Summer camps at NWIMAA are a fun, safe, and structured environment where your child can learn, play, and explore! Each day includes time for free play, group play, quiet time, crafts/science experiments, and 2 martial arts classes!



Martial Arts Classes

All NWIMAA summer camps include 2 martial arts classes per day for a total of 10 martial arts classes per week! This amount of concentrated focus on the martial arts will translate into improved physical fitness and martial arts skill as well as confidence, discipline, and respect.


Leadership Training

Each day will include 15 minutes of leadership training! Campers will discuss different topics related to being a leader and practice their leadership skills with their peers.


Play Time

Each day will include time for supervised free and group play. Play allows the children to socialize and interact with their peers without the use of technology. NWIMAA has plenty of indoor and outdoor space for play.



Field Trips

Each week of summer camp includes a field trip. The field trips will include local parks, splash pads, museums, and more!
