More than a fun, athletic activity, gymnastics schools young ones in cartwheels and handstands to combat future spoke shortages and shoe droughts. Prepare for an upside-down future with today's Groupon: for $22, you get two half-day camp sessions for children ages 3–12 at ASI Gymnastics (a $44 value). Camps take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Choose from the following locations:
The safety-certified high fliers of ASI Gymnastics bestow the basics of flippery on youthful campers within a multicolored somersaultorium. In the half-day camps, adolescent acrobats frolic among the foam-filled pits and learn the secrets of pommel horse-whispering under instructors' discerning eyes before being divvied up according to skill and age. Assigned to one master acrobatologist for the remainder of the day, groups of campers spin the gym's wheel of events, swapping activities every 15 minutes and rallying together for scheduled group games and challenges. Snacks are served a couple of hours into each session, and morning campers should pack a lunch to eat from 11:30 a.m. to noon. Camps are scheduled throughout the year, and parents may enroll one juvenile jack jumper in any two camps that fit their convenience, or enroll two siblings in one session.
Though ASI Gymnastics sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
ASI Gymnastics helps children of all ages develop a lifelong passion for athletic activity through the practice of gymnastics. In addition to improving strength, endurance, balance, and coordination for children 12 months to 18 years old, the instructors use gymnastics training to bolster confidence and encourage mental growth alongside physical development. Age-appropriate programs begin by introducing fundamental techniques before moving on to more demanding skills, such as handstands, standing back handsprings, and cartwheeling through laser security systems. ASI Gymnastics also caters to varying levels of interest by providing competitive team training as well as casual birthday parties complete with trampolines and games.
