3 Reasons to Host a Summer Camp

While regular martial arts classes can dip in attendance over the summer with students going on vacations, there are still plenty of families that need a safe, structured place for their children to be for Monday – Friday.

Here are three strong reasons why to promote and host a summer camp.

1. Tuition Income
According to Care.com, the average rate for a sports camp ranges from $500 – $1,000 per week. On the lower end, a summer camp hosted by the local community recreation center can be a little as $50 per week.

Most martial arts schools range from $75 – $275 per week for an 8 – 10-week summer camp.

Here is what the income potential is for a $149 per week camp. This doesn’t include snacks, exam fees, uniforms, and sparring gear.

Weekly   Students         Total      Weeks         Total
$149                 10               $1,490         10                $14,900
$149                 15               $2,235         10                $22,350
$149                 20               $2,980        10                $29,800
$149                 25               $3,725         10                $37,250
$149                 30               $4,470        10                 $44,7000

$149                 40               $5,960        10                 $59,600
$149                 45               $6,705        10                 $67,050
$149                 50               $7,450        10                 $74,500

2. Feed Your After-School Program.
One of the main reasons schools host summer camps is that a high percentage of the kids in the camp will transfer into your after-school program.

3. Massive Retention
If you host an exciting summer camp, you have a great chance of enrolling the kids into your after-school or regular evening classes. However, there is a big difference in retention.

Evening/standard classes struggle to keep kids for even 8 – 12 months. However, because an after-school program is structured to be part of the weekday routine, the kids stay with the program for years. It’s not uncommon for kids to stay with your after-school program for 5 – 8 years. They

just get used to it like going to school each day.
