Summer camp program
burbank SUmmer camp program
Burbank Pa Kua is offering an exciting roster of summer programs. Campers will spend time practicing and learning many different martial arts skills including archery, long sticks, and swords. These techniques will help campers develop focus, discipline, strength, coordination, and self confidence, all while having fun! We will also have games, obstacle courses, dodge ball, and some chill time too. In 2024, we are offering 4 different weeks, each with a different theme. They are: Stick Week, Archery Week, Sword Week & Battle Week.
This year we are hosting half day camps, from 9am (8:45 drop off) through 12pm. Each week will end with a demonstration.
Stick Week (Long Staff, Bo, Short Sticks / Escrima) – July 1st – 5th (Closed Thursday July 4th) – $200
Learn to spin and strike with a long staff, fight with two sticks, catapult yourself into the air with a stick! Each camper will get their own long stick, made just for their height and size, that they will get to take home at the end of the week. We will have a demonstration at the end of the week for family and friends.
Archery Week (Traditional Chinese Archery) – July 8th – 12th – $250
Learn or return to Traditional Chinese archery! We will learn basic shooting day 1, and then get a little more complex throughout the week ending with obstacles and moving targets!
Sword Week (Chinese Broadsword and dual broadswords) – July 15th – 19th – $250
Traditional Chinese broad sword and dual wielding broadsword. Learn to move, strike, block, and fight techniques. We will have some light sparring with foam swords at the end of the week as well.
Battle Week, July 22nd – 26th: $250
Step into the shoes of your favorite heroes! This week is all about safe simulated combat both one on one and on teams. Think of it as a live action RPG. Battle Week is only recommended for campers who don’t mind the impact of a semi-soft foam sword. In Battle Week, campers will learn to develop skills such as respect, teamwork, and communication.
Each camp is held from 8:45am-12pm and is available for kids ages 6-13. Classes take place indoors in our air conditioned studio, except Battle week in which we go to Griffith Manor Park. There will be healthy snacks and drinks. Campers should bring their own water bottle, and extra snacks just in case.
Let us help you get started on your martial arts journey!
