2020 Camp Dates:

Monday, July 13- Friday, July 17


9:00am – 3:00pm


Tuition for the full week is $550, and includes a leotard and t-shirt. Should a family choose to cancel, there is a policy of no refunds, but the student would still receive their t-shirt and leotard. Siblings receive a 10% tuition discount. Payment plans are available. Contact us for more information.

Important Information:

Participation in this camp requires a signed media release form, as we will take pictures throughout the week and film the showcase at the end of the week.

It is not possible for a camper to participate in only part of the week (like in a Sports Camp), as campers will work all week long on their team showcase performance.

Extended Care:

  • Enroll for AM Care for $8 per day. AM care begins at 8:00am.
  • Enroll for PM Care for $15 per day. PM care begins after camp and goes until 5:30pm.
  • Extended care will fill. Pre-registration is REQUIRED.
  • There is no sibling discount for extended care.

What to Bring:

Every camper will get a t-shirt and leotard for wearing during the week. Campers should wear both each day. Each camper should bring clothes for outdoor activities, including tennis shoes. Every camper should bring a nut-free snack and nut-free lunch.


Sign up via email, phone, or in person. Enrollment in this camp requires participation in the entire week.

We start each day with conditioning exercises to get the body warmed up and make campers stronger! Every day, we do conditioning at a different gymnastics apparatus to keep the muscles and mind challenged and having fun!

Gymnastics Class:

Every day we spend an hour in class. We visit two gymnastics apparatus each day, visiting all apparatus at least once over the course of the week. Coaches will adapt for each gymnast’s particular skill level, so each athlete will be challenged, no matter their age or group.

Open Gym:

Gymnasts get free time in the gymnastics center, for work or play – they decide!


Every day, we spend an hour out doing some athletic activity. It’s not gymnastics, but it’s good for the body to work its muscles in other ways to keep fit and have fun.


Gymnastics is full of fancy flips and tricks, but all that fancy won’t look so fancy if we forget about the small stuff! Technique is a time to focus on the details, not just what you’re doing, but HOW you are executing your tricks.


Gymnasts need to be flexible in order to do upper-level tricks well. We alternate each day between active stretching exercises (engaging muscles in their range of motion) and passive stretching (holding still in a position, resting in a stretch).

Showcase Practice:

Campers will work together to create a group routine to showcase floor skills, rhythm, timing, and teamwork. They’ll work on it all week, and then perform for friends, family, and other campers on Friday at 2:45pm!

Skill Drills:

Back to basics! We spend a half hour doing the most basic gymnastics skills over and over and over and over. Practice makes perfect!
