|Who are the camp counselors?
|Camp will be run and chaperoned by the members of the University of Maryland Gymnastics team and coaching staff. In addition, we will have coaches from all over the nation working the gymnastics sessions during the day, including additional NCAA college coaches.
|What is the counselor to camper ratio?
|Campers will be divided into groups of approximately 15. Each group will have AT LEAST 2 counselors assigned to them.
|Will campers be chaperoned as they travel from one place to another?
|ALWAYS! Any movement within the SPH building by a camper will include at least two other individuals. However, there should be very little, if any, movement that is outside of the gymnastics practice facility, locker room, or dance room areas.
|Who is the medical personnel present during camp?
|There will be a certified athletic trainer present during all gymnastics sessions, and on location with the campers at all times.
|What will be done if my daughter is feeling ill?
|She will be taken to the athletic trainer, who will assess the illness/injury. NO over the counter OR prescription medication will be given to the camper by the athletic trainer, including Epi-Pen administration.
|If a camper gets sick or injured prior to their session, can they attend another session?
|If there is availability in another session, we can switch the registration...BUT we do expect all sessions to fill early!
|What should my camper bring for lunch?
|Campers should plan to bring a lunch that will NOT be refrigerated as there is VERY limited space to accommodate refrigeration. If this is a necessity, please inform the staff prior to arrival for your session.
|For those campers with food allergies, we ask that you inform the staff prior to arrival if you cannot be in the same room as a specific food item. We ask that campers wash their hands before and after meals to avoid any possible allergic reactions.
|Will there be a gym store open to buy apparel?
|There will be an in-gym store open during the camp, but we ask that you plan to purchase these items in the beginning of the first day and at the end of the second day. Items consist of Maryland Leotards, t-shirts, pants, shorts, grips etc. We will accept cash or Venmo/CashApp payments. Unfortunately, we cannot accept checks or credit payments at this time.
|Are parents allowed to take their daughters away from camp?
|**PARENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PICK THEIR CAMPERS UP WITHOUT NOTICE**. Once the camper is on site, we must be aware of where they are at all times. If you must drop off a camper late or pick up early, the staff must be informed prior to that camp day.
|How much is the camp?
|The camp is $325 and full payment will be due upon registration.
*a small online convenience fee will be applied at checkout
|Are there any discounts available?
|Multi-week discount- $20.00 discount applied for any camper registered in more than one camp session.
Sibling discount-$15.00 discount applied for second sibling.
|I noticed camp is two days. How will the session be scheduled?
|The summer 2023 gymnastics camps will be two days, as registration fees have reflected. This will allow for better scheduling with staff and counselors to ensure the best attention to the campers throughout all session evenly, and to better accommodate those who will be traveling from out of state. There will be a sample schedule posted on the website for your convenience.
|What if the camper’s skills competed and training have changed prior to the camp?
|You may visit your account at https://www.oasyssports.com/MarylandGymnasticsCamps/global-login.cfm to make any updates to your registration forms prior to arrival!
|What is the cancellation and refund policy?
MARYLAND GYMNASTICS CAMPS has a strict NO REFUND policy and no refunds (partial or full) will be issued under any circumstance.
In order to help protect your registration payment in the event you suffer an injury or sickness before or during the camp/clinic that prevents you from participating, we highly encourage you to consider purchasing Registration Saver, an AIG insurance product to cover your registration investment. This policy also covers your registration fee in case the event gets cancelled due to weather or if you are unable to attend due to weather. This can be handled during or after registration but must take place at least two weeks prior to the camp/clinic start date. This will provide relief from our "No Refund Policy" should an issue occur. The cost of Registration Saver is a small percentage of the price of the program. There is no deductible for these policies.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, please call AIG directly at 866-690-6859. They are open and available for questions concerning coverage and services 24 hours each day.
IN THE GYM
|How are the campers grouped?
|The campers will be placed in groups based on gymnastics level. Each camper can expect to be with at least ONE other gymnast from their gym if close in gymnastics level.
|What skills will my daughter be working on?
|The skills the campers work on are individualized based on each campers’ need. When arriving to the rotation, the camper should inform the coach at each event what skills they would like to work.
|How much gymnastics will the campers take part in each day?
|The campers will have seven rotations of gymnastics on the first day, and eight rotations of gymnastics on the second day. Each rotation is about forty minutes long.
