NAKOA Strong
Summer Camps


Are you looking for a fun and fulfilling summer camp for your kids?
We offer a unique opportunity for your child(ren) to attend a session of our camp at no cost to you.

Our camp has been classified as a summer enrichment program offered by Charter Home Schools.
Registering for this ‘summer only’ class qualifies you for a session of our camp at no cost.

To be clear, you are not transferring schools! You are simply signing up for a single charter program. Registration in that class entitles you to the same state funding public schools receive so they can offer summer school classes at no cost to CA residents. This will have no effect on your child’s enrollment in their current school.

What we love about this program is that it gives all families the opportunity to send their kids to summer camp. Nearly everyone qualifies for this no-cost option. If your child is a California resident, in 2nd to 12th grade, and is not enrolled in summer school through the public school system, then he/she is eligible.

NAKOA Warrior Kids Camp Description

What Kind of camp do we run?

Our camp utilizes physical activity to build character and develop leadership skills. We teach them how they play the game is just as important as winning versus losing. They are sent home with daily challenges to read, do their chores, eat healthily, make their beds, and keep their rooms clean.


Participants will get a NAKOA Warrior t-shirt, on the first day of camp. The t-shirt will feature our Character Values of the Day which represents the overall theme we will be teaching.

Day One:

Campers show up to camp and are divided into teams. Each team participates in an icebreaker activity to get to know each other. As a group, they design a team flag which they carry with them throughout the week. From this point on each team rotates through different stations:


As a team, they discuss the meaning of the Character Value of the Day (i.e. Integrity, Gratitude, Perseverance, & Leadership). Immediately following, they engage in activities designed to build team unity and trust.


Games and other physical activities. Examples include, but are not limited to: Flag pull, poison ball, switch sides, lightning soccer, running obstacle courses, or a wide variety of other character and physical development challenges

Campers will have opportunities throughout each day to earn team points by demonstrating the camp’s values. Points will be also be awarded for those who complete their daily home challenges. Scores are tallied on the last day. The camp finale is a WATER BATTLE! Each team’s water supply is determined by their total score.

Our goal is to put the kids in an environment where they must work as a team to overcome challenges. They will learn how to support one another and deal with adversity. Not all competitions will be physical. Many challenges will involve critical thinking and communication skills. This will “level the playing field” and give each camper a chance to thrive and learn.

Leadership Development Camp

Within our weekly camp, we are running our Leadership Development Camp.
This is where incoming 7th-12th graders can make the jump from camp participant to a future leader.
We will have two categories: Junior Leaders and Senior Leaders.


Junior leaders will be 7th-10th graders and will have opportunities to lead by example. They are in essence junior camp counselors. They will be assigned to a younger group and will function within the group.

**Even though this is a volunteer position we want
them to go through the hiring process so that they
can gain skills in interviewing and resume writing.


Senior Leaders are camp counselors and they
will need to apply for this program and will include 9-12th graders. They will be responsible for their team and junior leader. This is a paid position with the opportunity for a weekly bonus.
