ABOUT THE CAMP
Confidence. Discipline. Self-Respect. Compassion. Grit.
The Shaolin Summer Camp at the USA Shaolin Temple offers the first full time annual martial arts camp in the United States or Canada. Regardless of their previous martial arts experience, youth from the ages of 11-17 can achieve the amazing benefits of rigorous Shaolin training: you will train physically, mentally, and spiritually. The campers will build new relationships with a diverse group of peers as they engage in daily training activities and explore the culture of the famous Shaolin Temple as it applies to our modern times. The Upstate Shaolin Temple lives within the majestic surroundings of the Catskill mountains in New York. Besides training in the core disciplines of Shaolin (Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Qi Gong), each camper’s experience will be enriched by activities such as Chan Philosophy, Chinese language, calligraphy, art, journaling, nature hikes, and other sports and outdoor excursions. All meals, room and board are provided, as well as training sneakers and a t-shirt.
Check out what real campers are saying about it:
Keep going, never give up to get where you need to be and keep improving, until you reach perfection. This doesn’t only apply to kung fu training but applies to everything in life. This camp reminds me of that because I know I can be better…so why shouldn’t I be?
We build really strong bonds with each other. Unlike other camps where when it finishes you might not even talk to your fellow campers again, here, these people are your family now
I’ve learned you really have to push yourself if you want to succeed and try to get better. No one can do it for you because it’s YOU trying to make a difference for yourself
It’s really about learning to find the balance between physical and mental. It’s something that’s very hard to find, but very easy to find at this camp.
I came here expecting to learn kung fu, and I did learn kung fu. But what’s more important is that I learned about myself, how to polish myself & really become the best person that I can be.
