Hands up if your child has endless energy, is always moving, and is eager to try something new! Vancouver Phoenix Gymnastics is offering half-day and full-day summer camps that will keep your child engaged, learning, and physically active. Vancouver Phoenix Gymnastics is one of Canada’s largest and most successful clubs. Operating in two facilities – both located in Vancouver – the club consistently produces some of Canada’s top gymnasts who are successful at both the provincial and national level.
But don’t let their impressive credentials scare you off! Summer camps are the perfect opportunity to try something new. If your child hasn’t ever set a toe on a gym mat, that’s perfectly fine! The coaches and camps are structured that any level of experience will thrive. For 2021, Vancouver Phoenix Gymnastics has three Summer Camp options:
For two-hours per day preschool kids can enjoy the week-long Scamper Camp. Packed with fun games and activities the participants will learn basic gymnastics skills. No prior experience is necessary. The organizers know that 3 and 4 year olds can’t focus on any one activity for 2 hours so the camp, in addition to snack time, will have secondary activities such as a story time or simple craft.
Split into Junior Camp (5-7 years), Senior Camp (8-12 years), and Full Day Camp (5-10 years), Adventure Camp is a week long camp. The Junior and Senior camps are 3.5 hours in length (either morning or afternoon); the full day camp runs 8:45am – 4:15pm. The organizers customize the camp based on the skills of the participants. If the students don’t have prior experience they will spend their time learning introductory skills. If the campers have experience their camp will focus on increasing their skill level. In addition to gymnastics instruction, the camp will include a daily snack break, time outdoors (weather permitting), and / or a craft activity.
Taiso Camp is structured in the same manner as the Adventure Camp but instructed entirely in Japanese. Talk about a two-for-one experience! Honing a physical sport while developing language skills. Participants must already have some proficiency in Japanese in order to participate in the Taiso Camp.
