Do taekwon-do in the sun and surf at our annual beach campout and workout. All taekwon-do students, friends and family are welcome.
We will have workouts Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. There will be a big potluck dinner Saturday night and a brunch on Sunday. In between, there will be plenty of time for exploring the park and beach.
We have four individual camp sites with water (one with an electric hookup), which will allow 30 people to stay over on Saturday night. There will be two camp site accommodating eight people on Friday night and another single camp site with the same capacity on Sunday night. Campers who want to stay two nights will get space on a first come, first serve basis.
Since Cape Lookout is about 90 minutes from Portland, students are also welcome to come over for the day and work out with us. And there are many other accommodations available in Tillamook and Oceanside.
