Yes, except all 8-9 year olds must live on a youth dorm floor. No exceptions! Teams are housed on one or more floors. It’s possible that other campers will be on their floors. Meeting new friends is an important part of being a USGTC camper.
We will have at least three former Olympians at each Session. Our Olympic and world championship coaches and gymnast’s names will be posted on Twitter and our website once they are contracted.
Our campers are taught by former Olympians, elite coaches, college coaches, college gymnasts and private club owners. Our staff members are familiar with USA Gymnastics routines.
Once you become a registered camper, we will send you a list of things to bring such as the usual workout clothing, bedding, toiletries, etc. Most of our campers like to decorate their rooms. We will have special “Color War” awards for the best room decorations. We also have a costume night with a new theme each year. Again, it’s part of our zany exciting recreation program. Check out our spectacular dorm rooms.

It is the largest summer camp gym in the world! It’s a 45,000 square ft. gymnastics arena. Everyone works out together. Campers and staff really like it that way.
Boys and girls ages 8 through high school. We have all ages and ability levels. Most of our campers are considered beginning and intermediate gymnasts, pre team through level eight, but we also have nationally ranked junior gymnasts. Remember that we have staff that can spot and teach any skill done in gymnastics. Every gymnast gets the same attention at our camp.
It was developed at USGTC and is unlike any other camp-testing program. Our girls are first divided up by height. Each group is then tested for their ability in each Olympic event and placed in ability groups.
We have an incredible above ground pit system that our Olympians and campers rave about. Our foam block pit system is 124 feet long and eight feet wide.
A majority of our products are new each year. We use mostly AAI equipment and mats. All of our camp products are available for purchase, once camp is over. Contact us for our product list and prices.
Unlike most camps, our girls get a forty minute dance class every day. We also have private choreography sessions to develop optional routines. Click here for Floor Exercise choreography information.

Their gymnastics program is the same as older campers. They are housed in a special dorm with a special staff, and they go to bed a little earlier than our older campers. If a youth camper is part of a team, they are still required to live in our youth dorm. We permit an older camper to stay with a youth camper in the youth camper dorm.
Our counselors are in every dorm, at least two per floor. We also have dorm moms who help supervise our children in the dorms. Our owners, directors, and medical staff also live in our dorms. Our campers are monitored during their walks to and from their activities. Besides our own counselors, we have the Mount Holyoke College Security guards who provide 24-hour security patrol.
“Color War” is a unique program only offered at USGTC. Campers and staff are divided into two teams that compete for awards and points. Campers and staff are all involved in the many fun activities. Some are age group oriented so that our munchkins have a chance to win our many awards and points.
USGTC Color War promotes meeting new friends and helping other people. Our days and evenings are filled with fun recreational activities that do not take away from our required gymnastics program! Some are conducted in our new multi-million dollar student center. It houses our camp store, cafe, snack bar, and is used for some of our recreational activities.
We have movies, bingo night, treasure hunts, poster painting contests, camp dances, Awards Night, and Skit Night. We have recreational swims twice a day with “Color War Swim Contests.” We also have lots of outdoor tennis courts and a basket ball gym. USGTC is known for having 4-star facilities.
