Taekwondo Tenets in Action
As Taekwondo students at Adirondack Taekwondo we try our best to follow the tenets of Taekwondo: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control & Indomitable Spirit. The past month has been filled with events and activities where we put the tenets in ACTION!
Rain or shine our students & volunteers (thank you) came out to support our local police officers with a special meet and greet. Students got to sit in police cars, meet the K-9 unit all while supporting the Sheriff's department benevolent fund for at risk children to attend summer camp. Even with the rain we raised just over $200 at our Lemonade Stand! Our goal is a total of $500 so we decided to leave out donation boxes in the parents lobby to continue to support this effort. We will be taking extra collections throughout the month. Thank you for your consideration.

Taekwondo Summer Camp August 20 - 24, 2018
Our Taekwondo Summer Camps are the BEST and this year is no different. We will be hosting a special week of field trips where school buses will be taking us to various "hot spots" in the capital region.We will be rock climbing, bowling, go-kart racing, playing mini-golf and going to Lake George for ice cream and a ride on the Mini-HAHA! Our mornings will be filled with Taekwondo training, videos andarts and crafts including: making slime, building catapults, egg drops and more!
This year we have changed our summer camp policy. As always we need a minimum twenty-five (25) students registered to host the camp. This year wehave limited our camp to forty (40) students, siblings and friends. Since we will be going on field trips everyday the camp must be paid in full at the time of registration and there are NO refunds (in the past we have had to cancel our camp due to families making other vacation plans). Adirondack Taekwondo Summer Camp fee: $300 per student, $100 discount for two family members. Last day to register is Friday June 1, 2018.
The campfee includes all transportation, field trips and activities here in the Taekwondo School. Students should bring lunch daily or they willneed pocket money for ice cream and snacks at our field trips.
