CamXpo 2021!

The patch for the CamXpo 2021, a martial arts summer camp

 We are very excited to be able to offer a summer event this year!  

In a typical summer, we hold several events: a weekend-long, family-centered, convention-style Summer Expo in a mountain resort and a sleepaway Summer Camp for students ages 9 and up. This year, we are going to run a hybrid event with aspects of both.

There are several options for participation in this event.  The entire event for summer campers will take place from July 29th - August 1st.  There is an option for families to join us July 30th - August 1st for a more Expo style experience.  The event will take place at the Snow Mountain Ranch, YMCA of the Rockies in Granby, Colorado.

Campers: 7/29 - 8/1
Students ages 9 and up are invited to the camp portion of the event.  These students will arrive on Thursday 7/29 and stay on site at Snow Mountain Ranch in the cabins or lodges for the entire event.  This event will be like camp: we will stay together, work out together, meals will be provided, etc.  This portion of the event does have a limited capacity, and we will honor students who register and pay the deposit on a first come, first serve basis.  Students who register as campers will be set for the entire weekend as far as lodging, food and supervision. 

Family Weekend: 7/30 - 8/1
This event is open to all students.  This portion of the event is structured more like our typical Expo, and families who attend this event are responsible for their own lodging and meals.  Families of younger students will come up with their students.  Students will participate in classes Friday evening, throughout the day Saturday and Sunday morning.  There will be a celebration on Saturday evening as well.  Outside of class time, there will not be extra supervision for younger students, and families will need to come and pick their students up (this is not the case for students doing the entire camp as detailed above).

There is no limit on the number of students who can attend this event; however, please be aware that lodging at Snow Mountain Ranch, in Granby and in Winter Park is filling fast for the weekend.

Students and families who choose this option will need to make their own lodging reservations.
