Kids Summer Camps

Share This Post

Why enroll your child in Taekwondo summer camps? Like all summer camps, they offer a range of benefits for a child of any age. Our martial arts summer camps offer something genuine: unique experiences and opportunities to develop skills. Here are the top five benefits of summer camps, our Taekwondo summer camps specifically.

1. Physical Activity

Every kind of physical activity is good for children, but some develop a wider range of skills faster. Taekwondo summer camps help children develop agility, strength, balance, coordination, and many more physical skills. These benefits can apply to other areas of your child’s life and spark in them a love of exercise and a habit of making healthy choices.

2. Socializing with Other Kids

Taekwondo is a fun but competitive environment. During this summer camp, your child will have plenty of opportunities to interact with new kids, form new friendships, and develop their social skills. In martial arts, we encourage each other and respect each other. This makes our camp a great place for socialization.

3. Varied Experiences

At Dragon Taekwondo, we offer something other martial art schools don’t; we take the kids on fun trips to other environments so that they can experience more than just martial arts while they are here. Our field trips might include:

  • Skating
  • Bowling
  • Laser quest
  • Playdium
  • Ripley’s Aquarium
  • African Lion Safari
  • Indoor trampoline parks
  • Glow in the dark mini putt

Talk to us about what kind of field trip your kids can go on during our summer camps! We’re always looking for new and enriching experiences for our camps.

4. Having Fun

Sometimes adults tend to focus on the practical benefits of things a bit too much. Your kid will have fun at a kid’s summer camp, making great memories, and sometimes that’s what it’s all about. Taking the time to just have fun and relax is important, especially after such a stressful year.

5. Time Away from Parents

Having time to yourself is great, of course. Everyone needs a rest from the kids occasionally. However, it’s also a benefit for kids to spend some time independent of their parents, in an environment that isn’t school. With new peers, your child will have the opportunity to forge new social connections and feel more independent–in a safe environment. This can especially help children who have trouble fitting in at school.
