SUMMER CAMP 2018

Darimar Martial Arts offers eleven fun-filled weeks of Summer Day Camp. With a focus in martial arts, the program is designed to instill important values and skills, such as teamwork, confidence, focus, discipline, and fitness for children the ages 4 ½ to 13 years. The experience also includes traditional day camp activities such as arts & crafts, water balloon fun, archery, and weekly field trips.Whether the camper is signed up for one week or eleven weeks, each week is geared toward a special lesson theme such as “Be a leader, not a boss.” Darimar’s energetic camp staff and martial arts masters are highly qualified and well trained. In addition, the summer camp program strives to maintain a low child to counselor ratio to provide the best experience for each camper.

New to Taekwondo? Don’t worry! Every year new summer campers with no martial arts background start as white belts and learn and reinforce various techniques each day of camp. By the time camp is over, beginners will feel very comfortable with being in the Dojang.
