Camp Budokan 2016

Camp Budokan is one action packed week of judo and sports.  Both residential and day camp programs are available to meet the needs of all judo players regardless of age or size.  We are located in North Oshawa at Camp Samac (National Boy Scouts Camp of Canada).

CAMP BUDOKAN founded in 1965, was the first judo camp of its kind and still delivers an unequalled training opportunity.  We are proud of our ability to attract internationally respected coaches.  Coaches who unselfishly pass on their extensive knowledge of judo to the athlete.  The ever-increasing popularity of CAMP BUDOKAN is a testimony to the quality of instruction given.
