 “We're excited for another year of gymnastics camp! Every year, we look forward to having girls of all abilities come and experience what our year-round gymnastics program is like” says Tracy Burkholder, the Youth/Gymnastics Director at The Connection. “In addition, the girls get experience in other activities like swimming. It's a really great experience for gymnasts of all levels."

The Connection’s Summer Camps run from June 23-August 15. Parents can choose any week or weeks that best fit their schedule! Girls Gymnastics camp is a half day camp that runs from 1:00-4:00pm.

Looking for an all day camp option? Talented counselors lead campers through a fun filled day during the SummerFun Camp (8:30-1:00pm).
