ADDITIONAL CAMP INFORMATION
Coach to Camper Ratio: We never have more than 8 gymnasts to a coach, but in most situations there is less.
Housing: On campus suite type housing. The University is currently renovating several of the dorms so we will not have our dorm assignment until closer to the camp dates. We will have a suite type dorm with each camper having her own bedroom, the 4 bedroom suites have 2 bathrooms so two people will share a bathroom. Each suite has a common area with a full size refrigerator and microwave. All campers will be allowed to choose their own roommates. Anyone without a roommate choice will be paired with campers of approximately the same age. Campers will have supervision from camp/dorm staff at all times.
Gymnast Grouping: All gymnasts will be grouped according to their competitive level and ability to allow them to get the most out of each workout. Please make sure camper’s level is listed correctly at registration and updated as needed before you arrive for camp. It is difficult to rearrange groups and rotations once camp begins.
Door Decorating Contest: Overnight campers will have a door decorating contest. They can work together with their roommates and decorate the door to the suite or they can decorate their own door to their individual bedroom. Decorations can be brought from home and we will have decorating supplies at the dorm. Prizes will be award for the best door from home and the best door made at camp.
Camp Store: The camp store will be open during check in and check out only, so there is no need to bring extra money.
Deposit & Refund Policy: The $100 deposit for both overnight and day campers is non-refundable. Cancellations received in writing or email prior to the first day of camp will receive a refund of camp fees paid less the $100 deposit.
Offline Registration: Online registration is preferred. If you desire to register offline by mail with a personal check, please contact our office for a copy of the mail in forms.
Transportation: Alabama Gymnastics Camp will provide transportation from the dorm to the gym by school bus driven by a licensed Tuscaloosa County school bus driver.
Late Fees: Final Balances for each session are due 30 days prior to the first day of camp. Session I – Due by May 12; Session II is due by June 10; Session III is due by June 24. Payments received after these dates must include an additional $50.00 late fee.
Meals / Menus: Overnight Campers will have breakfast and dinner meals at a UA Campus Dining Hall which is cafeteria style dining. There are varied choices each day with all food allergies reported to the Dining Hall Staff. Overnight and Day Campers will have lunch at the “NEW” Athletic Dining Hall. There will be a main menu each day that is listed below. All food allergies will be reported to the Dining Hall Staff for variations as needed. If a camper has food allergies we will try to accommodate them but you are welcome to send meals or snacks items. Special accommodations can only be made for FOOD ALLERGIES, please list food allergies on your registration! We will contact all campers who list a food allergy with further information on substitutions that will be made available.
