BAM Academy Parkour Camps are 5-day fitness camps in Austin, Texas where your kids get to experience our dynamic Parkour Space. Your kids will not only be challenged but they’ll learn team building skills as well as the safety behind getting up, down, and over obstacles, along with some acrobatic skills and awesome parkour games and challenges thrown in. Your children will start to learn, or continue to grow if they have been with us before, how to become a ninja by focusing on creating strong bodies, strong minds, and strong spirits. Using our awesome coaching and progression system to create confident and strong movements, we will promote a continuation throughout the years of Strength Through Movement. That’s what we will provide – looking at movement as play more than working out! Our camps can be physically and mentally challenging. Expect your child to be tired and even a bit sore after the 2nd day of camp. Appetites and sleep time may also increase after the 3rd or 4th day of camp.
