Capoeira Karkara Kids Summer Camp 2014
REGISTRATION opens SOON for our BEST CAMP YET!
Give your child a special treat to break up the pressures of the school year. Your child will make memories that will last a lifetime…the kids are still talking all the time about all the great times they’ve had at our previous camps!
Your child will have a blast, getting plenty of exercise and having fun in a positive, nurturing environment. Aside from instruction in capoeira, dance, music, acrobatics, Portuguese Language, yoga and more, we will be doing fun activities, arts and crafts and games and going on field trips to fun places for kids of all ages! Our curriculum is designed to enrich the life of each camper – not only physically, but also mentally and socially.
By the end of summer, your child will be more fit, strong, focused, and respectful with better life-skills and self-confidence. The summer will culminate with our Summer Celebration, a spectacular event that will allow our awesome campers to show their friends, family and community all that they have learned during the summer at Capoeira Karkara.
