Another sports activity at Rockbrook is gymnastics. Girls can explore gymnastics as a recreational sport and way to push personal growth. Instructors spend time offering classes on fundamental techniques and skills, using games and group activities to match every girl’s level of experience.

Build core strength and practice your balance and swinging skills on the high bar in the Rockbrook gym.

Rockbrook has traditional gymnastics equipment like the beam, bars, spring board, and tumbling floor. Flexibility, balance, and strength training are achieved through practicing tumbling, rhythmic gymnastics, and the balance beam. On the balance beam, the girls progress through basic skills like foot placement and core muscle control to more advanced moves and dismounts.

Once campers are confident in the basics, they can move to different activities like the high bar, mini trampoline, and advanced floor exercises. For example, some girls like to do flips with the mini trampoline, while others spend time stretching to learn tumbling and floor exercises like a back walkover.

Girls that have never tried gymnastics before can walk away with greater flexibility, strength, and confidence in the power of their bodies. Campers can learn new skills and get exercise, all in a supportive environment with their friends. It’s amazing what moves girls can make when they put their minds to it!
