About this trip

Wherever Grappling Getaways goes, a party is sure to follow! Join us for an epic Memorial Day weekend in beautiful Upstate, NY.  Last Memorial Day was Americana-themed, this year we are going back to the 80s in an 80s-themed weekend of activities and events.  We will be stationed lakeside in a luxurious cabin adjacent to a myriad of  activities.  You will spend 3 nights, 4 days with some amazing women from around the world training jiujitsu, boating, swimming, hiking and exploring local attractions.  Picture yourself in an Adirondack chair fireside, roasting marshmallows, singing, dancing and laughing.  You will leave with your soul aglow.  Register today!

Guest Instructors for this camp will be announced


We will stay in a luxurious Cabin with enough space for a small army of women.  While we brag that our getaways are the best sleepover that you will have ever attended, there is always enough space/room for you to hide away for some peace and quite rather it be to read a book, sun bathe, soak in a claw-foot tub, or simply curl up next to an indoor fire, you will have the option to engage in as much or as little of our planned events as you like. 

Considering that we try to maximize space to allow for as many women as possible to participate, campers should PLAN to share a room, and in some instances a bed with another camper.  If there is a camper that you would like to room with, please share this is special requests during the registration process. 

in the event that you require your own room, or an individual bed, you may reserve one in the checkout process as well, for an additional fee.  

Refunds and Cancellations

At this time, when you secure your space with a deposit, the DEPOSITS are NON-REFUNDABLE.  We strongly encourage you to fully commit before registering.  

We do understand that things come up, and we try to work with our campers for the best outcome for everyone in these instances.  

REFUNDS: (Outside of the DEPOSIT) 

After January 1st - 75% of payment will be refunded

After February 1st - 50% of payment will be refunded 

After March 1st - 25% of payment will be refunded 

After April 1st - no refund will be offered

Where do I even begin? The house, location, itinerary, communication, ladies and instruction was simply amazing. This is my 2nd camp with Grappling Getaways and will continue to do them as long as I can. I now have new friends from different states that I plan on visiting and memories that will last for a lifetime. I am so grateful I was able to experience this camp and looking forward to the one in December. ♡

Had a great time. Connected with some awesome people, activities were fun, and the training was good. I would have liked to do more jujitsu on this trip, but would definitely do it again.

OMG!! What a fantastically magical weekend! April and Katie did an amazing job with all of the planning involved and ensuring each camper felt welcome. We had some amazing training sessions, went on some fun adventures, did so many fun Halloween activities (explored Salem, survived the most awesome haunted house in New Hampshire, spooked each other in our costumes for the Monsters’ Ball, pj party, etc.). I made some great friends and miss them already. Looking forward to many more camps with Grappling Getaways. I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend!!!!

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 :)
