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. 

If you require your own bed there is an option as an add-on, limited spaces.

This was the best vacation ever! Great people, activities and food. Everyone was so friendly and energetic. (And super happy) The BJJ training was top notch, and everyone involved was invested in the learning process. April, our trip organizer, did a fantastic job putting this trip together. You have to appreciate the amount of behind the scenes work and organization that resulted in such a wonderful experience. Participate in a Grappling Getaway and you will make new friends. You will learn new BJJ skills and/or build on skills/techniques you already have. You will have a blast!

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.

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 :)
