What is a day or week at camp like?  Campers will keep arriving from 7am – til about 8:30am.  The first part of the morning will be organized games, activities, open gyms, and gymnastics.  Around 8:30am to 9:00am all the campers will go through Stretch, strength, and fitness activities to get their bodies warmed up for the day.  At 9:00 to 10:30am everyone will be broken into groups for gymnastics.  We do an hour and half of gymnastics training everyday!

  • If the camper repeats the behavior, the coach will inform our management whom will inform the parent about the behavior and the camper may be asked to sit out or even go home for the remainder of the day.
  • If the behavior continues, a formal meeting between parent and our management will be scheduled to discuss strategies for correcting the behavior of the camper.  (Our hearts become invested and we really do want to help and find out “why” this is going on)
  • If nothing else works, we reserve the right to suspend or expel the camper from our program without a refund.
