Teen Camp - Growing Up Chicago (13-17 years)

This camp was so successful in the summer of 2020 we are bringing it back! Despite the limitations imposed by COVID, last year’s Growing Up Chicago Camp offered a unique experience for teenagers to get a little freedom over the summer to explore the The Windy City. Lead by a school teacher, our teens walked Chicago neighborhoods and explored the many hidden treasures throughout our city.

To understand Chicago, a person must experience it. Even native Chicagoans sometimes need to step back to really understand their home. At POW!, we pride ourselves in 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, sometimes using pubic transportation for scavenger hunts in classic Chicago locales, to gaze at world class art, dialog about pizza comparisons and even dive into the grid system that makes Chicago the greatest city in the world. And of course, these camps will offer a daily workout because POW! builds confident, fit, safe and healthy people. While this camp is intended to provide adventure, we will follow all guidelines and observe all safety measures. Kids must bring a phone as we will use it for assignments and slide shows.

Boxing & Thai Boxing Camp (10-16yrs)

Camps at POW! are first and foremost - A BLAST!! We make everything fun and dynamic. This week-long, camp includes boxing, fitness & fitness classes. This unique training experience will build confidence and teach valuable skills. The goal is to give the kids exposure to a wide range of combat sport techniques and basic self-defense.

Kids will take classes in boxing, muay thai/kickboxing, self-defense, tumbling, speed and strength. We will also teach the children about martial arts history and offer various art assignments and creative writing assignments. Our goal is that the children leave with a better understanding of how to become a disciplined person with excellent mental focus. This week long camp will also improve your child’s fitness level and overall coordination.

The primary focus of this week-long camp is to give the kids a unique training experience using the the combat sports & principles of martial arts. We will spend a couple sessions dedicated to differentiating between defenses that apply to a bullying situation on school property and those that happen in an uncontrolled environment. We will also discuss bullying and help kids to better understand how to respond when someone is mean verse bullying them. This will be incorporated into our week long program, but not at the sacrifice of enjoying the practice of the combat sports.

Kids must have equipment for this class: boxing gloves, wraps, shin guards and boxing mitts These are sold in the POW! Pro Shop. If you send any electronic devices - POW! is not responsible for them.
