About this trip

Immerse yourself in one of our generation's most magical series, Harry Potter.  Imagine escaping reality for 4 days and 3 nights into a wonderful world of wizardry amongst 16 other students and 2 headmasters.  After being sorted into one of four houses, arrive at our English manor, located 1 hour from Salem, MA and be led to your team's dormitory.  But the magic doesn't end there...you will learn magical submissions, escapes and other trickery from World Class Female Professors.  April Parks and Katie Hooven will be the two head masters leading you on your journey.  Two additional professors will be announced.   


This weekend will include a Harry Potter Themed Party, multiple "team" contests, a scavenger hunt in Salem, MA (along with other fun games), a local haunted house, a ghost walking tour, day in Salem (free-time), a fun photoshoot and of course equal sessions of Gi and No gi,. Basically, this is the Ultimate Halloween, and harry Potter, fan's dream weekend.

Accommodations

Accommodations are in an English Manor just outside of Salem.  The house is as pictured above.  While at camp, students have full access to the property and all of its amenities.  This house is almost 8,000 square feet.  In other words, there is a lot of space to spread out, find a quiet nook to read, coffee on the patio, etc.  We always encourage our campers to be as social, or anti-social, as they like. 


Sleeping Arrangements:

Campers will share beds, unless they reserve their own bed in the add-on section.  In reserving your own bed, we cannot guarantee the size. 


Bathrooms: 

Campers will share bathrooms.  We just ask that people are respectful and guests do not occupy common/shared bathrooms for prolonged periods of time. 


Food: 

All Breakfast will be provided.  Two dinners will be provided (Friday and Sat. Night) One Lunch will be provided.  We will be eating out for 1 lunch and 1 dinner of which ARE NOT covered in your camp fee.  Additionally, please note: we do tell campers that they can bring as much food as they like to add to what we are making.  Typically, campers bring things to pass and share.  this makes for a really special camp experience where the food is extra yummy and heart-felt. 


Refunds:  DO NOT BOOK UNTIL YOU KNOW YOU CAN ATTEND

At this time We are NOT being flexible on any refunds.  ALL DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. We have been too flexible for the past few years and can no longer accommodate request.  This is going to sounds harsh, but in the event of a death, cancer, COVID, or otherwise...basically the worst thing you can think of....please don't email us and ask for your money back or to move a credit to future camps.  I am going to refer you back to this paragraph. The ONLY option you have is to find someone to take your place and they can pay you. Thank you for being so understanding.

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 :)
