Power Monkey Camp is designed for athletes of ALL levels and abilities. Campers range from complete novices to CrossFit Games competitors, all who find the PM Camp experience to be an extremely valuable one.

The stations are all presented from a foundational level with a focus on mastering correct technique. At the beginning of the week, you will be placed in a small group of varying levels of experience. You might be in a group of people from all different countries, ages and fitness levels. Working closely with your small group creates a supportive environment, providing a source of encouragement if you come across any areas of weakness.

Every day there is open gym time where participants can to work one-on-one with our elite coaching staff. You can expect to walk away from Camp with new training drills, an analysis of your movement patterns, an understanding of moving with correct technique, tips on injury prevention and mental training; all straight from some of the top sports clinicians and our team of world-class coaches. The environment at camp is very supportive and is beneficial no matter where you are in your athletic pursuits!

Yes you will get a certificate from Power Monkey Fitness, accrediting you with 30 hours of CEU's by CrossFit's continuing education program.

Camp has a heavy focus on injury prevention and rehabilitation. We have had a number of participants in the past who have had various injuries, restrictions and adaptive needs. Working with our team of Physical Therapist's and movement specialist can be a great resource in your journey to training pain free. You will learn how to analyze movement patterns through assessments, integrate rehab techniques and tools for applying these methods into your training regiment. Its also worth noting that a number of our lectures and seminars do not require physical participation and are just as valuable as a spectator.

All of the cabins available are with other athletes (true summer camp style!!). Men and women will be sleeping in separate cabins. We unfortunately cannot accommodate private rooms. If you would prefer to stay off site, you are welcome to book your own accommodation. The nearby Hampton Inn is offering a discounted rate of $105/night if you mention "Power Monkey Camp" when booking. With this option you'd be responsible for your transportation to and from camp to the hotel. Part of the fun of Camp is staying on campus, we usually don't recommend staying off site, but as a last resort if need be.
