FAQs

Where are you located?  Is your location secure?

We are just around the corner from Costco Corporate Headquarters in Issaquah. We are in a beautiful, 10,000 square foot facility on a fully gated, secure campus. Campers will be supervised by Camp Staff throughout their time at camp, and the gates can be closed to all traffic during outdoor activities. Every day, parents will need to sign-in and sign-out their child with the On-site Manager or supervising Staff member. In the event of an emergency, you may reach your child by calling the Karate West main number: 425-391-4444.

My child has never taken a martial arts class before. Will they have fun at this camp?

Absolutely! This camp is designed to be the perfect place for all kids ages 6-11. No martial arts experience necessary! Kids will love the daily martial arts fitness classes incorporated into our exciting summer camp. Your child will build confidence, strength and coordination, and learn how to stay safe, avoid a fight, and deal with bullies appropriately. In addition, our camp will include a variety of the coolest games and activities. Check out our list of exciting weekly themes!

Can the daily Martial Arts segment of camp replace my child’s regular karate classes during the summer?

Should I plan to sign my child in and out every day at camp?

Yes! Please allow a few minutes at drop-off and pick-up to sign-in and sign-out on the clipboard with a member of our camp Staff. This is also the time to give our Staff any special pick-up instructions, make sure your child has their snack (AM campers) or lunch and two snacks (Full Day campers), and reusable water bottle.

Will every week feature the same activities?

Our experienced Camp Staff will present a new camp theme each week that is sure to excite and delight your child. The featured weekly theme and corresponding life skills will ensure that new campers will have the time of their lives, while returning campers will always have exciting new things to learn and do to keep their interest fresh.

Life and School Skills?

Since its inception in 1989, Karate West has specialized in training kids to be high-achievers in all areas of life—at home, at school, and everywhere they go. At Summer Camp we extend that same focus to our campers with a week-long Life Skill Program. For Full Day and After Care campers, we’ll feature a daily segment of best-fit reading and math skills as part of our “Summer Learning Loss Prevention” initiative. Our goal is to offer a summer camp experience that will prepare them for the coming school year and effect positive changes in our campers long after summer is over.
