Camps run throughout school holidays; Easter and July & August.

Sugarloaf Gymnastics Camps cater for beginners to experienced gymnasts. For beginners camps are a great way to have fun and to try the wonderful sport of gymnastics out. For experienced gymnasts camps are a great way to get that extra bit of training in to help improve their skill level and work to get closer to achieving their gymnastics goals! Gymnasts will work on all apparatus in the gym. Our camps are mixed age and mixed experience but children will be grouped together by age and experience level in order to allow the best possible progress, challenge and enjoyment from camp.

Camp begins with a group warm up and stretch to prepare the gymnasts for the day ahead where they will work on Floor, Vault, Bars, Beam and Fast Track (trampoline).  As with our classes, our camps are progressive with lots of new skill development happening throughout every day at camp, every day is fun, different and never the same!

Please note that children must be able to go to the toilet themselves, unaided, including re-dressing to attend. Parents/ Guardians drop and go and are not permitted to stay for any age group class/camp/workshop. Each camp will have its attendance age specified.
