Camp will begin at 9:30 AM. this Summer. We usually start the day with a few indoor games, then have a class in the morning, followed by a short trip to a local park or beach where we play various sports and games such as Soccer, Wiffleball, Flag Football, Kick Ball, Ultimate Frisbee, Frisbee Golf, and Capture the Flag. We break for lunch; students bring their own lunch and water bottle. After lunch we play more sports and games. What we do each day depends on the weather. When it's hot, we may go to a beach. Sometimes we stay inside in the air conditioned classroom and play indoor games such as Arena Soccer and Dodge Ball. This year, camp will be on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Camp ends at 3:00 PM.
Since the Summer of 1986, this camp has been a place where many of my students, have spent most of their Summers. According to many students, and their parents, this is the best Summer Camp in the history of Summer Camps. Students who like the Tae Kwon Do program, love the Summer Camp. Many of the students who participated in the first year of camp are turning 40 this year, and they are still talking about it! I try to create an environment where students can safely have as much fun as humanly possible, develop their athletic skills, and learn a few important lessons along the way. I have been told that this camp is even better and more fun than those camps which often feature teenaged counselors with blue hair, tattoos and body piercings, where they listen to Rap music with questionable lyrics, play duck-duck-goose, weave gimp and chase each other around the park with sticks.
Graduates of this camp have gone on to become Captains of their High School and College Basketball, Wrestling, Hockey, Track, Soccer, Lacrosse and Football Teams. They are Doctors, Lawyers, Veterinarians and Professional Baseball Payers. Several of the alumnus have been U.S. National Tae Kwon Do Champions.
