It’s impossible to make all the right decisions as a parent. But sending your kid to a taekwondo summer camp isn’t a bad decision. Instead, summer camps are one of the things parents get excited about. It’s not about getting time away from your kids, instead, summer camps are about giving your child opportunities to broaden their horizons and do something new. Here are the reasons that parents attend our taekwondo summer camp “near you” in Oakville and Milton, ON.

  1. New Role Models:

While children can learn a lot from their parents, they need other role models to grow too. Our highly trained and accomplished staff are great role models to connect with. They can sometimes offer lessons and new insights that children’s parents may not understand.

  1. Learn Physical Skills:

Everyone from young children to your oldest teen can learn new physical skills at taekwondo camp, whether it’s simple coordination of their legs and arms to complex jump kicks. You are never too young or too old to learn new physical skills.

  1. Grow Self-Confidence:

When a child feels mastery of his or her body, when they know they could defend themselves from other children, they feel more confident in themselves and who they are. Our summer camp program gives parents a chance to allow their children to build and grow their own self-confidence.

  1. Make New Friends:

While school provides a lot of socialization, it’s always important for children to have the opportunity to start fresh and make new friends from scratch. They can do that at summer camp. Being able to meet new people and bond with different people than the ones from the school year builds a child’s social skills.

  1. Enjoy Competition:

Taekwondo summer camp is long enough for your child to develop some competitive spirit and seek to outdo their peers in a healthy way. Competition is healthy in certain atmospheres; it drives the children to strive for success.

  1. Develop Discipline:

One of the most important values that taekwondo offers is that of discipline. We teach your child that the effort they put in, not the results, is what matters.

  1. Learn Something New:

Children need lots of new opportunities to discover what they like and what they don’t. Martial arts are just one great opportunity for that.

  1. Make Great Memories:

Taekwondo summer camps may end up being some of your child’s fondest childhood memories one day. There’s a certain magic to summer camps that most people look back on fondly.

  1. Start Good Exercise Habits:

When you’ve always exercised, it’s easier to keep doing it as an adult. Start your child on a good path now.
