Parents of
Young Campers

It is highly encouraged to have all colored belts attend the camp, regardless of age. The training is outstanding and the friendships that can be started are some that will last a lifetime. However, it is necessary to have all youth supervised by a responsible adult while they are at the camp. In addition to the karate training there is also a swimming pool, climbing wall, tennis courts, movies downtown and many other things for young people.

To encourage parents to bring their children and enjoy the camp there are special rates available for those who are supervising and not training.

Rates for Non-training Participants

Room and Board Only

Plan 1: 1 night, 2 days $135
Plan 2: 2 nights, 3 days $175
Plan 3: 3 nights, 4 days $215

These rates are base on 4 people per room, which is the standard housing in the dorm. If special arrangements are called for then the rates would be adjusted accordingly.


Each dormitory suite has 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds each. Each room is designed to handle 4 people. Linen and blankets are provided at no extra charge. Meals begin at the University Friday morning and there are also many good places to eat in town.

Check-in and lodging Lawrenson Hall
Meals Holmes Dining Center
Training Rec Center Gym

There are facilities available for swimming, volleyball, tennis and golf. The main activity is karate training, however, be sure to take advantage of these other fine facilities, if you are interested.


The University of Northern Colorado is located in Greeley, about 60 miles northeast of Denver. There are at least three methods of transportation:
1) Car rental from Denver International Airport, which you arrange on your own. Please call ahead of time.
2) Rocky Mountain Shuttle from DIA to Greeley. The one way fare is about $31 and the round trip is about $60. The phone number is 1-970-356-3366. You will need to call to arrange your times. If you have a group, lower rates may be possible. You can also book on line at
3) Be at the headquarters dojo by 1:00pm on Thursday, Aug. 11, and you can ride with other students up to Greeley. There will be regular class from 11:45am - 12:45pm on Thursday and you're welcome to train.

Please arrange your own transportation from the airport to the camp or to the dojo.


Get your team ready to compete. Each year we seem to have a different champion from different parts of the country. Competion is fabulous and the cheers are unbelievable. Food is out of sight. Time is always too short so we need to be ready to spike and dive.
