with some advanced Ninjutsu techniques on Friday as we put all of our skills together to become Master Splinter! Each day we will also learn a little bit about the artists our favorite turtles are named after, and we will also have a pizza party on Friday!

 

July 2nd – July 6th (NO CAMP JULY 4TH)

                  Karate Olympics

Fresh off of the 2018 Winter Olympics, RSMA will host its own Karate Olympics! During this week, campers will play home designed variations of Olympic sports, as well as running fun martial arts competitions (groups will be broken down by age and experience). Campers will be competing for small prizes and medals they will make themselves. This week will also feature extra outside time with special outside only games and competitions.

 

July 9th – July 13th

                  Jedi Knight Training Academy (Star Wars)

Another RSMA special and camp favorite, this year we’ve got some brand new activities to take your favorite Jedi’s training to the next level! Each kid will get to make their own pool noodle lightsaber to take home. We will run LOTS of lightsaber duels and learn lightsaber moves based on real sword moves. Of course at RSMA, star wars also refers to our favorite suction cup star game – which we play lots of in all of our time tested variations.

 

July 16th – July 20th

                  Spy Another Day

Do you have what it takes to be the next 007? Find out in our state of the art, top-secret spy camp. Learn special investigation techniques, go undercover, and test your skills by solving a cryptogram puzzle. We will also go over sneaky takedowns, and we will have TWO days of our yarn laser maze, with new activities to go along with it!

July 30th – August 3rd

                  Defend Yourself

Our special self-defense week will feature age appropriate defense techniques designed to be easily implemented and to keep your kids safe. We will cover “avoid when possible, check when you cannot avoid, and lastly, defend when you cannot avoid or check,” from our white belt creed. Campers will also be exposed to our complete Verbal Judo program, designed to defend from bullies. RSMA is proud to be able to run this camp and we feel that this information is especially important in light of the recent abduction attempts in Cecil County.

 

August 6th – August 10th  

                  Super Samurai

Become the ultimate Japanese warrior during our Super Samurai week! Learn the basic cuts and some traditional sword forms, then make up your own and test it in battle!
