Rockford Ninja Warrior will be holding it’s massive annual competition on August 12 and 13, but before that they’re kicking things off with a youth camp.

This isn’t just ANY youth camp. It’s a Ninja youth camp, with some of the biggest names in the game offering personal instruction. Name an American Ninja Warrior. They’re probably at this camp!

Here’s a little peek at all the fun we’re missing.

First of all, there are just a FEW famous Ninjas there.

Day one! @rockfordninjas #islandninja

WHEW.

And they’re just as excited as the kids! Look at Jamie Rahn’s face.

So many eager little Ninjas in training!

The Ninjas were flipping out for the kids.

Probably two of our future competitors.

Ninja Warrior Time!

How cool is it to learn straight from your hero?

It’s awesome that Ninjas like Drew Drechsel will take the time to teach.

These little Ninjas are so brave!

That’s it. We’re signing up for this next summer.

We're wrapping up our morning youth camp with some ninja fun!
