International Gymnastics Centre

| May 30, 2012 | 33 Comments


My eight-year-old daughter, Madeline, has wanted to try gymnastics for as long as she has been able to talk! We’ve had her trying out so many other activities that she has not had the opportunity…until now. She was ecstatic to get the chance to go to International Gymnastics Centre’s Spring Break Camp! A friend from school also registered and I have to tell you, the girls had such an amazing time that they can’t wait to go back!

Now it is time to sign up for their SUMMER DAY CAMP and I highly recommend it!

International Gymnastics Centre offers a number of exciting full and half-day camps all year for boys and girls ages 5 – 12. Camp is conducted in their spacious 15,000 square foot state-of-the-art gym, which is conveniently located right off the I-80 freeway in West Sacramento, just minutes from Natomas, downtown Sacramento, and Davis.

Our internationally acclaimed staff includes world champions, national team members, and an Olympian. Our goal is to develop your child’s self-esteem and confidence through the sport of gymnastics. Each day of camp will be filled with five rotations of gymnastics instruction on each Olympic event. Your children will gain focus, balance, strength, and flexibility. Most importantly, they will have fun!

The gymnastics rotations include a huge foam pit, a 40-foot tumble track trampoline, an elite-sized floor, large trampolines, ring towers, vaults, uneven bars, balance beams, and more.

In addition to gymnastics, students are treated to guest instructors for lessons in dance, science, and martial arts.Β  Healthy, delicious meals are provided by local vendors such as Chipotle, Subway, Old Spaghetti Factory, and Panda Express.Β  The kids take home fun and creative art projects.

During Summer Camp, they offer swimming on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at the West Sacramento Rec Center! (Transportation provided by united Christian center.)

Whether your child is already a little gymnast OR NOT…this camp includes kids of all levels…and guarantees fun!

My daughter is the perfect example of a first-timer that was nervous. The instructors were friendly and patient with her and catered to each of the kids. Madeline walked away with new skills, more confidence, memories of a fabulous time, and the desire to learn more!

  3. Michelle Hewitt says:

    Having 3 kids, all in different age ranges, it’d be nice to have something for the oldest to do, so I can take the younger two to a more age appropriate event, without my oldest getting bored!

  4. Elle Johnson says:

    We’re entered. My sons love gymnastics!

    My boys are such acrobats here at home, having a week of Summer Gymnastics Camp to foster their love for all things slightly Olympic, would be so exciting. Proper technique teaching would be fab. They love to play like monkeys all day, this would be so perfect. Thank you International Gymnastics Centre.

    Done & Done. My 5yr old daughter would absolutely love the opportunity to bounce, tumble and hang around. She watches her older cousins cart wheeling around and tries to mimic. πŸ™‚ crossing out fingers…

  15. Did both. My 6 yr. old son loves IGC but has never attended summer camp there before. He asked if he could go this summer so it would be fantastic if we won :).

    Hi, I was already subscribed to your newsletter, and I did the fb post. My son Toby is very active and athletic, but he’s never done gymnastics before. I think he would really enjoy it. We’ve never been to the International Gymnastics Centre – just learned about it through your newsletter. I know Toby would have a blast!

  18. MELISSA S says:

    I liked both and would like to have my 6yr old son check this out. Ive heard of IGC but never been there. We have been trying to figure something for him to do this summer and I think this would be perfect! he is always jumping and flipping around. Winning would be great for us right now

  19. Amy H says:

    I’ve loved your site and do get your emails and liked International Gymnastics Centre. I have a VERY HIGH ENERGY 5 year old boy that would love to do this. I would love to have him experience this. He loves to jump off the couch, summer salt, tumble, and do cart wheels around the house.

  20. Steven J says:

    I liked both you and IGC fb pages and subscribed to your email notifications. This would be a wonderful opportunity for any kid not just my kid. This would allow my child to be outside of the house and learned a new sport and socialize with others that he most likely wouldn’t have before.

  21. Amanda says:

    I already subscribe to the Sacramento sidetracks newsletter, and I liked International Gymnastics. I would love this camp for my daughter!! Not only will it give her something to do this summer, but she just LOVES gymnastics!

    I have subscribed to the Sacramento sidetracks newsletter and “liked” International Gymnastics. I think my five year old son would absolutely love it there! We have four kids in the family so it’s important to let the kids develop their own interests. This would be a great opportunity for him!
