THE PATH OF THE WARRIOR AWAITS AT NINJA FEST 2017.

Ninja Fest at Lake Frances is kicking off its second season this summer. Ninja Fest is located on 150 beautifully wooded acres in Crossville, TN. Lake Frances, a private 32-acre lake, makes the site one of the most picturesque camps in the country. Ninja Fest runs in conjunction with Flip Fest Summer Gymnastics Camp, one of the premier gymnastics camps in the country and the only camp owned and operated by two Olympians, John Macready and John Roethlisberger.

Ninja Fest is designed to bring to life everything kids love to do—running, jumping, climbing, flipping and becoming a ninja warrior. Campers will be tested and inspired by obstacles and challenges both within our 26,000 feet of indoor gym space, and throughout the amazing and adventure-inspiring Lake Frances property.

Our goal at Ninja Fest is for new Ninja Fest Warriors to not just leave better athletes and for them to conquer their training goals, but to leave empowered, believing that, with hard work and perseverance, they can conquer any challenge that life puts in front of them.

Do you have what it takes to be a Ninja Fest Warrior?

CAMP LIFE

A typical week of camp will include scheduled daytime activities, both inside and outside of the gym, as well as an evening all-camp activity each night. Monday through Friday, campers will kick off the morning with outdoor challenges and obstacle course training. Afternoon training will move to the gym, taking advantage of all the pits, bars, trampolines and mats. Campers will get a chance to participate in the high ropes course, laser tag and lake activities, including tubing behind the jet skis, canoeing, water slide and swimming.

 

Evenings feature an all-camp activity for both the ninja campers and gymnastics campers. Monday is the greatest all-camp dance. The haunted hike will be Tuesday evening. Wednesday will find campers undertaking the ultimate scavenger hunt. Show the week-long culmination of your skills on Thursday at Skit Night in the gym.

A look into Ninja Fest

 

Facilities

Housing

We house campers in comfortable cabins, each supervised by a counselor. Every cabin is equipped with complete restroom facilities and central heat and air. We house girls and boys in separate cabins with other campers of similar ages. Upon check-in, parents may help move their children into their cabins and meet the counselor who will work with their children for the week.

MEALS

All meals for campers are prepared fresh daily in our on site kitchen. Lunch options vary from grilled chicken/beef soft tacos, chicken nuggets and a sandwich bar to name a few. A typical dinner would be grilled chicken, fresh steamed broccoli, roasted potatoes and a whole wheat dinner roll. We offer fruit at every meal, as well as a salad bar at lunch and dinner.

FAQs

While all camp activities* are covered with your child’s tuition, you can open a camp bank account for your child to have during the week at camp. This money can be spent at the camp store on snacks, drinks, camp apparel (sweatshirts, t-shirts, etc .) and forgotten items such as disposable cameras, sunscreen, etc. This camp bank keeps the campers from holding onto cash during the week, and protects against theft or loss. When you receive and complete your confirmation packet after registering, you will then be able to set up your child’s camp bank account before arriving. Average opening deposits typically range from $20 to $200. Any money not spent during the week will be returned by a mailed refund check after your child’s session has ended. *exception of laser tag ($15)

WHAT IS THE COACH-TO CAMPER RATIO?
At Ninja Fest, we maintain a better than 8-to-1 camper-to-coach ratio to ensure all campers get the attention they deserve.

Their cabin will hold up to 18 campers and their counselor for the week. Each cabin has air-conditioning and its own private bathroom facilities.
