Highlands Martial Arts Kung Fu Camp

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Summer has come to Atlanta and with the long and hot days children have gotten out of school. There are many options when it comes to entertaining the kids during their 10 weeks off from classes, studying and homework. One of these options is enrolling in a summer camp and there are literally hundreds in the metro area to choose from. I am currently working on a three part series on some of these camps starting with sports for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. There are football camps, baseball camps, basketball camps and many others but to start the summer off right I wanted to feature three that are a little bit off of the beaten path. Kung Fu Camp at Highland Martial Arts in the Virginia Highlands neighborhood of Atlanta, H2O Zone Camp at SeaVenture in Alpharetta which teaches kids how to swim and snorkel and Climbing Camp at Stone Summit in Atlanta. For the past 6 years, the martial arts dojo has been offering summer camp in the Atlanta area.
