Welcome to CAMP!
Park Dojo Summer Camp 2022 is here! Please review the following information prior to your child's first day of camp. If you have any questions, feel free to email us OR text Coach Alyssa directly (# below).
ParK Dojo summer camp is a fun, empowering martial arts camp for kids in Charlotte. The camp has a very "free play" vibe, allowing kids to choose their activities and help build the schedule throughout the day. We have posted the camp schedule below, but note it can change depending on things like weather or camper interest.
- Please send your child to camp in their water clothes. This can be swim shorts and a rashguard, or bathing suit under a t-shirt. Due to the minimal shade at the park, we recommend rashguard swim shirts, preferably long sleeve.
- Sunscreen. Please send your child to camp with sunscreen applied. We will also help reapply if needed throughout the day.
- One extra change of clothes
- Water bottle (a must!)
- Hat (optional)
- Closed toe water shoes (ie crocs, keens)

For pick-up and drop-off, enter the parking lot off of 9th street directly across from UNCC. Head around back until you see a gate (playground inside the gate). Park anywhere nearby and walk your child to the gate. We will have counselors there to greet your child. Text us if you have any trouble finding the location on your first day.
Summer Camp will be run by Coach Alyssa, founder and head instructor for Park Dojo. She is a 4th degree black belt in Taekwondo, purple belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu and has over 15 years experience of teaching martial arts to children. Professor Marlon will also be assisting with the martial arts class each day. He is a 3rd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu and 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo. He has three kids of his own and is great at empowering the kids in an empowering and positive way.
We will have 2-3 teen counselors who have been working with us over the years. They help with walking us to the park as a group, opening lunch items, and uplifting the spirits of the campers throughout the day.
