CREATING A CULTURE OF KINDNESS SINCE 1971
BE A PART OF THE KINDNESS LEGACY TODAY
Welcome to our IGC Kount on Kindness page.
KOUNTING ON KINDNESS SINCE 1971
PIONEERS OF SAFETY & KINDNESS
In 1971 the Klaus Family founded International Gymnastics Camp with a vision to build a place that united the gymnastics world in a fun, kind, safe and positive environment. Nestled in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, more than 150,000 campers from over 60 countries have called IGC their home away from home. As the longest Accredited ACA Gymnastics Summer Camp, the Klaus Family has been pioneers of safety and kindness in the gymnastics world since the beginning and look forward to the next 50 years and beyond!
THE IGC KINDNESS PROGRAM
KOUNT ON KINDNESS
With our Kount on Kindness campaign, IGC leads the way by teaching young people to take care of one another. Kount on Kindness aims to increase caring behavior by teaching campers the social benefits of unselfishness and connection. Kount on Kindness is designed to create a workout environment where everyone feels safe and accepted for a mutual sense of belonging, to celebrate team diversity and treat everyone with respect and kindness and to support a place where gymnastics students, parents and coaches work in harmony to promote kindness.
BE A PART OF THE KINDNESS LEGACY
A KIND WORKOUT ENVIRONMENT
Our goal is that every camper leaves camp even more in love with gymnastics than when they arrived: inspired and motivated by their own accomplishments, the gymnasts they trained with at camp, and our IGC staff’s kindness, encouragement and support.
RECOGNITION OF KINDNESS AT IGC
KOUNT ON KINDNESS AWARDS
Each week at IGC campers are nominated by their coaches and counselors to received a Kount on Kindness award in recognition of their dedication to the kindness philosophies at IGC. Receiving the Kount on Kindness award is a testament to our IGC campers making a conscious effort to create a workout environment where everyone feels safe and accepted, to celebrate team diversity and to treat everyone with respect and kindness and to support gymnasts, parents, coaches, and the gymnastics community working in harmony to promote kindness.
