What parkour is (source: Wikipedia)

Parkour is a training discipline using movement developed from obstacle course training. Practitioners, called tracers or traceurs, aim to get from one point to another in a complex environment, without assistive equipment, in the fastest and most efficient way possible. Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, plyometrics, rolling, quadrupedal movement (crawling), and other movements aimed at negotiating various obstacle courses. 

What your child will do at a parkour camp

Your child will spend time learning parkour and participating in obstacle courses. They’ll also learn the safety behind getting up, getting over, and getting down obstacles, with some extra movement. They might also participate in fun games as well. 

In a parkour camp, your child will spend lots of time running, jumping, climbing, flipping, and swimming. This means they’ll learn several different kinds of movements, including (source: Wikipedia):

  • Landing 
  • Parkour roll
  • Cat leap
  • Dash vault
  • Monkey vault
  • Kong vault
  • Speed vault
  • Kash vault
  • Two-handed vault
  • Precision jump
  • Underbar
  • Tic tac
  • Lic reed
  • Strides
