THE 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 men are welcome to come play.
In addition to 13 hours of instruction plus a clinic, there will be group meals, a night out in Downtown Portsmouth, and an afternoon at the beach! 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).
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!

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!
