2014 Gymnastics Day Camp
Monday, June 23- Friday, June 27
Ages 6 and older

 

Morning Session: 9:00am-11:45am
Full Day: 9:00am-4:00pm

Camp Philosophy

Our goal is for each camp to experience gymnastics instruction in a safe and progressive manner. 
The master staff will provide experienced technical instruction, and along with our trained
student athletes, provide a fun and encouraging atmosphere.  Campers will be able to perfect
current skills, as well as progress toward learning new ones.  The University of New Hamsphire
student athletes and master staff have spent a great deal of their lives developing the level of talent that
has enabled them to get this far.  We want to share that experience and passion with each and
every camper.  We encourage every gymnast at camp to grow as an athlete not only with a better
skill level, but with a new and deeper appreciation for what it takes to be a Gymnast!

UNH Associate Head Gymnastics Coach
