​International Gymnastics Camp is committed to providing a kind, healthy & safe environment for all our campers in all aspects of camp life. IGC programs across the board are built on the foundation of enriching every camper’s love for gymnastics, developing social skills, making lifelong friendships, enhancing teamwork skills, gaining independence and making camp magic memories that last a lifetime.

1. You get to train the kindest, best & healthiest workout environment! 

At IGC we are proud to pave the way for what should be considered the healthiest workout environment! IGC’s focus in teaching is on technique and proper progressions – reinforcing and building on what each gymnast is working on at home. Coaches do not need to over spot a skill if the proper progressions and drills have been set out to build a strong foundation. Balance it key, literally! You do not need to live at the gym to be awesome at gymnastics. Take breaks, don’t over train and ensure you have a life outside the gym. Elite gymnasts don’t need to be at the gym for more than 24hrs maximum a week! This philosophy is truly embodied at IGC!  

2. You get to enhance your Teamwork Skills & gain Independence!

Summer camp is an awesome place where you get to flourish in an environment that allows you to develop teamwork skills as well as gain independence at the same time! Often summer camp is the first place campers have truly been away from home for an extended period of time. In the canteen our campers get an understanding of what it’s like to budget money, in the cabins the campers are uncharged of their bunk area and in the mornings the campers get to get themselves ready for the exciting day ahead! Our IGC counselors are there every step of the way to support our campers but the campers to get a great sense of being independent and more self-sufficient. Gaining teamwork skills at camp is almost a give in. You get to learn how to work with your cabinmates on keeping the cabin tidy and welcoming for all campers. During training you build a great sense of camaraderie with your new teammates for the week. And at recreation times you get to work with your cabin to gain those all-important cabin points for your chance to win cabin of the week! 

3. You build the best Friendships and make Camp Magic Memories that Last a Lifetime! 

Camp friends are like the embodiment of camp magic! The friends you meet at camp are usually friends for life. It is incredible to see all the friendships made over our 50 year legacy and the bond of each friendship is so strong! The memories you make with your camp friends last a lifetime and for more than 150,000 campers, IGC feels like a home away from home now, forever.
