I have seen this posted before and I am probably too late to do anything this year but I want my son to start visiting gymnastics camps at various colleges so he can get a feel for the campus and do gymnastics at the same time. What camps have you experienced and what colleges offer gymnastics camps? Thanks in advance! :)

We haven’t done any, but I do know that Ohio State and Penn State both have camps and I think Springfield College does one also.

My boys went to the Ohio State one over thanksgiving break (1 1/2 days) and are going back for the summer. They LOVED it. It was serious work and they were exhausted but the coaches were amazing. Theirs is just a day camp though so we stay in Columbus for the week (husband and I went to school there so good excuse to go visit).

They want to do the overnight one at Michigan next year. A friend of mine coaches the girls there and says the camp is great. But I have to convince my hardcore Buckeye husband to let the boys go into enemy territory ;)

There may be space still at Ohio State. The thanksgiving camp did not fill up.

Someone mentioned Springfield College. A young man from DD gym is on the team at Springfield. Does anyone have anything they could offer to educate me about Springfield?

My son has gone to Stanford Camp a few times. This year he is also going to Air Force Academy. Both session of Stanford have space for non-resident campers. So your son could go this year, if you came with and got a hotel.

What do you think of that camp? It looks intense which is good. My son doesn't really want to go to any camps where he is away from home- hes moy adventerous....but I want him to get a feel for different college campuses so when the time comes he can make an informed decision. :)

stanford is a large camp, so lots of groups broken up by level and often age, which is nice. Half the time is spent on basics. Not too intense, but a lot of gymnastics. Swimming every afternoon and fun activities in the evening. They also do a campus tour and a session about the road to college gymnastics.
