Summer camps at POW! are first and foremost - A BLAST!! We make everything fun and dynamic. POW! Gym's Boxing & Muay Thai camps include a week dedicated to learning boxing and another separate week dedicated to learning Muay Thai and self-defense classes. This year we are offering two different combat sports camps. Boxing and Muay Thai each have their week.

Through this unique training experience, your kids will build confidence and teach valuable skills relating to combat sports. Each class will break down the technique, purpose, and application of each exercise or movement. Physical training, flexibility, and conditioning will be incorporated into the Boxing and Muay Thai classes during their separate weeks. We will also teach the children about martial arts values and the foundation of self-defense. Our goal is that the children leave with a better understanding of how to become disciplined people with excellent mental focus. Each of these week-long camps aims to improve your children's fitness, coordination, and listening skills.

Combat equipment is not included in the price of the camp. Muay Thai camp requires shin guards, gloves, wraps, and a mouthpiece. Boxing camp requires gloves, wraps, and a mouthpiece. Equipment is sold separately at our Pro Shop. Summer camp policies are below please read them before purchasing.

POW! Summer camps are filled with dynamic and active full days. We find a way to keep kids moving. Nerf Week will lead several structured movement classes each day that combines target shooting with nerf guns while running and jumping. Campers will practice various nerf skills in challenges. POW! provides single-shot nerf guns for safety, however, during battle days, kids are allowed to bring their own nerf guns and ammo that will be safely stored until the appropriate training time. Safety equipment is worn and rules of engagement are followed.

Some of these nerf skills events will occur inside and others may be at Mercy Soccer Field. Aside from the daily nerf events, the kids will still participate in art, park time, daily workouts, art projects, and reading. Our program is structured and we make sure the kids get the right balance of physical activity, structured play, downtime, and rest. Kids will be divided into teams throughout the day. We also take field trips to the park. Campers are allowed to bring their own nerf guns, but for challenges and various skills POW! provides nerf guns so everyone is using the same nerf product for challenges. If your child brings their own pellets, we will not promise that the exact type or amount of nerf pellets will be returned.

Teen Summer Camp - Growing up in Chicago

To understand Chicago, a person must experience it. Even native Chicagoans sometimes need to step back to understand their home. At POW!, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, structured, active curricula. POW! takes this approach with immersive learning, exploring the streets of Chicago. 

This camp is best for teens who love Chicago and want to know more about it through actually living it. Rain or shine, our teens will trample the city and use the CTA for scavenger hunts in classic Chicago locales, to gaze at world-class art, dialog about pizza comparisons, and even dive into the grid & grit system that makes Chicago the greatest city in the world. Campers will pound the pavement to navigate within various neighborhoods.

Owner, Katalin Rodriguez Ogren, a native Chicagoan, who grew up on Chicago Ave and Wells with her brothers, created this camp for the independent, curious, and active teenager. Campers will experience what it means to be a city kid. This week-long summer camp will begin at POW! Gym in the West Loop where they will start their day. Kids will then be led through the city exploring various topics like art, architecture, history, sports, culture, and food. Teens will navigate the city while using public transportation, led by Lead Instructor Anya Zamiar, a seasoned instructor and CPS 8th-grade teacher.  There is an additional $50 charge for field trips and entrance fees. This will be collected 2 weeks before the camp date starts. The camp agenda is different than in past years, with some key overlapping topics and adventures.  

Week of July 24th: The Light & Dark Side of Chicago

No matter where you travel in the world, Chicago has a reputation for its spectacular art and architecture, but also its nefarious past. Oddly, Chicago is infamous for its dark side including its seedy underbelly of corruption that still haunts its legacy today. In the early 1900s, Chicago became the fastest-growing city in the world, growing from 300,000 in population to 1.7 million. Teens will explore not only the amazing light side of our fine city’s growth but its dark side. They will learn about the history of organized crime that brought our Windy City's renowned attention, but also its haunted buildings whose ghosts to this day still make themselves known to many travelers and residents. This week teens will travel through parts of the city exploring the beauty above the payment which is defined by both old and new school architecture. Then travel below the payment to discover Lower Wacker Drive, the many confirmed haunted buildings and where the infamous Al Capone built part of his empire.
