After 11 amazing weeks of fun, friends and awesome gymnastics training, we’ve wrapped up one of our most incredible summers yet at IGC! Campers from 43 different countries, ages 7 to 17, joined us in our summer dedicated to Uniting the Gymnastics World. There were so many highlights that made summer 2013 so special ― we don’t even know where to begin!
Let’s take a look back at some of our greatest moments from summer 2013!
From the best gymnastics training facilities in the world to our amazing celebrity guests and fun-filled evening activities, there was something for everyone at IGC. Gymnasts of all abilities enjoyed specialized training for their level. From beginners just starting out to the Australian Junior National Team (who stopped by for two weeks), came to join us at IGC!
IGC summer 2013 saw over 35 Olympian and World Champion celebrity guests from all around the globe. Hailing from 10 different countries, they judged our cabin challenges, spoke about their own experiences in gymnastics and coached campers in the gyms!
Our IGC staff also played a huge role in the success of summer 2013. Coming to IGC from 12 different countries, each staff member contributed something very special to each area of camp. Because of our amazing staff members smiles were formed, memories were made and skills were completed!
Thank you again to all of our parents, campers and staff who made summer 2013 so special. We hope to see you all for another amazing summer in 2014!

Time flies when you’re having fun! We’ve reached the end of another wonderful week – the last of IGC summer 2013! Today we’ll say goodbye to our week 10 space cadets and our 2013 staff members! It’s truly been an amazing summer! Before we take a look at all the fun we’ve had over the summer, let’s take a look at week 10:
This week 2012 two-time Olympic Gold medalist and bronze beam medalist, Aly Raisman; 2008 Olympian, Sam Peszek; and National Team Members, Paul Ruggeri and Brandon Wynn stopped by to hang out with our IGC astronauts! We got to know more about our week 10 celebrities at a Q&A Session on Monday, hear their thoughts on Handstand, Strength and Flexibility on Tuesday, dance the night away on Thursday and watch their skills on Friday! Our celebrities took cabin and individual photos with campers and had an autograph session in the canteen! A week 10 highlight for campers (and staff) was Paul serving ice cream while Brandon danced in the canteen with campers! What an amazing week!
Our campers also earned cabin points through different cabin challenges throughout the week! Cabin 21 was our final Cabin of the Week winner earning 205 points throughout the week! Different cabin challenges are organized each day based upon the week’s theme. The cabin with the most points at the end of the week wins a pizza and soda party in the canteen! Some of this week’s cabin challenges were: Space Jam on the slip ‘n slide, Spaceball Tournament at the Spaceball Course, Asteroid Invasion at the pool and much more! Campers had a great time having fun to earn as many points as possible!
Don’t forget to pop into the canteen before heading home for exclusive IGC merchandise and souvenirs! Say hello to Paul Ruggeri and Brandon Wynn signing autographs in the canteen!

Stay tuned for a fun IGC summer 2013 wrap up! See you in 2014!
Our incredible IGC coaching staff works hard each and every day, inside and outside of the gyms, to be the very best gymnastics instructors they can be! Why are IGC’s gym instructors some of the best in the world? Because they learn from the best!
IGC’s Professional Coaches Diploma Program was created and developed by IGC CEO, Brent Klaus for those looking to improve their coaching skills. Gymnastics instructors from all over the world attend IGC every year to learn and grow from our intensive PCD program.
The IGC coaches who graduated from the Professional Coaches Diploma Program have spent countless hours in the gym, training, listening to important lectures, making lesson plans for campers, improving spotting skills and discussing techniques. They’ve learned to teach each and every gymnast that walks through IGC’s gym doors. That’s what makes IGC’s gym coaches some of the best and brightest in the world!
For their dedication and commitment to IGC and our campers in 2013, our gym staff is recognized by earning a diploma given to them by, Brent Klaus; IGC founder, Bruno Klaus; Safety Coordinator, Phil Frank; Gym Director, Constantin Petrescu; Olympic Gymnast and Coach, Abie Grossfeld; and long-time staff members and PCD graduates, Anthony Petrocelli and Ryan Mears.
The PCD program ranges from levels one through five. Congratulations to our all of our graduating IGC summer 2013 gymnastics instructors who are truly amazing at what they do!
See you in summer 2014!
We might be closing another awesome summer at IGC, but we can’t forget about our biggest IGC tradition! It’s time announce our final Most Dedicated Camper Awards and Five-Year Returners of 2013!
The Most Dedicated Campers receive plaques for their hard work, enthusiasm and commitment. Instructors vote each week on the gymnast in their group they feel has worked the hardest to achieve their weekly goals.
IGC is also happy to announce the loyal campers and staff members that have returned to IGC for five years or more. Each year IGC’s devoted returners receive a different custom-made sweatshirt.
Congratulations to our WEEK TEN recipients!
We know we’ll see our returners in 2014 whether it’s in the gyms or at the staff meetings, but we hope to see our Most Dedicated winners receive a special sweatshirt some day too! Check out the IGC website at www.internationalgymnastics.com for IGC 2014 session dates and special early registration rates!
We’ve had such an incredible summer at IGC, but it’s almost time to say goodbye! IGC summer 2013 has truly been an amazing experience for both our campers and our dedicated staff members! Tonight, many of our staff members have planned an extra special evening activity! Why? We’ve reached the final staff exhibition of 2013… and we’re going out with a bang!
We can’t wait to see what our staff members have put together! Campers headed to the Olympic Gym with smiles from ear to ear, anxious to get a glimpse of the final staff ex! But first, our week 10 campers showed us all the awesome dance moves they learned in the dance gym! Dancing to a spacey mix of pop songs, our campers rocked the stage and we loved every minute of it! Great job ladies!
Every year the last staff exhibition is about getting loose and breaking it down on the dance floor – staff style! Our counselors prepare a special dance for our campers, but this year our incredible IGC office staff had a special dance up their tie dye sleeves as well! The office girls got the crowd pumped up with a fun goodbye number from ‘The Sound of Music!’ Our counselors were up next with another dance medley that rocked that house! We’re sad to say that it’s the last time we’ll be throwing our hands in the air with Macklemore and the rest of the IGC crew! Thank you to tonight’s IGC dancers for a job well done!
After our staff dances, it’s time for the final showdown to begin! We’ll miss our talented gym staff flying, flipping and twisting through the air every Friday night! The final staff ex is always the time to throw your biggest and wildest skills so it was bound to be a fantastic finale! Our week 10 celebs, Brandon Wynn and Paul Ruggeri even joined in on the action! Brandon showed IGC why he’s the rings champion and Paul pulled out some amazing moves on high bar! A great end to a great summer! Thank you to all of our 2013 gym staff who always put on an awesome show every Friday night.
Our campers and staff come from all over the world to experience IGC’s camp magic! This week campers attended IGC from 11 different countries: Barbados, Canada, India, Mexico, Paraguay, Russia, Venezuela, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and of course, the USA! We hope to see you all in 2014!
The moment we’ve all been waiting for had finally arrived…it’s time to find out who are our final IGC 2013 Cabin of the Week winners! Our week 10 astronauts have been working hard and having fun earning as many cabin points as possible! Through dozens of cabin challenges during this week’s outer space rec to searching high and low for hidden alien staff members, our campers did a great job! The results are in and our winners are: in third place, cabin 8 with 165 points; in second, cabin 17 with 195 points; and the final Cabin of the Week winners for 2013 are…cabin 21 with 205 cabin points! Wow! Great job ladies!
What a great way to wrap up another awesome summer at IGC! Want to join us again in 2014? Check out the International Gymnastics Camp website for summer 2014 session dates and special early registration rates!
