Gymnastics Summer Camp 2014 (Advanced)
What is Camp Like?
Gymnastics Camp is from 4:00-8:00 PM on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. During the four hours, gymnasts are split into groups and spend time on Vault, Bars, Beam, and Floor. There is a 30 minute dinner/ snack break in the middle where the kids get to eat, relax, and be social. Thursday night every week is game night. Gymnasts compete in games to win prizes! This
Why Gymnastics Camp
Water Tower Gymnastics Camp is a program that allows gymnasts to work out on all four gymnastics apparatus. Gymnasts work new skills on Vault, Uneven Bars and Balance Beam, while working to improve upon their tumbling skills on Floor. Our program allows gymnasts to learn new skills in a fun environment after our competition season has ended. While the main purpose of our camp is to become a better gymnast, gymnastics camp is also a great opportunity for the participants to make new friends and have a great time.
Who Can Sign Up?
Gymnasts who want to participate must be able to do a minimum of forward and backward rolls, headstand rolls, handstand rolls, cartwheels and round offs. There are eight weeks of camp to choose from. All gymnasts currently enrolled in Water Tower’s Tumbling and Gymnastics Program are strongly recommended to attend at least four weeks of camp, to give them the best opportunity to prepare for the upcoming competition season. We can only take 40 gymnasts per week, so hurry up and register!
