The Best Week of the Year
PorterCamp welcomes athletes of all gymnastic levels aged 7-18. We offer the perfect combination of formal gymnastics training along side a general sports program for those campers who are former gymnasts/siblings of our gymnastics campers - combined with traditional boys and girls summer camp activities. Hosted in a non-traditional space, our campers enjoy 4 hours of coaching for gymnasts under the big top and sports across the multiple fields. Our elite coaching staff and spirited counselors have over 400 years of combined PorterCamp experience, ensuring our campers improve their skills in a safe, low-stress environment.
When not training, our campers test their fearlessness on our climbing wall, get their hearts racing on our zip line, and show off their competitive side with tramp ball and field sports. After spending some time on land and in the air our campers cool off with a dip in the lake and take a turn waterskiing or wake boarding.
PorterCamp is like no other. For one enchanted week in August, we rejuvenate our training while making life-long friends in a truly beautiful place. We hope that you will join us to experience the magic of PorterCamp for yourself.
