About Our Summer Camps
If your child is ready for a great summer camp experience, welcome to Wushu Central Martial Arts Academy. Our summer camps are one-week adventures that will thrill your children!
There's Something for Everyone!
We pack an incredible variety of learning activities for children into every camp day here. From Kung Fu lessons, to sword fighting, to gymnastics, and everything in between - your child will have tremendous and unforgettable fun! In fact, most of our campers are repeat students who attend year after year.
Here are just some of the exciting things your child can look forward to:
Kung Fu: Each week we teach a unique Kung Fu style. Whether it's Tiger style or Drunken fist, Monkey style or Tai Chi, your child will learn something truly special. As a bonus, the last day of camp features a Final Performance, in which they will perform their new form for you!
Padded Weapons: Children will learn ancient Chinese sword fighting techniques by practicing drills and playing fun games, all with safe padded swords. This is a great team building experience too!
Tumbling: Beginning with basic gymnastic postures and rolls, we'll progress toward cartwheels, handsprings, and flips. All of this is taught with tumbling soft mats and safety equipment.
Life Lessons: Our life lessons component is central to our philosophy and concentrates on building life skills including courage, perseverance, self esteem, self control, self discipline and other important characteristics. Many of our lessons use story telling to set the tone and generate discussion, and are reinforced through roleplaying.
Wushu Adventures: A Wushu Central Exclusive!
For children with an interest in fantasy and creativity, our summer camp features Wushu Adventures. Wushu Adventures combines martial arts teachings with supervised play where children act out the adventures of their favorite heroes and superheroes. Here are some of our Wushu Adventure games:
Kung Fu Panda Tournament: Compete to be the best of the best utilizing the whole array of Chinese martial arts padded weaponry, including swords, daggers, shields, staffs, spears, and even bow and arrows. The winner of each round gets to square off against Po, the Kung Fu Panda himself!
The Trojan War: Relive one of the most legendary battles from ancient history! Become a mythic hero like Achilles or Ajax and storm the walls of Troy, using ancient Greek weapons like the shield and spear. Or be a brave Trojan and defend your city from the invading Greek armies, using your swords, catapults and bows to keep them at bay.
Jedi Knight: Be a Jedi Knight like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, Adi Gallia, Mace Windu or Luke Skywalker in all out Star Wars battles. Fight the lords of the dark side and face off against Darth Maul, the evil Count Dooku, and dark lord puppets General Grievous, Boba Fett and the army of the clones.
Dragon’s Lair: Warriors travel from across the sea on a quest to snatch the king’s treasure. They will return to their kingdoms as heroes if they can get past the dragon (played by an instructor). Student warriors wield nothing but a (padded) sword and a heart of courage, and must work as a team to be victorious.
Pirates of the Caribbean: You get to be Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, and Elizabeth Swann in an all out battle for supremacy of the high seas. Kids will face buccaneers, bandits and a cannon!
Samurai vs. Ninja: Who will you be? A powerful samurai, who has dedicated his life to mastering the sword and becoming a fearless warrior? Or will you be a ninja, cunning and stealthy, who uses tricks, spells and exotic weapons to complete the mission. You choose your destiny.
Superhero Battle Royale: What happens when Superman meets Wolverine? Or when Batman battles Lex Luther? Anything is possible in the ultimate superhero match-up, where kids get to dress up as their favorite hero or villain and do battle in the Labyrinth of Valor!
