More Than Just Day Camp…

Our Core Coaches have over a decade of parkour experience as athletes and coaches.

All of our coaches maintain an active parkour practice. Because we are dedicated to creating careers for our coaches, they are among the highest paid-per-hour coaches in the United States.

We have the lowest injury rate of all parkour organizations in the United States.

We practice Choose Your Own Challenge and ask ourselves: Is it safe? Is it fun? Is it challenging? Are we learning something? All coaches are adult and pediatric first-aid/AED/CPR certified and carry a first aid kit.

We are the only organization in New York City that is insured to teach parkour in public parks and playgrounds.

We actively work with the NYC DOT and Parks and Recreation departments to provide free parkour programming to communities through parks and playground activations and neighborhood celebrations.

Learn About Our Day

MORNING

Uptown & Downtown Campers meet at a different spot each day to train together. We warm-up and practice our parkour vision to find opportunities for movement from the environment. After a light snack we focus our lesson on a specific skill or technique.

AFTERNOON

After reflecting as a group on our morning exercise, we have lunch followed by guided free-time. Campers play and adapt games to better fit the location and practice their morning techniques through play. After a light snack we travel back to the pick-up location.

3P-5P

Early pick-up is available from 3p-3:15p Uptown & Downtown. Full day students break into smaller groups to focus on one of our STEM learning Projects: Playground Design, Game Design, Orienteering, Comic Art & Anatomy, Improv & Storytelling.
