Girls- Athletes are placed in groups by age and ability level and have one 2 ½ hour mandatory practice period a day. All Olympic events and trampoline are taught. We are proud to maintain a low teacher-to-student ratio of not more than 1:8. Campers can take advantage of an additional 4 ½ hours of open gym in our fully equipped and staffed facilities.
Boys – Our Men's Program focuses on optional and compulsory skill development during the required morning classes. Strength, flexibility and drills in the afternoon including a trampoline rotation every day. Evening training is an open workout designed for individual skill development.
Campers are housed with other kids their same age and sport. They enjoy country living in rustic cabins with bunk beds and individual storage space. Each cabin is equipped with air conditioning and an adjacent bathroom. A counselor lives in each cabin with our campers to make sure that every one of our guest has a rewarding social and learning experience.
Woodward developed a Youth Camp to assist younger campers aged 7 to 9 in adjusting to camp life. Youth campers have the same schedule, workout opportunities and use of the facilities as our general camp. They do, however, live apart from older campers with a “mini mom” (girls) and “mini dad" (boys) and have an earlier bedtime (9:30). All campers age 9 and under are required to live in the Youth Camp, however older friends may request to stay with them.
Woodward Camp takes great pride in offering Visiting Teams and Visiting Coaches exceptional coaching, clinics and educational opportunities with our staff and visiting VIP’s, as well as the opportunity to train with their own coaches and athletes during the Open Workout periods. Take full advantage of added optional time whenever our gyms are not utilized for class instruction. Teams of all sizes are welcome but teams of 20 or more athletes will qualify for extra fun and recognition in the form of a pizza party, banners, t-shirts and brochure photos. Contact Tracey Rosenfeld at (814) 574-0921 for more information on Gymnastics teams and coaches.
Coaches who participate in the Visiting Team program can take advantage of daily educational clinics with our staff and VIP’s and work with their athletes in our gyms! Download an application and learn more about our Visiting Coach program at the link below.
We also host a specific Power Tumbling program Weeks 5-12. A form of gymnastics focusing on levels 4-Elite under the governing body of USAG. This program focuses on rod floor, double mini, and trampoline to teach both compulsory and elite level routines. This does NOT include competitive trampoline.
