    Thanks for this comprehensive list. There are also many traditional camps who offer fantastic gymnastics programs as one of their program options. I know some camps who have college coaches run their programs in the summer so these may be worth looking into for the right kind of girl as well.

      Ginger, Thanks for your comment.

      The primary problem I usually have with traditional summer camp programs is not the coaching, which as you say could be a great college coach or college gymnast, but the quality and lack of availability of the kinds of specialized gymnastics equipment competition gymnasts are used to, particularly in-ground gymnastics safety pits. Most traditional camps have inferior gymnastics equipment. Even the best coach is somewhat hamstrung by lack of the best equipment.

      Still, you make a good point and a good coach can definitely do some good things if they have even acceptable, safe equipment. We will definitely make an effort to identify good gymnastics programs in traditional summer camps. They could definitely be an option for girls who want to go to a traditional camp, but don’t want to totally stop their gymnastics training.

      If you know of any good traditional camps that have good programs, coaching and/or equipment, let me know.

    My brother suggested I would possibly like this web site. He turned out to be totally right. This article truly made my day. You can not imagine just how so much time I had spent looking for this information! Thanks!

      Danny Warbutton, former owner of Gym Dandy’s in PA, we know is an excellent coach and we are a Maddy Curley (Stick It) fan. With them both at this camp, it is sure to be a fun and worthwhile experience. We also have great memories of gymnastics on the beach. There is far too little of that anymore. A great camp concept that we must also recommend this camp, for all the above reasons (Elite coach, movie star and the beach!).

    Hi, I live in Lexington, KY. The University of Kentucky offers a camp like this. I was wondering why it was not listed under University Camps.
    Thanks!

      If you check the University of Kentucky website right now, you will not find a gymnastics summer camp web page listed. The University evidently deletes their summer camp pages every year after the summer (which is very poor website policy and management, by the way, since it orphans any links from websites like mine). When they do so, it creates an error on my website for a link that does not exist and to fix that error (which can affect my search engine rankings), I must delete that link, which I have done. Now before every summer, I do review my popular summer camps page, but the UK website practice of deleting the page every year puts it so far down on any search engine listing that it makes it difficult to impossible to find. And truthfully, I do not keep a list of the universities that have poor website management policies, nor do I assume that gymnastics camp programs that have such poor website management also have poor camps. But I am too busy to track down every year and re-list university summer camp programs that are not producing National level programs and also have poor website management problems.

      You might be better served contacting the UK gymnastics, and indeed the entire UK athletic department web manager, since UK deletes almost all of their athletic camp pages (all but one right now at this very moment), and tell them about good web page management. Deleting their camp pages has two effects. First, it creates the kind of link and link policy problems I just talked about and makes it hardly worthwhile for sites to link to their camps, because it makes more work every single year for us. Second, it also probably tanks their own gymnastics summer camp search engine rankings in relation to other similar summer gymnastics camps and other university summer gymnastics camps in the region. Third, if parents look at the UK gymnastics website, for much of the year, there is no indication that there even is an annual summer gymnastics camp. Even if complete details are not yet available for the next year, keeping the summer camp page up with a note that information for the next summer will be available at a later time, lets parents know that UK is a gymnastics summer camp option.

      Please not that I have no animus against the UK Gymnastics program. We, in the gymnastics community, fully support any and all colleges and universities that have gymnastics programs, for either men or women. I have now started to make a list of all university programs that delete their gymnastics summer camp pages (UK is not the only one) and I will attempt to update more accurately every year. But big budget university athletic departments should hire better web managers, who know how to preserve “link juice” and continuity for their summer camp programs, instead of making us do their work for them.

    Summer Camps

    Parents ask me every year if they should look into sending their gymnast to a summer camp program. I always have the same answer; yes, if chosen correctly. Some summer camp programs do a fantastic job of teaching new skills to gymnasts, especially when at the level 5-7. The gymnasts have many means of equipment to learn giants, back handsprings on beam, flyaways, etc. However, my skepticism stems from how much training they actually receive. Camps that allow gymnasts to choose how often they train, I personally would avoid. Most gymnasts only will attend their required workouts of 2.5 hours a day. For five days that is only 12.5 hours a week. That’s like paying $72.00 an hour!!! I want the gymnasts to have fun during summer camp, but I want them to go to camp with realistic goals and know what they want to obtain before they arrive at camp. So with that in mind, I am sharing a link to a listing of summer camps.
