Martial Arts Summer Camp


Thank you for a wonderful summer camp 2018!

In 2019, we will be returning to Lake Street Church and MacLeish Hall in beautiful downtown Evanston. The camp will begin on June 10th and end on August 9th. Camp hours will be 9:00 am – 3:15 pm for full-day campers and 9:00 am – 12:15 pm for half-day campers. We are offering nine weeks of camp. You may choose the weeks you would like, any or all. Weeks do not have to be consecutive.  You can mix and match as your schedule allows. There will not be camp on July 4th.

Martial Arts Leadership Camp with Grandmaster Joseph Connelly offers beginning and experienced students intensive training in Martial Arts. With accelerated daily sessions, most students make as much progress in 9 weeks as in a year of regular classes.

We are committed to providing each of our campers with the highest quality camp experience. Our location at 607 Lake Street in Evanston is large, bright and accessible to the parks, lakefront and special summer events of Fountain Square. Mornings will be filled with intensive training in the Korean martial arts of Taekwon-do, Kumdo and Hapkido. In the afternoons we will offer a variety of activities, such as Kidpower® “Real World” Personal Safety and Emergency self-defense skills, Tai Chi, Yoga, swimming, Taiko Drumming and Korean language and culture. There will be plenty of time to relax, read or play games.

Camp is available to students entering 2nd grade and higher in the Fall of 2019. Exceptions may be made for younger students with martial arts experience. Campers may enroll for any or all nine weeks, full or half day.

The number of campers we can accommodate is limited. We are giving preference to active Connelly’s Academy students. Registration will open in November 2019.

We are committed to offering the best possible martial arts leadership training. Grandmaster Connelly and his staff of dedicated martial arts professionals will create an extraordinary experience in which your child will learn to think like a Black Belt, train like a Black Belt and act like a Black Belt and, have fun, too. Your child will finish the summer martial-art fit and ready to meet the challenges of a new school year.
