Camps

Gymnastics

Gymnastics camps at The Cave are a blast. With highly experienced coaching staff available to work with kids new to gymnastics or those trying to improve their skills for competitive gymnastics, we provide teaching for all levels. Our coaches are experts at finding the fun in developmental progressions and providing games with a purpose. Our staff includes coaches who have competed and instructed at high levels but who also fully understand how to ensure that kids love their camp experience. Gymnastics is too much work not to enjoy the process!

Gymnastics camps will provide an environment of work and direct payoff. The body control and strength developed in this sport are unmatched. Regardless of whether or not your child wants to pursue gymnastics as a competitive sport, participating in gymnastics will yield lifelong benefits. Age range for our Gymnastics camps is 4-10, and each camp is broken up according to age and skill level.

Ninja Parkour Camp (10:00 AM – 2:00 PM)

Come to Ninja Parkour camp and learn how to run literally anywhere. Learn from deeply experienced coaches how to safely and efficiently navigate any environment. Parkour Ninja camps will develop strength and agility, helping walls, ropes, and gym blocks to become aides in movement. The discipline also allows freedom and creativity as children ages 7-12 work out how best to use their abilities to overcome obstacles.

Parkour Afternoon Training Camp (3:00 PM – 7:00 PM)

The Parkour Department will be launching its classes in camp format this summer to stay within the safety guidelines for COVID-19, these will take the place of our normal summer classes until restrictions are lifted.  We want to make the most of this new format, so the Afternoon Parkour Training Camp is intended to provide enhanced training, covering more content in much more detail than would usually be covered in three weeks.  In addition students will be doing games and obstacle courses, some free play as well and by the end of class will have made their own PVC Parallettes for use in training that they can take home.
