Summer is almost here and there are a slew of camps available for local Culver City kids. But how do you choose which one?
Well, if your child has a penchant for tumbling, cartwheeling and leaping, then maybe a gymnastics camp is the way to go.
Find out if you and your kids are interested in a gymnastic summer camp when at 8450 Higuera St., opens its doors on Sun. May 20 from 1–3 p.m. for the school’s annual Summer Camp Open House.
The free event will allow visitors to tour the facility, meet the instructors, sample camp activities, win freebies and even meet and greet members of the USA National Team: Heather Chan, Shirley Gon-Gibbs and Elizabeth Petrosyan, who will perform on site.
The 2012 summer camp program will run from June 18 – Sep. 7.
“Our goal is to offer a healthy summer camp for children, which will get them away from videogames, computers, phones and right into physical activity,” Tanya Berenson, the school’s general manager stated in a release.
Among the facilities available at the largest gymnastics facility in California are the three 3,000-foot spring tumbling floors, full-size trampolines, multiple beam bar stations, spotting belts and a foam filled pit.
The facility also offers camp activities beyond gymnastics, including hip-hop with world-renowned dance instructors from UCLA, yoga, swimming and rock-climbing.
“Whether your child is interested in gymnastics for fun, recreation or has high ambitions in the sport, we provide an educational, healthy, safe and professional environment for the kids,” Berenson said.
