Gymnastics Summer Camps

//

 

No other Summer Day program can offer quality instruction by experts in beginner through advanced gymnastics in a fully air conditioned facility that teaches gymnastics all year long.
While our program offers a fun-filled good time, it also enriches the development of children by providing attitudes and skills that carry over to many of life’s activities.  Our goal at Gym Cats is to build a physical and mental foundation for all sports and to promote athleticism and good health through participation in gymnastics.


Individualized Instruction
- Low student to teacher ratio.
- All students are grouped by age.
- No experience necessary in any activities; we specialize in teaching beginners!

Games and Events
In addition to our outstanding gymnastics program, our afternoon activities keep the energy going through the whole day.  We will be doing games that are designed to be fun and interactive, and the kids won’t even realize they’re building up speed and agility!  Dodge ball, capture the flag, and other high energy games will also be a highlight of our afternoon line-up.  Introduced to our camp in 2014 is our spacious Gaga Pit.  Gaga ball is a high energy game played within the inflatable pit, for up to 6 players at a time.  Children will also participate in our special themed events, such as, carnival, color wars, intra-squad competition, and pizza party.  To keep the fun and excitement going, random days throughout summer camp will be designated Pajama Day, Crazy Hat/Hair Day, Super Hero Day, MiSmAtCh Day, etc.

We will be going on exciting outings every Thursday to such places as Life The Place to Be, Homefield Bowling, Hudson River Museum, and Yonkers Tennis Center.  Campers will enjoy a fun filled bus ride to each outing with all of our counselors and camp director.
