there will not be a winter 2022 adult gymnastics camp

*ATLANTIC GYMNASTICS - PORTSMOUTH, NH*

aside from during the pandemic, we have held adult gymnastics camp every winter and summer since 2015.

unfortunately, current circumstances due to the world situation are preventing us from holding the winter 2022 camp. 

Our hope is to resume this international adult gymnastics camp that welcomes beginner through advanced athletes in Summer of 2022, but we haven't made firm plans yet. The camp normally happens during Martin Luther King Weekend in January Sat-Mon (Jan 15-17 2022), and on the last weekend of July Fri-Sun (July 29-31 2022). Please save those dates if you are interested in coming. You can save your spot in camp by filling out this form - no deposit required!

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!

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

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!
