Black Bear Lake Offers GymnasticsDecember 28, 2021
Summer camp can be the perfect place for kids with different interests to learn, grow, and make new friends. And while you can’t go wrong with sending your child to a general summer camp program, he or she may benefit even more from a summer camp that offers electives they are passionate about.
Black Bear Lake Day Camp offers a variety of unique and innovative electives that allow your child to choose the activities they want to participate in. The beauty of this is campers have the option to choose the same electives as the previous week to keep honing their skills or try something completely new in a safe, supportive environment!
From sports and fine art to camp favorites like gaga ball or cooking, your child can explore new interests and make lasting memories. One of our most popular camp electives happens to be gymnastics. Read on to learn more about gymnastics at Black Bear Lake Day Camp to see if it would be a good elective fit for your child this year.
About Our Signature Gymnastics
Every year, campers FLIP for a chance to learn or hone their tumbling and gymnastics skills. This elective is available for beginners to advance gymnasts and every skill level in between, so your child can participate regardless of their experience.
The best part about our gymnastics elective? It takes place in our very own trampoline park on-site! Garden State Trampoline Academy is widely regarded as New Jersey’s Best Trampoline and Tumbling Training Facility and for good reason. Inside the new 8,000 square foot air-conditioned facility, you will find:
- FOUR Olympic-size trampolines perfect for mastering jumps
- A 116-feet long Olympic Rod Tumbling Floor for perfecting trick
- A competitive double-mini trampoline
- Regulation size Spring/Cheer Floor to practice routines
And while the facilities are unmatched, it’s the coaches that make the gymnastics experience at Black Bear Lake Day Camp even more special. Head Coach Nastia was born and raised in Belarus and began training as a gymnast at age 9 due to her love for the trampoline. From there, the rest was history. Coach Natasha’s career quickly progressed as she consistently placed first in state, regional, and national competitions.
Coach Natasha( Nastia’s Mother) qualified for and won competitions including World Cups, European Cups, and even World Championships. And in 2000, she represented her country at the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, and earned a fifth-place finish!
Today, Coach Natasha coaches our competition teams. Her passion for gymnastics is apparent and her unique experience and expertise helps our teams excel. Campers are also taught by a team of equally passionate coaches, Leah, Gabbi, Courtney, McKenna, Amanda, Brittney and Liz at Garden State Trampoline Academy, who help train and encourage kids of all skill levels while ensuring everyone is having a fun and, above all, safe time.
