Woodward has 41 years of experience in setting the standard for gymnastics camps nationwide. We offer the best combination of gymnastics 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!
Girls and boys: Athletes are placed in groups by their ability level. We have instruction throughout the day: morning instruction, afternoon open gym and evening instruction. All Olympic events, plus dance (girls) and trampoline are taught. We are proud to maintain a low teacher-to-student ratio of not more than 1:8. Up to 32 hours a week in the gym!
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.
Each week campers have the opportunity to decorate their cabin and compete for cabin awards.

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.
