Seasonal Camps

Whether it’s Winter, Spring, or Summer, Ortona’s Seasonal Camps are always JAM PACKED with fun. Spend a day or even a whole week with us! Campers will participate in a variety of activities such as crafts, baking, outdoor games (weather permitted), and (of course) gymnastics! Combining artistic, acrobatic and rhythmic gymnastics, this camp provides participants with the ultimate grounded, flipped out experience. Kids will learn movements on the floor, vault, balance beam, uneven bars, pommel horse, rings, horizontal bar and parallel bars. It’s pure gymnastics through and through. We will also throw in a craft or two to keep everyone on their toes!! Check out our Camps here for specific days and times. Happy Camping!

A summer with Ortona Gymnastics, means a summer you’ll never forget! Whether it’s a day camp, or one that lasts all week, you’ll have fun every minute you’re here.

We also take our Campers to one of Edmonton’s pools to cool off from the summer heat. Back at the gym we do tons of fun Gymnastics activities as well as indoor games and even baking activities in our Party Room!
