What Are Gymnastics Camps?

Published on: Jan 09, 2019

Gymnastics is more than tumbling up and down a bouncy blue mat. It’s balance, body control, strength, and charisma. 

Andi if you’re a gymnast, one of the best places to learn those skills is at gymnastics camp.

Gymnastics camps offer athletes a chance to sharpen skills, gain confidence, and compete in front of potential college coaches. But camp isn’t just for varsity-level athletes; camp is for you, whether you’re a kid looking to get started, a mid-level athlete trying to get better, or a high schooler wanting to get noticed. 

Types of Gymnastics Camps

No matter what kind of gymnast you are—even if you’re just starting out—you can find a camp that meets your needs. Types of camps include:

  • Youth camp: Introduces kids to gymnastics and gets them comfortable with basic skills.
  • Basic gymnastics camp: Focuses on fundamentals and basic skills under the instruction of a coach, also gives the athlete an opportunity to perform in front of prospective coaches.
  • Team camp: Teams attend together and compete at as a unit, typically circuiting through each Olympic event.
  • Elite gymnastics camp: Develops specific skills like beam, bar, or tumbling and immerses athletes in intense training and competition. Typically for more advanced athletes looking to get noticed. 
  • Prospect camp: Gives athletes an opportunity to get noticed by college coaches they’re hoping to compete for. These are sometimes invite-only.
