Build the strength, power and flexibility needed to excel in any other sport. Challenge yourself to succeed.
Trampoline: - Learn to be a high flier and experience free-fall again and again and again. Want to learn some cool tricks while doing it? Learn the cat twist, the corkscrew, the cruise and cradle while flying through the air on Ortona’s super-bouncy professional grade trampolines. You will have so much fun on the way up, on the way down, on the way up, on the way down, ...
There is also downtime planned during each day that will involve age-appropriate activities such as cooking, crafts, and other quieter entertainment. We want these budding gymnast/athletes to last the week!
