BELIEVE Camps: Teach kids self-worth, confidence, goal-setting, physical endurance, skill development, and leadership.
All camps are sold out for summer 2021. Thank you for supporting our day camp program and we hope to see you again soon!
Our training studio is fully airconditioned and all classes and camps will remain open during the hot summer weather.
Take your child’s camp to the next level with our multi-activity camps in our air conditioned training center! Believe Camps are pure gymnastics fun; each week of camp includes 25 clinics of skill-based training, including gymnastics (bars, vaulting, balance), obstacle course, trampoline, tumbling and speed skills.
Personal items are isolated and campers use only their own personal assigned equipment. Any shared equipment is sanitized in between campers using the shared equipment, such as bars or beams.
Campers learn and perfect basic skills as they progress through the week so that by the end of the week the campers have their own proficiency level. Full-day camps are 7 hours long, and typically have 4 training clinics per day, with lots of time sandwiched in for fun activities. Half-day camps are 3.5 hours in the morning session only. Campers are separated into pods of 10 or fewer campers for the entire week. A daily check-in log is created for contact tracing purposes.
The policy regarding face masks is currently being revised pursuant to new rules published by the Oregon Health Authority. In the interim, face coverings are required for all gymnasts 5 years of age or older, except when engaged in physical activities in the training studio.
Check-in time is 8:45 AM. Check out time for half-day camp is 12:30 PM, and checkout time for full day camp is 4:00 PM. Our facility is air conditioned so campers will have a fun-packed day regardless of the weather. Weather permitting, campers are encouraged to take lunch and snack breaks outside under the patio.

Trampoline grip socks are required for campers of all ages to use our trampolines. Trampoline socks are available at check-in for $5 to $8 per pair, and are re-usable for future camps or classes. Wash in cold water and air dry after each use.
Priority availability will be offered to Oregon Essential and Emergency Workers if space is full. Family Membership is $59 per year, and if your camper is a student in any of our clubs you are probably already hold membership. Believe Camps are ideal for children ages 5 to 13; ages 5 through 6 are generally limited to half-day camps only. Believe Camps provide a different and exciting method of instruction for youth. The Believe Camps program activities take place entirely within the safe boundaries of the Clubhouse. Our program is designed so that beginners learn with experienced students. Groups are skill-based, without regard to age; with this method, the younger children develop new skills, while the older campers learn confidence and leadership. Believe Camps has a very high success rate with beginner-level gymnasts, while allowing experienced gymnasts to maintain physical condition and form. Parents report that their children come home after a day of camp with a renewed enthusiasm for continuing their gymnastics skills.
Anytime Flex Passes are good for any full day camp dates, up to 15 days maximum, for 1 year from the date of purchase for $599.95 for one camper (member or nonmember, pass price is the same). Flex Passes are non-refundable and non-transferable from the assisgned child. We offer 65 days of camp throughout the year. Your child's Flex Pass is tracked in your Customer Service Portal and your can reserve camps there also or on this reservation form. Flex Passes can be used by the day or by the week, or even for drop-in, providing space is available.
Each full day of camp includes six 50-minute training clinics which equal three weeks of regular gymnastics and cheer training, in a single day. The last clinic of the day is actually a regular USA Gymnastics format class, giving campers a realistic class experience. Blocks of time are scheduled between clinics for rest, play, group games, snacks, and socializing. The important feature is that after each day of camp the kids go home with a realization that they have improved on their skills.
Campers take their snack and lunch breaks outdoors on one of our two covered patios, (weather permitting) for extra sunshine and fresh air. Equipment is sanitized after each use by a single athlete, physical distancing is maintained at all times. While the equipment is sanitized throughout the day, the entire clubhouse is disinfected nightly, for the highest level of sanitation possible. The HVAC system includes a recently installed fresh-air exchange system with dual intake filter systems which constantly replaces indoor air with fresh air with filters to remove dust and pollen both outside and inside the training studio.
While the kids are having fun, the physical intensity is often greater than the children realize; for that reason, leisure time and breaks are required. Parents may observe an increase in consumption of carbohydrate and fatty foods; this is a normal and healthy reaction for the campers. Camp staff encourage the campers to consume extra amounts of water during the camp week, and parents should do the same at home to avoid sore muscles caused by dehydration. Campers must bring a water bottle and keep it on person at all times in the training studio.
Members receive a 10% discount off of the regular camp price. Camps are sold and reserved online by logging into the Customer Service Portal. You can create a Portal account using only your email address, name, and phone number.
The recommended minimum age for full-day camps is 7, but parents should be mindful if child has not experienced to be a full day away from home. Children age 5 and older are eligible for half-day morning camps (junior camp). Parents are welcome to remain on the premises in designated seating areas; space is limited.
