AKDW Karate Camps 2016

This page has pictures from the 2016 AKDW Summer Karate Camps. While an attempt is always made to get pictures of as many activities as possible, not all are able to be covered. Camp provides the students the opportunity to participate in many activities not possible in regular classes and to meet and interact with students and instructors from other classes.

A series of thumbnail pictures are given here. To see individual pictures in a larger size, click on the picture, then use your browser's "Back" button to return to this page.

The following is a satellite picture of the camp grounds. We have a rather extensive area comprised of open areas, wooded, and wetlands which provide numerous sources for activities.

General Pictures from the 2016 Karate Camps

The following pictures were taken at both the Children's and Adult Camps, but are general camp pictures and are not associated with either camp, but just general.

Children's Camps (Day & Junior, Saturday & Sunday, June 4 & 5, 2016)

Gate Security is a standard fixture at all camps and monitors everyone entering and leaving the camp area. All campers sign in and learn where to go to start their camp experience. A group picture is taken of all those in attendance: campers, instructors, and assistants.

Day Campers

Day Camp, ages 6-9, Saturday, June 4, 2016

The day campers had an enjoyable day in a number of activities, which included the PRT (Physical Readiness Training) Course, Combat Course, the ropes courses, and other projects.

Junior Camp, ages 10 - 13, Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5, 2016

The boys find a bunk and stow their equipment in the Black Belt Men's building. The girls use the Black Belt Women's building. Camp starts with the bow-in for students and instructors. Then, off to classes: S.A.F.E Program (Self Awareness For Everyone), basic forms, kicking, combat course, self-defense, PRT, Project Triangle, etc. For those staying overnight, special activities are done after dinner, and perhaps even a movie. Sunday morning, students attend the final classes, then bow-out and depart from camp. Most students believe that a dirty uniform by the end of camp is a badge of honor showing just how hard they worked in the classes and especially in he combat course.

Adult Camp, June 23, 24, 25, & 26, 2016

The weather cooperated, and everyone had a wonderful time. Some of the activities were: bow-in, project triangle, falling, kicking, archery, the new high elements, S.A.F.E. Program, weapons classes, combat course, etc., and even an evening of fireworks for entertainment.
