Our Location

Camp Core TKD is operated out of the Core Taekwondo facility which is conveniently located in Downtown San Mateo. Our address is 86 E 3rd Avenue, San Mateo, 94401.


The camp was filled with fun-packed activities such as swimming and playtime at the park. When summer ended, she asked us to sign her up again for the next summer.

We signed our 8 year old up at Camp Core TKD and he had a lot of fun! He performed in a kid's circus, went swimming, had a picnic in the park. The great news is this opened him up to try Taekwondo (something he was a little reluctant to try previously) and now he hopes to get his black belt!

- Scott, parent of student from Summer Camp 2013, 2014 & 2015

My son took 2 weeks of camp at Camp Core TKD. He ranked it at the top of his list of summer camps!  Master Meggie's weekly camps offer fun themes; she combines having fun, playing games, learning, working together, and making new friends. With a background in elementary education, along with her five black belts, Master Meggie is a remarkable instructor my son loves to listen to and learn from.  As a mom, I couldn't be more happy with what my son is learning and the fun he is having! He can't wait for summer camp this year!

- Christina, parent of student from Summer Camp 2014 & 2015

My son and daughter had a fantastic time at the Core TKD summer camp this past summer! They were so sad when it was over that they're already excited at the thought of going back next summer. With a different theme each week, their interests were always piqued, and we were comforted that the kids were safe and well looked after by Master Meggie and her team of counselors. Ninja Training and Circus Week were just two of the favorites in our house. The after-care program was also a very welcome added bonus! Fun, creativity, physical activity, a sense of a parent I couldn't ask for more for my kids.

Spaces are limited and we expect to fill up fast - early registration is the best way to avoid disappointment!

Is my child ready for the adventure?
While our camps are a good fit for most children, parents should take into consideration that our camps require some light physical activity from campers each day and that the ability to function as part of a group are important traits of successful campers.

Please note: Core Taekwondo is a martial arts school and not a licensed day care. We operate under a come and go policy which allows all children participating in our programs to enter and leave the premises without permission or supervision and as a result we are not a day care facility, nor are we licensed as such.
