Not everybody knows that we have some rock’in summer camps for kids and teens here at “The Cave”. There are two camps remaining for the 2012 season, one coming up on August 6th-10th, which is a Parkour Camp headed up by our Parkour Director Ryder Darcy, and another Gymnastics Camp August 13th-17th. Sign-ups for the Parkour camp may be closing on Monday July 30th, so please hurry to sign up if you are interested. The camps run from 10am-2pm Monday through Friday. The kids can be signed up for one, all five, or any combination of days for the week. Also pre-registering at least a month in advance is less expensive than the week before camp!
Earlier this month I ran what may have been the most awesome summer camp ever-ever-ever July 9th-13th. It was, of course, a “Ninja Camp” with an American Ninja Warrior Theme. We had 6 American Ninja Warrior Veterans guest coaching including David Campbell, Travis Fulanic, JB Douglass, Andrey Pfening, the illustrious Tom Hutchman, and of course, myself, Andres De la Rosa (Amadraeus). Our coaches poured an enormous amount of creativity and passion into the exercises, drills, games and obstacle courses set out for the kids as well as imparting part of the philosophy of parkour and Ninja Warrior which encircles the themes of:
1> “To be strong and to be useful.”
2> “With great power comes great responsibility.”
3> “We’re here to improve ourselves together” and last but not least
4> “Stay safe and be a good judge of your limits.”
Overall the kids were extraordinarily well behaved and had a great time. Here are a couple of pictures and a video of our awesome little group:

We also have “Survival Camps” run by our self-defense and CrossFit coach, Nick Wise. Although there won’t be another Ninja or Survival Camp until probably next year, both our parkour and gymnasics camps are great fun for the kids. After all, The Cave is the perfect place to get stronger, get skilled, have fun, and make friends! And even if your schedule doesn’t quite work out for our two remaining camps this year, there is always Kid’s Night Out as well even throughout the school year on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month from 5:30-10pm! Please call “The Cave’s” front desk for pricing or more information.
Cheers- I hope everyone is having a great summer!
