Well done to everyone who took part in our first week of Summer Camp. Fun was had by all with lots of dancing, singing, playing, making and of course gymnastics. The pit was unfortunately out of use due to flooding at the start of the week but this was more than made up for in our BIG foam build and the subsequent burying of some of our coaches in the foam pit at the end of the week.
Thank you to all of the coaches who made this an exciting week for those who took part.
