Mark your calendars -- June 22-25 and June 26-28 -- for summer camps at the University of Kentucky. The camps are offered to female gymnasts ages 7-18. Campers must be 12 years old at the start of camp to stay overnight.

At the UK gymnastics camps, we are committed to providing a learning environment that is fun and challenging to the campers. Our qualified staff has many years experience in competitive level coaching and will provide a safe and productive atmosphere.

Campers will spend the day receiving gymnastics instruction with the evenings filled with activities and entertainment. Each gymnast will have the opportunity to train with top collegiate and elite coaches in the state-of-the-art Nutter Field House Gymnasium.
