***Summer camp is no longer happening, but this page remains as documentation of what it was!***
*The Peaceful Warrior Summer Camp is no longer operating, due to the impact of Covid-19 upon TWS.*
We may return to running summer camps in the future, so check our Facebook and website when planning ahead for the next summer, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Camp will run from 9am-3pm each day, and each camper must bring their own lunch and a snack.
Camp will be located at Rainbow Community School and Omega Middle School, which share a campus located at 574 Haywood Road and 62 State Street in West Asheville. Drop off and pick up will be from the field next to Omega, or from the 6th grade Omega classroom in the case of inclement weather.
The Peaceful Warrior Camp is dedicated to teaching children ages 9-15 how to be a modern day warrior that deeply values peace, compassion, and respect for themselves and their opponents. Each week will include large amounts of boffer game play using all different kinds of gear, but we will focus on studying the style of one warrior archetype and honing the abilities that they utilize in the game and the rest of life! The mornings will be more physically active, focusing on game play and ability training. The afternoons will be less physically demanding during the heat of the day, with time and activities focused on learning how to become our own unique versions of the warrior archetype for the week.
June 8-12: Week of the Paladin: Specializing in sword and shield style combat, the Paladin is a warrior that embodies Devotion, Honor, and Leadership.
June 22-26: Week of the Ranger: Specializing in ranged combat using archery and javelins, the Ranger is a warrior that embodies Adaptability, Dexterity, and Wildcraft.
July 13-17: Week of the Monk: Specializing in quarterstaff and unarmed combat, the Monk is a warrior that embodies Serenity, Perception, and Grace.
July 27-31: Week of the Barbarian: Specializing in two-handed and large weapon combat, the Barbarian is a warrior that embodies Resilience, Strength, and Wildness.
August 3-7: Week of the Rogue: Specializing in dual weapon combat and stealth, the Rogue is a warrior that embodies Precision, Resourcefulness, and Patience.
