This spring break camp in conjunction with the Kennesaw Parks & Rec department is the perfect way to try out Kettlebell Sport. It is a mixed age/mixed gender class for kids about age 8 through teens. We will learn the basics of the kettlebell swing, clean, jerk, and snatch, and work on overall conditioning and core strength, too. We will play fitness games and learn the rules of competition. We will end the week with a mini-competition (the kids will learn how to judge for each other), and all participants are invited to join us for free at the 2017 BOLT Nationals which is the day after camp ends.

The cost for this camp is $119 for Kennesaw residents and $134 for non-residents.

Georgia Kettlebell Sport's Jenn Casey will be teaching this camp along with some help from her Kettlebell Sport Youth Team.
