Camp includes gymnastics, games and crafts
Submitted by Palatine Park District
Gymnastics has a long history at Palatine Park District, dating back to the program's beginning in 1977. At that time, it was a developmental program offering classes that were taught at Fremd and Palatine High Schools.
Today, the program still focuses on the developmental aspects of the sport, offering tot, preschool, beginner and intermediate classes, and is also home to the Palatine Gymnastics Club Competitive Team.
The gymnastics season begins Monday, Aug. 27, this year, with a wide variety of programming options for boys and girls. Girls are introduced to the fundamental skills used in vault, bars, balance beam and floor exercise. Boys are introduced to vault, bars, rings, pommel horse and tumbling. For a complete listing of classes, see the fall park district brochure which was mailed on July 20.
Until the new fall season begins, Gymnastics Camp is a popular option offered in the summer. Gymnastic Camp is designed for children who will be entering grades two through eight in the fall. Along with lots of time in the gymnastics facility, located in the Community Center, camp will include crafts and games, and all campers will receive a T-shirt.
Gymnastics Camp will be held 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Friday, beginning Aug. 13. Camp fee is $175 resident/$263 nonresident.
