Program Description

Our summer camp program is designed for students ages 7 to 16 who range from beginner to black belt. Each one-week program will include 15 hours of kung fu training taught by Mark Carletti (PhD, Tufts University) and Karen Gutterman along with other instructors. With hard work, focus and dedication to practice, a student can accomplish in one week what would normally take one to two months in regular classes during the school year. Students will enjoy themselves with fun activities that develop better focus and concentration; that increase physical coordination, flexibility and confidence; and that help teach patience, respect and discipline.
