Desa School of Karate's all day summer camps are back again! With even more improvements, larger spaces, dedicated camp room and more, these camps will be better than ever. Camps run from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm Monday to Friday every weekday (even on holidays) with the exception of our new kickstart camp which is 3 days, 9:00 - 12:00 (see below for more details). Additionally, children who book 2 or more weeks will receive $20 off each week.   

Additionally, please note that parents are responsible for packing lunches and snacks for children. We are a very active camp and recommend that all children pack at least 1-2 snacks and a lunch, water bottles, outerwear, sun screen, and bug spray.


Here's just a glance of what you can expect every week with our summer camps:

  • Everyday will include at least 45 minutes of karate with the opportunity to progress through the ranks and begin working towards a black belt. 

  • A free summer camp shirt for your first week!

  • With designated lunchtime and 2 snack times, your kids will maintain a healthy balance to keep them going. 

  • Weather permitting, we try to play outside in the park and fields (ie. soccer, frisbee etc.) every day. 

  • Guest instructors and helpers to keep everyone engaged. 

  • Bully Self Defense classes to help keep your children safe.

  • Fun crafts and games that relate to the theme of each week.

  • From a movie night with popcorn to a chance to play in our top of the line gaming room, there's never a dull moment. 

These are just a few things that every week of our summer program include. Whether you're looking for something to keep your children active, develop important life skills and traits, or simply give your child the opportunity to grow and gain a Black Belt, we are here to help.

Our new kickstart camp is for 4 & 5 year old's. This camp will run August 8, 9, and 10 from 9:00 - 12:00. These camps will include some karate, games, crafts, and more!


WEEK 1 (July 4-8): Harry Potter Camp

Magically fun!

Our most popular camp! Children get the chance to experience the fantastical wizarding world. This year will be full of different surprises and new activities. From potion making to a quidditch tournament, and even a movie night, this week is great for Harry Potter enthusiasts. 


WEEK 2 (JULY 11 - 15): Pokémon Camp

Train Like A Master

Becoming a Master is a long journey but a fun one! Children will all receive a full starter deck so that they can start learning the rules to the official Pokemon Trading Card Game or just make up their own rules and have some fun. We will have games and crafts to keep all Pokémon enthusiasts training hard.

WEEK 3 (JULY 18 - 22): Star Wars Camp

Become One With The Force

Becoming a Jedi is very similar to becoming a Black Belt. From creating a lightsaber and other Star Wars crafts, to mastering discipline and self control, this week will help your children develop important life skills. 


WEEK 5 (AUGUST 1 - 5): Animal Camp

Enjoying Mother Nature

Fun fact, the three animals of our karate style are tiger, crane, and dragon! Children love animals and exploring nature, let us help them explore the animal kingdom in a fun and interactive way. We'll either go to the Edmonton zoo for a field trip or bring a petting zoo directly on site so kids can experience hands on learning.
