Woodward has 41 years of experience in setting the standard for tumbling and gymnastics camps nationwide. We offer the best combination of gymnastics, cheer tumbling, acro training and summer-camp fun anywhere! World-class training, state-of-the-art facilities, fantastic staff, and tons of recreation mean you’re going to have the best summer of your life!
Cheerleaders are placed in groups by their ability level. We have tumbling instruction throughout the day: morning instruction from 9:15-12:15P.M., afternoon open gym 3:00 – 5:00P.M. and evening instruction 6:30 – 8:30 P.M. We are proud to maintain a low teacher-to-student ratio of not more than 1:8 & offer up to 32 hours in the gym a week!
We are very goal-oriented at Woodward West and want your athlete to get the most of our their experience at camp. On Monday morning, we divide the athletes into their instruction group, where they come up with a group name and cheer, and they fill out 2-3 goals for each event with their “home group.” Each day after morning instruction, the campers meet with their “home group” to review their progress, get stamps on accomplished goals, and add new goals to their sheets.
Campers are housed with other campers their same age and sport. They enjoy clean, air-conditioned cabins themed after the Old West. There are bathrooms and showers in or adjacent to each cabin. Every cabin has a counselor in it, along with up to 14 of your new or old friends. For campers age 9 and under, see our “Youth Camp” section.

Woodward West’s Youth Camp was created to assist our youngest campers adjust to camp life. Campers ages 7 to 9 (and often older) live with a “mini mom” (girls) or a “mini dad” (boys) and have an earlier bedtime (9:30P.M.) so they get plenty of rest. All campers ages 9 and under are required to participate in our Youth Camp; however, older friends may request to stay with them.
The facilities at Woodward West are guaranteed to blow you away! Our gigantic 24,400-sq.-ft. gym has world-class, state-of-the-art training equipment from one corner to the other. Our equipment include: 2 full floors, 2 in-ground tumble tramps, 5 in-ground trampolines, 124’ long Rod Floor (into resi and foam pit), 5 tumble stations into resi pits, 2 tumble stations into foam pits, 9 loose foam pits, 9 resi pits, and overhead spotting rigs. You’ve never seen so much equipment in one place!
Woodward West staff use the latest equipment while applying progressive drills and techniques to teach stunting aspect of cheer. Twisting belts, resi work and trampolines, along with the skilled knowledge of our staff combine to provide a curriculum designed to teach aerial awareness flexibility required by today’s cheerleaders. Group stunting is instructed during designated times and open gyms with cheerleaders forming their own stunt groups at the discretion with coach supervision.
