Gymnasts of all levels, from beginners to advanced, experience the thrill of learning new gymnastics elements while perfecting their current skills. Our energetic, safety certified coaches works with small groups to identify individual strengths, teach proper technique and encourage 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 6/1/17.
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 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.
17-foot high, Super-fun Waterslide
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.
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.

Summer Camp customers can register quickly and easily online for all camps, transportation and after-care options through our online registration system. This system allows you to instantly enroll your child and manage your camp account throughout the summer.
If you did not create an account in 2016, please read our Parent Handbook for detailed instructions on how to set up your account. If you already have an account, simply log in to the “Parent Dashboard” and select the camps and weeks of your choice. Note that we do not accept registrations over the phone. Please register online or fax/mail the application. If faxing, you must call to confirm receipt.
Please leave all toys and non-camp related personal items at home. This includes handheld games, jewelry, cell phones and iPods. Chelsea Piers is not responsible for lost or stolen property.
A non-refundable $175 per week deposit is required at the time of registration. The balance of tuition must be paid in full by May 10, 2017. All campers who register after May 10, 2017 must pay the entire tuition at the time of registration. Checks will not be accepted as a form of payment after June 1, 2017, nor will they be accepted for walk-ups or for those enrolling in camp the same day. Credit cards or cash will be accepted forms of payment. If you are extending camp weeks for your child on or after May 10, the credit card on file will be charged.
Transportation can only be added or edited up to the Tuesday prior to camp session, and Aftercare up until the Thursday prior to the camp session. Please note that if you chose transportation you will be emailed or called with your pick-up time the Friday before your child starts camp.
Campers who remain at Chelsea Piers after 4:30pm will be placed in our Aftercare Program. This program allows parents the chance to complete their workday and affords campers a chance to unwind and relax after a long day. Campers may be picked up in the Field House between 4:30pm - 6:00pm. Aftercare will be billed according to use and no pre-payment is required at the time of registration.
Cancellations and Making Changes
If you paid-in-full and would like to cancel camp before May 10, 2017, all of your money will be returned to you except the $175 per week cancellation fee. After this date, no refunds will be granted for absences, transportation delays, or withdrawals for any other reason. Refunds will not be granted in the event that an act of war (declared or otherwise), strike/work stoppage, natural disaster or reasons beyond the control of Chelsea Piers, disrupts or forces the cancellation of camp.
There is a $45 change fee for each change made before May 19, 2017 to the original application. On or after May 19, 2017, there is a $45 change fee plus the actual cost of camp. If there are any changes regarding transportation, your child's attendance at camp or early pick-up, please contact us via one of the following methods.
Walk-up Fee and Other Fees
All registrations received after 4:00pm on the Thursday prior to the start of desired week of camp incur a $50 walk-up fee.
Aftercare is available in the Field House for an additional fee of $40 per day or $150 per week from 4:30pm - 6:00pm. Parents will be charged a $25 late fee every half hour for picking up their children after 6:00pm.
