Our newly renovated 26,000 sq. ft gym is the home base for many athletic activities at camp. Every Friday, children of all ages enjoy the bounce castle. On other days of the week, the gym hosts organized games, relay races, and sports with our athletic coach.
Every child will have a daily dance and movement class. These sessions give children a chance to stretch their bodies and teaches them how to use their bodies to express their feelings and engage with peers safely.
