At Chelsea Piers Gymnastics Camp, gymnasts of all levels, from beginners to advanced, experience the thrill of learning new skills and mastering old ones. Our experienced, highly qualified staff works with small groups to identify individual strengths, teach proper technique and help campers reach their highest potential. Whether a child dreams of mastering Olympic-level twists and vaults or simply wants to experience the excitement of bouncing on something more springy than a bed, he or she will love Gymnastics Camp. Campers must turn 5 by 6/1/14.
The Field House runs USA Gymnastics competitive level programs for both boys and girls. Summer programming for competitive gymnasts may vary. Please contact the Field House directly for specific information at 212.336.6500.
Each week, campers are placed in groups based on age, ability and gender. An age and level-appropriate curriculum is developed for each group. A low camper/instructor ratio encourages personal attention and maximizes safety.
Girls utilize the balance beam, uneven bars, vault and floor while boys work on floor exercise, pommel horse, parallel bars, horizontal bar, still rings and vault. All gymnasts enjoy state-of-the-art tumble tracks, in-ground trampolines and deep foam pits. In addition to gymnastics, campers learn to rock climb on an artificial rock surface designed specifically for children. In our spacious dance studios, gymnasts develop grace, stamina and their own natural movement capabilities. Emphasis, particularly for younger campers, is placed on the fun of movement as well as the fundamentals that are the basis for success in all sports.
The Field House is home to New York City's largest competitive and recreational gymnastics training center. Facilities include two column-free competition spring floors, in-ground trampolines and multiple sets of equipment for each of the men's and women's Olympic events. Deep foam training pits, tumble tracks and overhead spotting rigs create the optimal safe learning environment. Campers receive dance training in our spacious dance studios.
Our dynamic staff of experienced professional instructors are hired not only for their knowledge of gymnastics, rock climbing and dance, but also for their ability to relate to and teach young children. The gymnastics staff includes international competitors and special appearances by past and present members of the U.S. Olympic teams, when available. Mature and responsible counselors also provide supervision and support throughout the day.
On designated days, summer campers can cool off and enjoy the fun and excitement of our waterslide. Parents are notified when to send their child to camp with a bathing suit and towel.
