We’re Currently Taking Applications From Parents for Our Upcoming 2017 Kids Martial Arts Summer Camp.
Kids Absolutely Love Our Summer Camp and Because of This, We Sell Out Every Year. Be Sure to Contact us Sooner Rather Than Later to Reserve a Spot For Your Son or Daughter
It’s Not All Fun and Games. Children Also Walk Away With Powerful, life-Improving Lessons That Last a Lifetime.
These days, you’ll find that the Annapolis area offers a wide variety of summer camps. It also makes choosing the right camp very difficult.
The decision on how your child should invest their time during the summer months can be really complicated as it should be because NOT ALL SUMMER CAMPS ARE CREATED EQUAL.
Most summer camps in the area offer little more than just a place for your child to go where they’ll be looked after by some teenager who just needed a summer job…
Your child deserves better!
The difference in quality and the value is night and day from one summer camp to the next.
Like any good parent, you’d like a summer camp that offers more than just a place to babysit your kid.
This is where our summer camp stands out from all the rest. We don’t “babysit” your child and no our camp isn’t run by a bunch of college kids who needed a summer job.
We teach mixed martial arts (MMA) to the kids and they go through some really challenging workouts that help get them into amazing shape.
I’m sure mom and dad would agree, making these kids workout and raise their level of fitness is something today’s generation of video game addicted kids could definitely use more of!
We have the kids practice athletic movements and gymnastics everyday. We also do lots of drills, running routines and buddy exercises.
These workouts are designed to help turn your child into a better overall athlete, which is something that’ll carry over into other sports like soccer, football and lacrosse.
The kids go through 2-3 martial arts training sessions a day. They learn a blend of Gracie Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, Judo, and Kickboxing.
They’ll be learning from the most qualified instructors in Maryland, or anywhere in the United States.
However, martial arts and fitness is good and well but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. What the kids stand to gain from our training goes far beyond punches and kicks.
We’ll teach your kid to believe in him or herself, to stay focused, to set goals and stick to them and how to be a leader, not a follower.
These are skills that won’t leave your child once summer ends. These are life skills.
You’ll see first hand how our mixed martial arts training will teach your child how to be an assertive leader who’s confident, disciplined, and shows respect towards family and teachers.
Our Camp Teaches The Following Life Skills:
Respect (of self and others)
Core Family Values
How to Deal with bullies
Much Higher Fitness Level
You’re making an investment into your child’s future.
As you can tell, this isn’t Your Ordinary, daddy-day-care type of Summer camp.
Let us help make your child’s summer one filled with real fun, you know, the kind they had before video games, the internet and cell phones ruined it all!
I hope as you read through this website you’re able to understand what our mission is here at Ivey League and how our summer camp program is the best choice available for your family.
Super Fun Field Trips Included!
I should point out It’s not all Martial Arts. I mean, what would a summer camp be without taking the kids on some Super Fun Field trips!
Martial arts might take place indoors but don’t be fooled, we don’t like to spend the day locked inside. Fresh air is always welcomed.
We want the kids to enjoy the beautiful weather of Annapolis during the summer months. We spend as much time outside in the fresh air as possible.
We pick field trips that the kids absolutely love. I mean after all, we can’t spend the whole time at Ivey League.
We like to get out as much as possible and going on fun field trips is a great way to do that while at the same time entertaining the kids.
Kid Favorite Field trips Include:
Dave and Busters
Sandy Point Beach
We also love to get outside with the kids and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Aside from field trips we go on walks, play corn hole, throw the frisbee around and organize a friendly game of flag football.
From The Desk of Coach Danny…
For our upcoming 2017 summer camp we plan on taking only a limited number of kids this year and spots are selling out left and right.
If you’re considering a camp like ours for your child, it’s better to take action sooner rather than later. Our summer camp sells out every single year.
The longer you hold off, the more likely your son or daughter will miss out on what could be a life changing experience for them.
Life changing is a bold statement I know, and I’m okay with that because over the years I’ve seen what our camps can do for kids and the value they offer for all types, boy or girl, big or tall, thick or thin, high or low energy.
Yes our summer camp is different from all the others. By different I mean better than other camps in the area in many ways.
Our camp starts in June and will run for 10 weeks. Camp hours will be from 9am till 5pm with early drop off and late pickup being offered at no extra charge.
Early drop off starts at 7am and late pickup goes until 6:30pm. This is great for parents who leave for work early in the morning or those coming home from a place like Washington DC.
Indeed you read that right, you get 11.5 hours of child supervision by our staff of CPR and First Aid Certified adults who take your child’s safety very seriously.
Campers participate in 2-3 martial arts classes per day with other kids close to them in age and skill level.
These training sessions include practicing martial arts styles such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, Judo, Kickboxing, Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts.
Classes also include lots of fun exercises, drills and fitness related movements that get kids in amazing shape fast!
I must admit it does take the kids some time to build up the stamina needed to excel in these types of workouts.
But no worries at all, our coaching staff is here to help them along when needed, step-by-step at a pace they’ll be able to handle.
Once a child gets in better shape and starts to see progress being made, both physically and mentally, it gives them that extra boost of self-confidence all kids want and need for success.
I’ve seen this happen many times with many different kids and It never gets old. Teaching kids to believe in themselves is what our camp is all about. It’s the greatest gift you could ever give your child.
I can guarantee you a few things with our summer camp:
#1 Your child will learn realistic self-defense skills.
#2 They’ll get in the best shape of their young life.
#3 They’ll gain self-confidence that stays with them for life!
You get all that plus super-fun field trips, with new friends being made and a summer they’ll be able to look back on with only fond memories.
If this sounds like something your child or children might like then great, contact us at (443) 339-8130 or via email ([email protected]) to set up a tour of our facility and to learn more about how our summer camp can help your child be the best they can be.
I look forward to a super fantastic summer of 2017!

Does my Child Need to Be a Member of Ivey League to Attend Camp?
Absolutely Not! Everyone is welcome to enjoy our summer camp, current member or brand new student, all are welcome.
Bring your child in and when they enroll in our camp you’ll receive their very own martial arts gi (uniform).
How Do The Weeks Work? Can I pick and choose certain weeks for my child to attend?
Yes you’ve got the option of choosing certain weeks that best suit your needs and summer travel schedule.
Our options are very flexible and include the following blocks of time: 10 Weeks ( Entire Summer), 4 Weeks, 3 Weeks, 2 Weeks or just 1 Week.
These blocks of time allow us to make the entire program customizable for any parent. Some parents need all 10 weeks for their child and others only a week or two.
We do our best to accommodate but please keep in mind some weeks sell out faster than others. Don’t miss out, contact us right away to secure your child’s spot.
What Are The Ages For Your Summer Camp?
We take students as young as four years of age and as old as 12 years of age.
What are the hours of operation? Do you offer before and after care?
Yes we do offer before and after care services for those parents who need to be at work early or stay late.
Our normal summer camp hours are 9am till 5pm. However, we offer before and after care services starting at 7am and ending at 6:30pm.
This is another reason parents love our camp. Most other places go from 9am till 4pm with nothing offered before or after that time frame.
We try very hard to make the lives of our kids parents as easy as possible. Our camp hours reflect this.
