FLIPFEST – NAIGC’s Annual Gymnastics Camp

999669_527200074013397_1943549414_n

Hey PCG!

Hope everyone is having an amazing summer! For the second year in a row, NAIGC is offering a fun gymnastics camp for NAIGC members in August, and we want PCG to go!! The camp is hosted at an amazing facility in Tennessee, and  the dates are Friday, August 16 to Sunday, August 18. Depending on how many people are interested, we’ll either drive down or fly down. The cost of the camp is $160 (including food and accommodations). Please contact James Sui immediately if you want to go. 

If you want to get a sense of the camp / gymnastics facilities, watch this FlipFest promo video! (But at the NAIGC weekend, the camp is geared toward college students, not younger children and visiting Olympians.)

 

Below is the full invitation email from NAIGC. But in case you won’t read all that… here are some highlights:

  • The weekend includes time in gym, on the high ropes course, swimming in the lake, making camp fires, and much more! You will have use of the gym, lake, jet skis, pontoon boats and the rope course on the grounds as well as other amenities.
  • The facility includes a tumble trak, rod floor, channel bar, single rails over a resi-pit, a loose foam pit, and trampolines. All women’s events have standard landings as well as loose foam pits. Special guest and coaches will be in the gym for the weekend as well.
