see the review from our last camp.

Our tenth camp was the biggest yet, and the first to feature an Olympian Coach, Wendy Bruce Martin!

adult gymnastics campThe next camp will be our 11th camp. We love how our camp family grows each and every time!

The Original Adult Gymnastics camp features structured training on vault, bars, beam and floor plus Tumbltrak and tramp! You may avoid certain events and double up on others if you prefer. In addition to group training we always have roaming coaches that you can approach to ask for individualized help. There are contests and games along the way too! The training you will receive is top notch, and we have groups for all levels so you are sure to feel right at home. Even if it's your first day of gymnastics you are welcomed. We have groups for competitive gymnasts too. We also include a Gymnastics Watch Party - always a hit!

THE very FIRST ADULT-ONLY GYMNASTICS CAMP!

Come to a 3-day camp where competitive and recreational adult gymnasts of all levels can learn at their own pace alongside our internationally recognized staff! We focus on the women's artistic events, but guys are welcome to come play too. 

In addition to 13 hours of instruction plus a clinic, there will be group meals in Downtown Portsmouth, a Gymnastics Watch Party, and a trip to the beach for those who would like to go! There are 2 major airports within an hour (Manchester NH and Boston MA). There is a smaller airport within a mile of the gym (Pease International). There is typically beach traffic coming from Boston north to Portsmouth in the summer, so please plan accordingly.


Highlights from our esteemed staff over the years include:


we always have beginner, intermediate and advanced groups for event training. 

This ensures that all athletes get the attention they need! We also have entire group warmups, contests, games and activities to ensure that we all get to know each other. Making new friends is one of the best parts of camp! 


Check out our Adult Gymnastics Camp FAQ page!


this year we will have a partner acrobatics/acroyoga class offered during open gym!

We will explore basic partner postures - both in L basing and standing including inversions and counbalances. The class will be accessible to all levels with a focus on safety and spotting. It builds wonderful connections and helps people to feel strong and empowered - usually they're shocked by what they are able to do!


TESTIMONIAL FROM A WINTER 2020 FIRST-TIME CAMPER!

Hi Gina,

Thank you for creating the amazing, supportive, diverse and professional Adult Gymnastics camp. You gave an excellent overview about what to expect in your emails before the camp, but I never could have imagined the wonderful energy that surrounded each of us as we did our best to move forward with our conditioning and skills.

You have created something much more than an adult gymnastics camp.


Thank you!

Mary


2 MAJOR AIRPORTS AND A BUS LINE SERVE CAMP.

There are 2 major airports within an hour (Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and Logan International Airport). There is also a smaller airport less than a mile away called Pease. Once you are in the area of Atlantic Gymnastics in Portsmouth, you should not need a vehicle, unless you want to go sight-seeing on your own. There are always folks willing to offer rides.

This bus line is a good deal: $52 round trip from Logan Airport (Boston) to Portsmouth and back. It's an 1hr and 25min trip and they have a new one departing every hour. Here is the link to the bus line!

covid questions

We have thought extensively about the safety of campers and staff and made the following decisions given the current state of the pandemic. While there is no decision that works perfectly for everyone, this decision is one that the organizer as well as the facility feels is best.

  • We are not requiring that camp guests or staff are vaccinated.
  • We are not requiring Covid testing for entry.
  • We are not requiring masking. You may mask if you prefer. Keep in mind there is no AC in the gym, and it gets hot.
  • If you are feeling unwell please do not attend camp sessions. Unfortunately there will be no refunds due to illness of any kind due to the planning required on our part to conduct a camp of this magnitude.
  • If in the unexpected event that camp must be canceled due to Covid or for any other reason, you will be refunded in full. We have successfully conducted 10 out of 10 camps so far without a hitch. Cancelation is highly unlikely.

The focus of this camp will be on drills and skills that adult gymnastics wish to learn or improve on the various gymnastics apparatus including trampoline and TumblTrak. Conditioning, dance, PT, flexibility, lifestyle tips, and performance enhancement for adult gymnasts will also be covered. You do not have to be in "good shape" to participate!
