About this trip

Sleepy Hollow for Halloween? Yes, please.  A bucket list item for any and all Halloween enthusiasts, Sleepy Hollow is most well known for Washington Irving and the Legend of the Headless Horseman Classic.  Few other cities, in the world, go as hard in the paint as Sleepy Hollow.  For this very reason, we have chosen to host our epic annual Halloween Camp within driving distance of this iconic small town.   For 4 days and 3 nights, our campers will enjoy world class training, alongside world class curation of the most epic Halloween-Packed Itinerary weekend you could ever fathom. 

Envision Haunted Houses, Ghost walking tours, the Great Jack 'O' Lantern Blaze, Castles, spooky tales, visiting all of the iconic landmarks  that Tarrytown has to offer, Halloween Sweet Treats and more.  We simply, cannot wait to share this carefully curated experience with you!  This opportunity is a dream come true.  

The weekend will culminate in a beautiful Masquerade Ball.  The theme of the entire weekend will be Victorian Era Clothing and or Steam Punk. 

Camp Includes the following Excursions: (Please note: due to the time of year, these activities have to be booked months in advance and always sell out.  Even if you decide not to participate these fees are not extractable.) 

Great Jack "O" Lantern Blaze ($50) 

Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Ghost Tour ($65) 

Sleepy Hollow Haunted House with live actors ($65) 

Jiu Jitsu training will be led by multiple time World Champion, April Parks, and New Wave athlete, Katie Hooven.   Additional instructors will be announced as we get closer to the event.  Jiu Jitsu is split into equal sessions of Gi and No Gi.  

This is an EXCLUSIVE event available to only 14 women. The accommodations are absolutely awestriking.  This house might be our best house to date for a camp.  

 The FULL CAMP Experience - staying at the house - will be open to women only. We do plan to rent an event space to accommodate the Masquerade Ball and training.  These portions will be available to both men and women staying outside of the full camp experience.

This camp exceeded all of my expectations. The house was so comfortable and included so many amenities. The planned activities were so much fun, the training was absolutely amazing, and most of all meeting so many amazing and strong women who love jiu jitsu! I came away feeling so excited and motivated to keep learning, to go at my own pace, and to have fun and enjoy the journey!

Such a fun way to spend Memorial Day weekend! My favorite part was the Jiu Jitsu, nice intimate setting that made it easy to ask questions and given enough time to drill. Good vibes all around. Cool house, great people and well organized. April and Katie are the bomb.

Wow! What an incredible long weekend! I attended the Grappling Getaways Memorial Day Camp in the Poconos. What April Parks and Katie Hooven have built is truly special. While I was researching jiu jitsu camps, I stumbled upon GG. I loved that this camp was focused on women with a smaller group. April, Katie, Cat, and Nicole are amazing teachers and showed us some super useful techniques that can actually be applied in a real scenario. This weekend for me was filled with an extraordinary amount of self discovery, confidence, and growth. All of the women who attended were absolutely amazing. We had so much fun out on the boat, doing yoga by the pond, playing Olympic Games (Go team Italy 🇮🇹 for 3rd place 🥉!!!... also, I'm totally the pink shark in the video 🤣), the hot tub, making s'mores, singing karaoke, making wonderful connections and new friends, and just having the time of our lives! I can't wait for my next camp! Pinky promise I'll be back April and Katie! 😉❤️

This was my second Grappling Getaways Bahamas camp, and it's truly something special! The highlight for me is the quality of instruction and the amount and quality of training we get in over the days, somehow fitting this in with the epic adventures. The planned adventures are an icing on the cake which make it really feel like a holiday. I recommend this camp for people who are adventurous and love connecting with fun and playful people. Thank you April, Katie, and everyone who makes this a hit!

This was my first getaway and it won’t be my last. This trip, these people and this experience was something my soul needed. I made lifelong friends, learned some killer techniques while vacationing in paradise. I got solid life advice for things I’m struggling w in my own business. Seeing such strong, powerful women be so down to earth and welcoming and loving just makes feel so grateful I made the trip….. next trip will be Mexico. See you soon Coaches!!!!

Highly recommend!! I've attended 3 amazing Grappling Getaway camps so far (and plan on attending many more) and each time is unique and awesome! April and Katie are exceptional women who truly love what they do! I appreciate so much the time and effort they take to connect with female struggles both on and off the mats, makes these camps unmatchable. Their attention to every detail, coupled with their incredible ability to just go with the flow, makes being in their presence an authentic jiu jitsu experience. They create such a welcoming, fun, and empowering experience, where friendships are seeded and your jiu jitsu grows! If you're wanting to feel empowered by strong women with great attitudes and open minds, you should DEFINITELY get to a Grappling Getaway ASAP!

April, and the other instructors with Grappling Getaways are THE BEST. Top notch human beings who are amazing at jiu jitsu and amazing at teaching. I’ve been to 3 Grappling Getaways events, and each has been so much fun, so inviting, encouraging, and appropriately challenging for what was advertised. I’ve met so many incredible female leaders and role models through Grappling Getaways. HIGHLY recommended :)
