Look out for Spring Fever!
In this cold, blustery weather, the one shining hope in the white expanse of Edmonton is that spring is coming. But with the longer days and melting snow comes Spring Break, which has been known to lead to multiple known cases of SPRING FEVER!
If your kids start bouncing off the walls and going stir crazy this Spring Break, they may have a case of SPRING FEVER!
Do you feel like you could use a little break? Have them come join the fun and work off some of that energy at Ortona's Spring Fever camps! There will loads of fun, games and crafts at our gymnastics camps!

Who is Ortona? Gymnastics For All
Ortona Gymnastics Club, is a not-for-profit, independent sports organization that was founded in 1976.
