Study the ancient martial arts of Shaolin Kung Fu and grow in confidence, discipline, and respect for themselves and those around them.
HealthKick Kung Fu Full Day Summer Camp is a program offered to all interested in Chicago, IL.
Looking for a summer camp experience that will:
Build your child’s confidence? Give your child a sense of accomplishment? Improve your child’s athletic dexterity? Teach your child discipline and self-control?
The exercises provides a full body workout that will enhance health and vigor. They require concentration and focus, which will help them learn mental discipline. An emphasis is placed on avoiding physical confrontations when necessary, providing your child with the skill to successfully negotiate aggressive behavior.
A goal is set for children to move up to the next sash level by the end of the nine weeks.
Whether your child is new to the program, or already an enrolled student, they have an end result in sight as they attend the camp. Along with the Kung Fu curriculum, children will periodically go on trips to the park, zoo and lake. Other activities are introduced as a means to help them deepen their understanding of martial arts.
HealthKick Kung Fu FULL DAY Summer Camp for Kids starts in Lincoln Park. Once HALF-DAY Camp pick up is completed, we make our way back to our school on Larrabee. Camp participants have an hour lunch and quiet time. In the afternoon, we delve deeper into all aspects of Shaolin training and hold discussion groups on some of these topics. We do simple chores to learn how to work responsibly with each other as both work leaders and team members. We then continue the physical training. Pick up is at our Larrabee location.
During inclement weather, Camp is held indoors.
Children new to Camp must purchase and wear the Summer Camp shorts and T-Shirt.
They must wear the appropriate footwear that fits securely on the foot (No flip-flops!).
Uniform fee ($100) includes: T-shirt, shorts and one weapon.
Food is not provided, so children must also have a bag or box lunch with them.
A Sash Promotion will be held at the end of the nine weeks. At that time, family members and loved ones can see what your child has learned and join in celebrating their accomplishments.
