Summer Camp Update

We have recently been informed that Osawa Sensei will be undergoing shoulder surgery later this winter. Because of this, we are unable to confirm whether or not he will be able to attend our summer camp until later in the spring, when we learn more about his recovery. The class schedule will continue in its usual capacity and we suggest early registration and reservations so as to secure your place at camp.

We wish Osawa Sensei a speedy recovery and hope he will be able to join us for another wonderful week together. We will keep you posted as the situation progresses.
