Makoto Summer Program
Join the FUN this Summer!
Don’t drag your kid kicking and screaming to the same old summer camp.
This year, let them kick… kiai (Japanese for “scream”)… and create some
fantastic memories in the Makoto Summer Camp program.
Each week the campers will not only learn the martial arts, they’ll…
• Gain cool Ninja skills as they learn a traditional martial arts…
experience weapons work… and train to run faster and jump
• Take at least three (3) field trips a week to such fun locations
as: Dutch Springs Water Park… Urban Air Trampoline Park...
Spirit of Philadelphia Lunch Cruise... Mermaid Lake… Zoo
America… Roundtop Mountain Adventures with OGO Balls…
• Experience adventures like canoeing… archery… swimming…
scavenger hunts… and Carnival Day.
• Learn how to “Pay It Forward” as they hold Good Deed Day (a
yearly favorite)… a charity car wash… collect needed items for
such local charity organizations as Cradles to Crayons…
This is your kids’ summer. It’s their chance to get outside, be active, and
have a great time. So we promise… your kids will come home tired, dirty,
and excited to come back to do it all again tomorrow.
