Most frequent questions and answers about our Adventure Away Camp Program

All students ages 9 to 12 and 13 to 18 are able to attend the Adventure Away Camp. This camp is members only, but there is no minimum rank required – all experience levels will be learning new Karate skills and techniques, and are sure to have a blast!

Camp Air-Eau-Bois has excellent facilities – our group stays in their “auberge,” which has a fantastic central recreation lounge area where we will train, relax, have fun and even watch movies! Surrounding the lounge area are individual rooms with bunk beds where students will be paired by gender. The facility includes separated girls and boys’ bathrooms and showers inside the building.

We love the food that Camp Air-Eau-Bois prepares for us! We always request foods that will be good for supporting our students in their training, including high-protein meals that will keep them feeling full and strong throughout the day. Their canteen serves us breakfast, lunch, and dinner, though we do advise students to bring extra snacks for themselves to eat between training activities, as well as water and a couple drinks that have some electrolytes so they will stay hydrated and energized throughout their training and activities.

Students will be occupied by Karate training, traditional Kobudo (Karate weapons) training, as well as activities like swimming, canoeing, rock climbing, archery (and more!). In the evenings, we often have campfires, eat smores, and even watch movies! Students will also have supervised free time where they can spend time with their friends, do some extra training or just relax!

Our campers are always accompanied by 3 or 4 of their favourite instructors when we travel to Camp Air-Eau-Bois. We always ensure to keep a ratio of at least 1 to 8 of instructors to students. In addition to our instructors from the Dojo, Camp Air-Eau-Bois always provides us with one or two of their own experts to guide us in activities like hikes and canoeing.
