If you are thinking about adult gymnastics summer camp, you must love gymnastics! And that's truly all you need to be a great candidate for camp. For more on our camp, go here:Adult Gymnastics Camp Info!
Here are some common reasons people think they can't go to camp, and why they simply aren't true!
Reason #1: I can't get time off from work!
Why it's not true: You have plenty of time to plan! Camp starts on Friday at 5pm and ends Sunday at 2pm. If you simply cannot make part of camp, no problem! Just join in the sessions that you are able to. Also, if you are going to miss one day but want to 'make up' some of the hours another day (such as the Monday after camp) we can try to arrange for this.
Reason #2: I don't have the money!
Why it's not true: If you save just $25 per week up until camp, you should have plenty of money for camp ($200, or $150 if you come with a 'team' of 3 or more) plus extra money for the hotel, which is about $200 for the two nights. If you share a room with someone, that will bring the hotel fee down. We can buddy you up! Also, there are plenty of inexpensive food options nearby including a grocery store all within walking distance. If you are a coach you can also work part of camp to reduce or eliminate your camp tuition. Payment plans are also available. Just ask! Also, if you think of the average cost of a vacation or weekend getaway with all the entertainment costs and eating/drinking, this camp is a bargain.Need transportation from Boston to Portsmouth? This bus line that is fairly inexpensive: $46 round trip from Logan Airport to Portsmouth and back. It's an 1hr and 25min trip and they have a new one departing every hour. Here is the link to the bus line!
Reason #3: I won't have anyone to go with!
Why it's not true: Adult gymnasts will all become instant friends because we all share the love of gymnastics in common. Also, if you are a member of our Facebook group, you can 'get to know' the other participants ahead of time. For our facebook group, see the link at the bottom of this page.
Reason #4: I am not good enough for camp!
Why it's not true: This camp is for all levels, from beginner up through 'open' or level 9 and 10. Adult gymnasts are all very supportive of each other and encouraging. It will be possible to adapt what you spend time on and there will be separate groups based on level. If you need to take a break, take one! No big deal. We will have a beginner, intermediate, and advanced group during camp.
Reason #5: I am not in good enough shape to survive a 3 day camp!
Why it's not true: Camp will be 'at your own pace.' Sitting out and watching is always an option and you will learn plenty just by observing and learning from watching others. Also, Friday night will be planned as a 'light' day that should not leave you sore. Saturday and Sunday you will have options to choose which events you work so that you can manage any aches and pains you sometimes have as an adult gymnast. We are all adult gymnasts so the schedule will be planned to allow us all to survive the weekend! The intensity level will be lower than in a typical adult 'class' where you are trying to cram everything into one hour! Many people are coming to camp primarily to have FUN and meet other gymnasts. No one will push you beyond your capacity.
Reason #6: I'm not feeling the whole leotard thing!
Why it's not true: Leotards not required! As long as your clothing will not get caught in the equipment or while you are being spotted, you can wear anything you like.Just Like Fine Wine: Adult Gymnastics Facebook Group
