About this trip

Join us for our annual Halloween-Themed Camp.  Every October, Grappling Getaways does what it does best! We combine our favorite passion, Jiu-Jitsu, with our favorite season, fall, resulting in a magical retreat where we go above and beyond to enjoy the gift that is, Halloween.  

This year we will be hosting a Hocus Pocus-Themed Camp. Campers will put together their best Hocus Pocus costumes and makeup for a weekend of Haunted Happenings!

 Our Itinerary Boasts: 

- Jiu-Jitsu Training and Teaching from various female Brown/Black Belts

- Exploration of Salem, MA (Shopping, site seeing, museum)

- Ghost Walking Tour and Walking Tour of the sites filmed in Hocus Pocus

- Personalized Halloween Photoshoot (Colored smoke included) 

- Halloween Party & Games 

- Leaf-Peeping & Hiking

- Local haunted house or haunted attraction. 


Our campers will stay in a luxurious airbnb, yes all under the same roof! We feel magically teleported back to our childhood for what is certain to be the BEST sleepover you have ever attended! Mats are typically set up on premise, or closely nearby.  This gives our campers access to training, stretching or rolling whenever their hearts desire, outside of our scheduled training times. 

All campers will share a room, and some instances a bed.  Please be sure to list a friend you would like to be roomed or bunked with when registering.  

Please know, a majority of the time you have your own bed, but read below to ensure this in the event this is a necessity for you.

This was my fourth Jiu Jitsu camp with Grappling Getaways and it was my favorite one so far!! Always top notch Jiu Jitsu instruction and training, as well as delicious food and super fun activities!! I highly recommend them and can't wait for the next camp!!! The knowledge, dedication, energy and passion of the instructors is truly special and I have greatly benefited from my experiences with the Grappling Getaways team.

The Monster Smash Murder Mystery Grappling Camp was a fun weekend! It was a nice sized group where I didn’t feel lost. Everyone got a chance to talk to one another and spend time with each other at some point throughout the weekend. I loved that the coaches made it a point to connect with each and every one of us. There was scheduled time for Jiu Jitsu and other fun group activities. This camp is for all levels. I had a fantastic time! I’m looking forward to my next camp with Grappling Getaways!

I had the best time with the most amazing bad ass jiu jitsu ladies at my first women’s camp which was Halloween themed. April and Katie were amazing hosts and did everything to make me feel comfortable considering I did not know anyone. I walked away from the trip with some amazing Bjj knowledge taught by some top notch ladies in the Bjj community. I had so many laughs and made so many friends! Its amazing to continue these friendships outside of the camp and I cannot wait for the next one! Thank you for a once in a lifetime experience.

The Murder Mystery Camp with Grappling Getaways was the first BJJ camp I have ever been to, and it was a fantastic experience. April Parks and Katie Hooven are two inspirational women. They put their heart into this camp, and it shows the moment you sign up. All the instructors at the camp were incredible. They encouraged us to ask many questions and went around to each group, watching and helping us with the technique until we had it. The camp was so much fun! I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time! The ladies I met at the camp were all so welcoming, and we made lifelong friendships. I am glad I was able to experience this and have memories with these incredible women. I will be signing up for another camp.

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 :)
