Gymnastics Camps

Active Kids offers a variety of full day and half day camps for kids of all ages.

Kids will have fun in our amazing gymnastics facility and learn gymnastics skills on all our apparatuses such as a large trampoline, climbing wall, ropes, rings, uneven and parallel bars, a large spring floor, and much more! Campers will develop confidence, motivation, and physical literacy, and be challenged to progress their skills. Campers will also have snack / lunch breaks, and younger aged camps will have craft time. Pending weather, some camps may also do an outdoor water fun day! Full Day camps visit the UBC Aquatic Center for a swim on Friday afternoons. Those who cannot swim independently, will stay in the kiddie pool with the gymnastics coaches. Those who can swim on their own, will still have to pass a short swim test. Remember your towel and bathing suit! Additional program specific details are listed below. For more information about our summer camps please view our Summer Camp Welcome Package.
