2019 SUMMER CAMP
WHY CHOOSE RAISE LEADERS?
Our camp to counselor ratio is 1:8 for the juniors group (ages 6-8) and 1:10 for the seniors group (ages 9-14). We also have a leadership team member assigned to each counselor. We strive to provide our campers with a positive and individualized experience. Having a small camp allows us to help campers develop confidence, make friends and practice leadership. (In Florida, the law requires a 25:1 camper to counselor ratio).
Safety is paramount at Raise Leaders. All camp counselors must pass a nationwide background and drug screening and must hold current CPR certification. Our counselors are trained as mentors and participate in leadership training to ensure that campers have a positive experience.
Transportation: We transport campers in fully air-conditioned 15 Passenger Ford E-350 vans. Each camper is required to wear a seat belt. We have booster seats available for our smaller campers. Our drivers are subject to rigorous criminal background checks and must have clean driving records. Fun fact: You probably know our drivers! We hire drivers with a family relation to the Raise Leaders program, so more than likely their kids are campers with your kids!
Our camp is ACTIVE - Our campers run, kick, jump, sweat, train and play every day. TKD kids are fit kids and the summer is the best time to enhance fitness and martial arts skill levels. Our campers receive at least 2 to 4 hours of physical activity each day exceeding Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) standards.
Our camp is FUN - Our campers have a blast everyday! We go on daily field trips, teach exciting martial arts classes (like board breaking and jump kicks), play team sports at the park (yes, we love soccer).
Our camp is FRIENDLY - Our campers develop friendships that last a lifetime in a positive, motivating environment. Components of our curriculum include anti-bullying and the value of friendship.
Our camp promotes LEADERSHIP - Our campers say yes ma'am and yes sir and participate in group discussions about leadership, courtesy, integrity and responsibility.
WHAT TO BRING TO CAMP - Campers will need water, snacks, lunch, a camp t-shirt and sneakers. Sunblock must be worn and should be brought for reapplication throughout the day.
No previous training is necessary, all levels Beginner+ are welcome to attend. Our camp best suits children ages 6-12 (please inquire about our camp program for 5 year olds and our leadership program for children older than 12).
DEPOSITS AND FEES A $75/child, non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your child’s spot in camp. This fee will cover the cost of 2 camp t-shirts and a water bottle.
