Gymnastics Coaches

At International Gymnastics Camp our coaches come from around the globe to teach our campers. We hire coaches who have experience in teaching recreational gymnastics, right through to elite and national team coaches. At IGC we look for coaches who will uphold our IGC coaching philosophies and values. Coaches at IGC work on progression based skill development and our IGC coaches teach in a kind, understanding and professional manner. Our coaching staff help our gymnasts learn by setting achievable goals and focus on technique and proper progressions – reinforcing and building on what each gymnast is working on at their home gym. No matter the skill, we know a better understanding of a swing on bars to a hurdle on floor will enable gymnasts to propel their skill achievement. Our coaches are devoted to helping our campers feel accomplished in each training session, articulate with their feedback, punctual and have a good understanding of class management and lesson planning.

Recreation Staff

Our recreation staff at International Gymnastics Camp add their passion, creativity and enthusiasm to create the best traditional Summer camp experience for our campers. Our IGC recreation counselors facilitate and design all our activities outside the gym that take place throughout the day. During recreation, every activity across camp has the potential to be worth cabin points. The rec counselors design a ‘challenge’ on every activity they’re stationed on for the week and are the true architects of the camp magic fun outside of the gyms. The cabin points accrued throughout the week contribute to ‘Cabin of the Week’. Cabin of the Week is a prestigious award that is won by the cabin that has collected the most points across all aspects of camp life. Points come from the cleanliness in the cabin, embracing the theme of the week, the challenges at each recreation activity every day, the Wednesday evening activity, Handstand + Strength & Flexibility Contest, pit fluff and the Cabin Challenge Photo. And best of all, the winners of Cabin of the Week get a pizza party in the canteen after social hour on Friday evening. The recreation program is designed to give every camp a traditional Summer camp experience. At IGC our recreation staff are enthusiastic, resourceful, imaginative and adaptive.
