At the beginning of August our 5 senior gymnasts Ali, Beth, Julie, Ciara and Elaine along with coaches Andrea, Evelyn and Rachel, travelled to the International Gymnastics Camp in Pennsylvania.

Through the course of the week, the gymnasts had the privilege of being coached by Svetlana Boguinskaia (former Olympic Champion), Jana Bieger (World Cup winner & USA national team), Andrea Bieger (former Olympian) and Abie Grossfeld (former Olympian & Olympic team coach). They also got to meet Paul Hamm (2004 Olympic Champion) who is currently training to try make the 2012 USA team.

Apart from the amazing gymnastics, the camp life experience, recreational activities and entertainment provided by the staff at IGC throughout the week was fantastic.

This was a very exciting trip for all involved and an experience that we won’t forget for a long time!!
