What happens at lunch?
Lunch consists of much needed rest from the rigourous activities in the gym. You will have 45 minutes to an hour to eat, drink lots of water, play games in the reception area or watch TV.
Can I learn to do flips?
The level of skills taught are always dependent on the skill level of the student. However all of our instructors are qualified to teach flips.
Are there snacks available?
Yes we have a variety of granola bars for sale as well as drinks such as gatorade, snapple, water and juice. We also have ice-cream and candy bars.
What if I forget my lunch?
There are a lot of restaurants and deli’s around us that deliver, if we work together we’re sure we can find you a tasty and nutritious lunch.
Do we go outside the gym?
The entire camp will take place inside our facility.
Can I play games while Im there?
While we will have the TV on during lunch there is no other use of electronics during camp, your time here will be a time of physical play.
Can I come early or stay late?
During the summer the gym opens when camp starts so it’s not possible to stay early. Depending on our schedule there may be a class you can take once camp is over, otherwise it is not possible to stay later.
