the (Unbelievably Fun!) 2017 Adult Gymnastics Camp Summer Edition - Portsmouth NH

2017 summer adult gymnastics campWe had so much fun gathering together for 3 days' worth of training and social opportunities!

Summer adult camp this year was an absolute blast! At our 5th semi-annual camp, 35 athletes came together in Portsmouth NH from all over the U.S. and Canada for the experience of a lifetime. Each and every gymnast worked on skills new and old and made friends that will last a lifetime. We had a great mix of returning campers and brand new ones--including some who were trying gymnastics for the very first time!

check out the official camp video.

Camp featured training on the four women's artistic events, plus physical preparation, tramp and tumbltrak. We had a few games and relays sprinkled in and some cross-training in the form of yoga and dance as part of our warm-ups. Our athletic trainer Meghan Hunt was on hand to provide treatments and make sure everyone stayed in tip-top shape.

camp flow

Camp started Friday, July 21 and ran through Sunday, July 23. Friday and Saturday night we spent hanging out in Downtown Portsmouth after training. Saturday afternoon we enjoyed a relaxing lunch at a popular Lobster House in Kittery Maine (yes, Maine is right around the corner!) and afterwards relaxed at our Mindset Clinic by the Pool. Sunday afternoon we shared a lovely lunch outdoors followed by a beach trip at the scenic Wallis Sands Beach in Rye, NH. All of the coaches love camp so much that they were returning from camps past, so everything ran very smoothly for the coaches and the campers alike.
