Youth Camp

Q: What if there is rain on the day of the event?
A: We’re inside this year. Rain or shine, we’ll be climbing, jumping, beating walls, and breaking down barriers.

Q: Will I be able to get autographs from the Ninjas?
A: Yes, a variety of top Ninjas will be onsite throughout the week. They’re some of the friendliest and approachable people you’ll ever meet. They’ll be happy to sign everything from training journals to t-shirts. We’ve seen Ninjas sign backpacks and brand new back-to-school sneakers and shoelaces.

Q: What is included with the Youth Camp?
A: Kids will get hands-on obstacle course training, t-shirt, tips, and inspiration from pro Ninjas.

Q: Will my kid get to meet their favorite Ninja?
A: We wish we could make that happen for the thousands of kids attending. We are able to say that top Ninjas will be active at each camp, including dedicated meet-and-greet time.
We’re big fans/supporters of kids and families who put in the effort and go for their dream. If you, your kids or family want to meet a specific Ninja, share your story. Send a vid, pic or flip that sums up what makes a Ninja like Drew, Michelle, Meagan, Captain NBC, or any other become a hero and a fave.

Q: Are kids able to participate in more than one camp?
A: Unfortunately, no. Each year we sell out of all single registrations several weeks before the camps take place. If your kids need a training tip or word of inspiration, we encourage you to connect on Social. Ask us to ask a Ninja – or ask a Ninja directly and tag us on Social.

Q: Will youth participants have the chance to beat that wall this year?
A: Absolutely. It wouldn’t be Rockford Ninja Warrior without a Warped Wall!

 

Ninja Bootcamp

Q: What does a camp include?
A: Beginner to intermediate level ninja bootcamp participants learn expert advice and hands-on training tips from pro Ninjas.

Q: What instructors will I be working with?
A: We’re not able to share a detailed list and schedule. We can say that last year Jessie Graff, Jamie Rahn, Kevin Bull, and Michelle Warnky were all instructors. Grant McCartney and Daniel Gill were on-hand to lend-a-hand. If there’s a Ninja you’d like to join us, reach out on Social to the Ninja(s) and tag us @rockfordninjas – you never know what could happen. 🙂
