During the school holidays we run many different camps, for both members and non members. This gives children who are not currently members an opportunity to access our facilities and also test out the sport.

 

Gymnasts take part in an exciting programme of activities including gymnastics training, tumbling, fun and games, team building activities, face painting, rhythmic ribbon work,  arts and crafts, fitness, strength and flexibility training.

Gymnasts taking part in our camps are split into ability and age groups, so that they can get the most out of their time with us. They will learn moves suited to their level of ability as well as take part in joint activities and games with all camp gymnasts

The camps aim to introduce gymnastics to beginners and to increase the skill sets of the more experienced. The camps  are suitable for girls aged 5-17 years old and there are places for complete beginners all the way up to advanced and elite.

In addition to our 5+ camps, we also run pre-school camps for children age walking-5 years. These camps are two hours long, and take the form of our Open Play Sessions which are parent assisted.
