When we're not doing gymnastics, children are busy playing games, making crafts, enjoying and exploring the gym during supervised free time, and participating in special exercises based on the theme of the week.

Summer Camp 2017
July 10 to September 3
Age 4 (as of September 1) to Age 13
At KGC we understand the importance of physical activity in a child’s development. Gymnastics is the foundation sport for all physical activity and sports. Early participation in gymnastics develops the most fundamental movement skills, physical and motor abilities, social and emotional abilities and performance skills that carry over into all aspects of life. We have designed a summer camp to ensure children keep active and have fun while learning gymnastics and interacting with other children. Your child’s safety and enjoyment are top priority. The majority of the day is spent in the gym learning gymnastics from our qualified coaches and playing with the other children during organized games and activities. During our down time we create fun step-by-step crafts and have some indoor and outdoor free time. Our facility is fully air conditioned and we have a large space out back to play. We have a second floor viewing area, lunch/snack and craft room. We walk to the nearby park weekly; every week we take a bus trip to the Tomlinson Aqua Pool to swim; and every week we alsotake a bus trip to the Splash Pad located at Ontario Park! We will also have weekly themes, special guests, and fun activities such as zumba, ninjastics, dance and more!
Proper gym attire is very important for the safety of our participants.
- Comfortable athletic clothing that is close fitting and allows movement of the body - body suit or t-shirt and shorts recommended (no jeans, or buttons or zippers on shorts please)

Every Thursday the children and coaches take a bus trip to the Tomlinson Auqua Park. There will be a maximum ratio of five children to one adult and there are life guards at the pool. Every Tuesday the children and coaches take another bus trip to the Splash Pad located at Ontario Park. At least once per week, the children and coaches will walk to the park in the afternoon. The Supervisor and at least one other coach will attend all outings. The Supervisor will bring a first aid kit, sunscreen, a cell phone in case of emergency, and water for the children.
KGC camp is offered to children aged 4 through 12. We ask that all campers are able to use the washroom themselves. Children will be grouped with similar ages and with friends and siblings, as requested upon registration.
