Drop off and Pick up
Drop off begins at 7:00am. Please plan to bring your child into our facility and sign them in each day. If you know that your child is going to be late, please call to notify the Director. In addition, please be advised that campers not arriving by 9:00 on a field trip day will be the responsibility of their parent/guardian for the day if departure has already occurred.
Structured activities, other than Taekwondo complete at 4:30pm.
Pick up between 4:30 and 6:00pm is considered standard. There will be a late charge for pickup after 6:00pm. All pick ups will be supervised by a staff member. The only people allowed to pick up a camper are those who have been previously identified on the camp registration form.
During the drop off period from 7:00 to 9:00am and pickup period of 4:30 to 6:00pm, campers will participate in supervised free choice time. During this time, board games, paper games, and art supplies will be available. Campers will also be free to use their own portable electronic devices.
Daily Lunch & Snacks
Daily lunch and snacks will not be provided by our camp. Campers should bring lunch and snack for themselves packed in an insulated lunch bag with an ice pack. Every Thursday is Pizza Day! The cost is $5 and includes: pizza, pretzels, a drink box, and a popsicle. The money can be brought in with campers each Thursday. On Fridays, campers will be eating their lunches at Westwood Park. We strongly recommend that lunches be packed in brown disposable bags on those days so that campers do not need to remember to bring their lunch boxes home.
Camp Cell Phone – Contacting the Camp Director
Each camp location has a camp cell phone. We ask that if you need to contact the summer camp staff during camp hours, that you call that phone. The phone numbers of these cell phones will be given out on the schedule that you receive every week. The camp director has this phone on them at all times.
World Class Tae Kwon Do promotes and encourages summer reading. Approximately 30 minutes of each day will be set aside for reading time. Younger children will be read to during this period. Older children are encouraged to bring their own reading material.
All campers will receive approximately 60-90 minutes of Taekwondo skills and drills four days per week. On Fridays, our park field trip day, there will be no Taekwondo training.
Campers need to bring a clean, long or short Taekwondo uniform each day. Additional uniforms can be purchased at the front desk Campers who are not Taekwondo students will receive a uniform on their first day of camp.
Field trips will be held off site on Wednesdays as well as (weather permitting) trips to Westwood Park on Fridays. Please have campers wear socks and sneakers every Friday for our trips to Westwood Park. Campers need to wear their camp T-shirts on both Wednesdays and Fridays.
Summer Camp T-Shirts
Campers will receive a T-shirt on the first day of camp. T-shirts must be worn on field trip days (Wednesdays) and park days (Fridays). Additional T-shirts are available for purchase.
Registration for campers wishing to attend on a daily (not weekly) basis will be accepted only after May 1st, space permitting. Registrants will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
Campers must be pre-registered prior to attending all camp days. This can be done 24/7 using your online registration account. Makeup days are not permitted. These policies are required due to the specific student to instructor ratios that must be maintained based on the attending number of campers. There is a limit of 60 campers per day at each location.
Payment for camp can be done in one of two ways:
- Payment in Full: Due at time of registration.
- Credit Card Weekly: A nonrefundable deposit of 10% of total tuition is due at the time of registration with the balance charged to your credit card automatically on the Friday prior to the start of each week.
