The details on this page are current for Camp 2020 and are being updated as we receive more. If you have questions, please reach out to Events@NWMAF.org.
Camp costs for attendees usually include tuition, housing (on or off campus), and your own travel. You will also be able to buy t-shirts and rent a vendor table at the Saturday night expo when you register.
Tuition may be reduced or waived for participants who (a) are attending in order to support a participant with a disability or (b) have signed up for certain volunteer roles (see below).
Classes will begin Wednesday, July 8, and will run through Sunday, July 12. Martial arts and healing arts classes will begin on Thursday, July 9, and Wednesday and Thursday will feature an intensive self-defense instructor track. (Self-defense instructor classes will be offered less intensively through the rest of camp as well.)
Most classes will be 90 minutes long, with several offerings during each block of time. There will be 30-minute breaks between classes, plus breaks for meals.
