With the three different themes combined into one week, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
Week 4: July 26th to July 30th - Wild Water Week!
Our Wild Water Week is all about WATER! Pack a spare change of clothes because we will get drenched with all our wonderful activities to keep us cool in the summer. We will learn the importance of hydration, the natural water cycle of the planet and also daily water gun battles! With all that plus our regular AWESOME games, activities, and daily martial arts lessons, your child will be exhausted by the end of the day but striving to come back for more!

This week is about all things HERO! The children will learn about the traits and characteristics of a hero and about behaving in ways that they can be proud of by participating in goal setting workshops. The campers will also be engaging in some superhero-style physical training, create superhero disguises, and get to dress up like their favourite superheroes (ones that already exist, or a brand new one - be creative!). They will receive visits from a few real life superheroes!
Week 6: Aug 9th to Aug 13th - Star Wars
This week, in a galaxy not so far away, young padawans begin their Jedi training! Throughout the week the kids will train their bodies and their minds on their journey toward becoming Jedi Knights. This will include making their own lightsabers, Jedi physical training, and working on understanding the darkside by participating in an anti-bullying workshops focusing on compassion and friendship. As our field trip this week, the padawans will head (in 12 parsecs or less) to Science Timmins and learn about the cosmos! When the dojo falls under Imperial attack, led by Darth Vader himself, the new Jedi defend their dojo and fight for the galaxy’s freedom!

Gracie Game Day
Gracie Game Day happens every two months and is absolutely free to our younger members. There is only one catch. They must earn their way in!
Gracie Game Day is part of our Character Development Program. The program consists of six chapters: Responsibility, Health, Respect, Citizenship, Manners, and Caring. We spend two months on each chapter. In every class, we discuss the featured character trait for 10-15 minutes, emphasising the simple things your child can do to make it a part of their life. The kids use our unique point-based system to gain enough points to qualify to attend Gracie Game Day. This system is a powerful incentive for kids and a useful tool for parents to develop positive behaviour at home and school. Gracie Game Day is so much fun that parents will often put on a uniform just so they can join the party!
