adult gymnastics camp faq
Our staff last year included THE Wendy Bruce Martin, 1992 Olympic Medalist!
1. Do I have to have experience in gymnastics or be in perfect shape to come?
Absolutely not! We always have some total beginners who come to camp. It is helpful if you have a base of fitness, since 13 hours of camp over three days is a lot in a short time period! But, if you don't and your stamina or strength isn't the best you are more than welcome to come, do as much as you can, and learn a lot by watching.
2. Do you cater to advanced gymnasts who compete?
Yes! We split groups by ability so that advanced gymnasts are catered to. We also allow for gymnasts to move groups if, say, they are very strong tumblers but very weak on bars, that way gymnasts can get the best training experience on all the events.
3. Will there be pressure to keep up or to attend every session?
Absolutely not! You will always be permitted to work at your own pace, and to observe if you are not capable or interested in actively participating so that you can learn by watching! And there are four sessions, it is common for some folks to skip one to either sight see in the area or just get a little extra R+R in between sessions.
