Camp Requirements:
Before you commit to this event, we want you to be aware of some basic facts and requirements:

  1. This is a shared yurt/cabin/room accommodation. You will be assigned to the male/female living quarters. There is limited accommodation for couples. There are a few tent spots available. When you arrive, feel free to find your own tenting spots. Please arrange your own rides to the camp. A lodging assignment will be emailed to the group before your arrival.
  1. You are expected to follow the training schedule. The exercises are pretty simple and gentle; the hours involved in training can make you physically sore but with great rewards of getting stronger each day. Please don’t sign up for this camp if you think physically you can’t keep up with the amount of training or have difficulty following schedules. You may rest, take breaks or observe during training as needed but need to make efforts to be present for the schedule.
  2. All three meals are delicious healthy vegetarian meals cooked by the Zen monks. Showing up for the meals on time are expected. Some food allergies might be accommodated. Generally, participants need to take care of any food allergies or special diet needs on their own. Students will rotate in helping with the dishes after meals each day together with the Zen monks. A dish crew schedule will be sent to you before your arrival.
  3. All morning exercises are individual practice. There are a couple of Qin Quan contact exercise in the afternoon and are generally gentle and structured drill practice. Sometimes 15min fighting contact practice is scheduled in the afternoon. It’s ok if you choose to do a different gentle contact exercise instead for that 15 minutes. It is possible to get bruises or injuries from the fighting contact training. Students are advised to trim their finger nails to avoid scratches.
We are excited to share this camp experience with you! Qi Dragon is committed to the dates now, and we are hoping you will do the same! We would appreciate that you let us know and sign up soon if you are interested in joining the camp. This event will be cancelled if we are not meeting the minimum requirement of 12 participants by SMZC. Reserve your spot now and help spread the word!
Looking forward to having you for our Annual Qin Quan Qigong Camp in 2019!
