What makes STRIVE camps different? 

At STRIVE camps we focus on YOUR goals.

We’ll ask you what skills are important to you and then provide experienced coaching 

and a motivating and fun atmosphere for you to accomplish them.

Once you register for a strive camp, you will be contacted by a camp director who will talk with you about what your personal training goals are for this summer. Planning for your strive training experience will begin! Three weeks prior to the start date of your strive camp, you will be contacted again to have your goals for camp reviewed & updated. You will also receive other special instructions for how to prepare for camp at that time.

Your STRIVE experience will include:

[wpcol_divider] star

  • Training: A progressive series of training sessions on each event with professional coaches who have already reviewed your goals in pre-camp meetings and have come prepared to push you towards your goals. Training sessions will build on each other, and will focus on drills, technique, form, and strength that are necessary to accomplish the skills that are being taught.

  • Character Building: Throughout each strive camp, we will be focusing on a specific inner quality that every gymnast must understand and develop in order to be successful in achieving their goals. Better understanding of this quality will be built  through group review at the beginning of each session and inspiring reminders given by the strive coaches throughout training. The 2013 Strive quality is “Discipline”.



  • Motivation: Each strive camp will feature a special presentation by a gymnastics role model. Strive athletes will hear an inspiring story from a high level athlete of what their gymnastics journey was like, and how the quality of discipline was important to them. There will also be time for interaction with the camp role model, where athletes can ask questions and receive encouragement! Information on who the role model will be for each camp will be posted on our camp website as camps get closer!
