YMCA Camp Leif Ericson - One Week Program

Gymnastics Camp

All children, regardless of experience, age or ability can benefit from this amazing, dynamic sport!  In order to ensure that camp is fun, challenging, and appropriate for all children, campers are grouped for age and progress level to ensure success for all.


As part of YMCA Camp Leif Ericson, our values-based program goes beyond simply showing up at in the gym.  We strive to incorporate many of the aspects that make our day camp program special, including:

  • Fun activities at camp!  While taking a break from gymnastics instruction, campers may ride a horse, paddle in a canoe or enjoy an archery class!
  • Camp energy!  Before starting a gymnastics activity or practice, campers enjoy morning skits and songs.
  • Interactions with our world class group of role models - summer camp staff!


  • Build new friendships and learn about how to be a team-member.  
  • Enhance various skills and fundamentals in groups according to age.  
  • Learn the skills of gymnastics while practicing techniques.
  • Practice good sportsmanship and motivate each other to succeed.
  • Engage in various age appropriate activities that enhance social emotional skills, physically activity and self-confidence


  • FREE daily bus transportation for your child to/from YMCA Camp Leif Ericson
