We are still working on the feasibility of a Summer 2021 Adult Gymnastics Camp held at Atlantic Gymnastics in Portsmouth NH. Obviously, COVID has affected our ability to make plans for this international event with assurance. Rapidly changing local rules and regulations - combined with ethical considerations as well as our own personal health concerns mean that we aren't at the point yet where we can make a decision.
We understand your desire (and need for some) to plan ahead and we wish we could better accomodate that. We will update this page as soon as clear information allows. I plan to make the final decision no later than May 1, and if camp is a go (fingers crossed!!) I will extend the registration deadline up until June 30 (it would normally have been May 30) to help accomodate entries.
If we have camp, our goal dates are Friday July 30 -Sunday Aug 1, which coincide with watching some of the Olympic Event Finals together on Sunday (Friday and Saturday there is no gymnastics scheduled for the Olympics.) Please save those dates if you are going to be interested in coming. If you're afraid you'll miss our next announcement once plans are firmed up, please join our mailing list if you haven't already. In addition, this page will always contain the latest updates.
All the info we currently have on camp appears below. I appreciate your support and understanding during these uncertain times. Stay safe, and keep positive as best as you can!

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).

TESTIMONIAL FROM A WINTER 2020 FIRST-TIME CAMPER!
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.

Taking a quick break from event rotations to strike a pose!
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 tumbletrak. 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! You will always be permitted to work at your own pace.
