Spring Camp 2019

8th  – 10th March 2019

Welcome to Parkwood Scout Camp, a new venue for Camp 2019!
This year our March camp will be held at Parkwood Scout Camp. This is another new venue for us, with some fantastic outside and inside areas to train in.

I’ve not been to camp before, what can I expect?
Lots of Karate training (outdoor and indoor), lots of focused practice, time to reflect, learn and meditate, lots of fun enjoying the new experiences this venue has to offer.

Expect the unexpected….. and try something new.

Should I be concerned about my grade / fitness levels?
No, camp has something to offer everyone. You will be challenged more so than when training in the dojo, but camp is varied to suit everyone’s fitness and ability.  If you have any concerns, please talk to your instructor.

Are there any age / grade restrictions?

  • The training camp is open to everyone over the age of 14 years. For students aged 13, please discuss potential attendance directly with your instructor.
