Gymnastics Camps in Alberta, Canada

Canada has far fewer summer Camps than the USA. Our biggest is GymRep in Montreal. With heightened border security in the USA 2017, consider friendly Canada as an alternative.

My home Province now has 3 very good residential options.

1. CALGARY – Mountain Shadows 20th Annual Residential Artistic Gymnastic Camps (Brochure)

July 17th – 22nd WAG
 July 24th – 28th WAG

2. CANMORE Illusions 2nd Annual Residential Adventure Camp (Brochure)

Aug 13-19 WAG
Aug 20 ( coaches heli-hiking)

3. EDMONTON – First annual Pine Valley Residential Summer Gymnastics Camp (Brochure)

July 2-8 MAG & WAG
July 9-15 MAG & WAG
July 15-22 MAG & WAG
July 23-29 MAG & WAG

I’ve coached at the first two Camps and can personally recommend both. And I’m planning to travel to Pine Valley to get involved with the launch. The Kriangkum family has been putting this together for years. When comparing costs consider accommodation, food and activities. All three Camps are excellent value.
