ABOUT WINTER CAMPS @ WHITE ROCK GYMNASTICS
White Rock Gymnastics & Diving Academy is a fully equipped gymnastics facility located at #114-15272 Croydon Drive. In our camps, each child will receive progressive gymnastics instruction through directive and exploratory learning on vault, bars, beam & floor. Skills are acquired in a safe and fun environment while developing strength, balance, and coordination. Gymnasts may also participate in arts, crafts, games & team building activities held at our facility.
Please note: due to new province-wide insurance regulations trampoline use will only be available for session gymnastics classes.
Campers will be placed into groups based on age and experience. This process will ensure that campers have the best environment to grow and develop while participating in our camp. If you have a child with health concerns, food allergies, developmental challenges or any other concerns, please speak with our staff directly so that we can support each individual camper.

What to Wear and Pack:
Comfortable athletic attire, leggings, shorts or sweatpants are all appropriate. We suggest snug fitting shirts for safety reasons as loose ones can flip up over the eyes. All athletes will be barefoot. Hair should be pulled back out of the eyes and no jewelry for safety reasons. Valuables should be left at home, including jewelry, electronic devices, and cell phones.
We are a NUT-AWARE facility. Please note that White Rock Gymnastics cannot guarantee facilities are Nut-Free, however, we do our best to educate visitors about being Nut-Aware at all times. All snacks will be checked by staff prior to eating. SNACKS WITH NUTS WILL BE HELD IN OUR OFFICE AND RETURNED AT THE END OF CAMP. If you are using an alternative “butter” please make sure it is either labelled or your child knows what it is to ensure there is no confusion. Alternative suggestions include: “wow butter”, sunflower butter, soynut butter, coconut butter etc.
Common Snacks to avoid:
Pesto (pine nut)
Almond/Peanut based granola bars
Baked goods with nut products (peanuts, almonds, macadamia nut, etc)
Please pack 1 – 2 snacks for your child and a water bottle. Staff will check student snacks prior to eating to ensure they are nut free.
Please pack 2 – 4 snacks, a full lunch, and a water bottle. We find students typically consume more at camp than they do during the day at school as they are a great deal more active. Any leftovers will be returned home. Staff will check student snacks and lunch prior to eating to ensure they are nut free.
All athletes MUST be signed in and out by a parent or guardian each day. Sign-in will be located to the left of the main window when you enter our lobby. Athletes should leave their belongings in a cubby and will then be escorted into the gym by a coach. Please plan to drop off and depart as it will be very busy and parking will be reserved for dropping off only. Please see the section below for Extended Hours/Late Pick-Up policies.
Parent/Guardian Contact Info:
Prior to the start of camp please log in to the parent portal from the link below and check that all contact info is up to date. If someone other than a parent or guardian listed on your child’s account will be picking up, please inform the staff at the time of drop off so they can record the information. We retain the right to ask for ID from anyone not listed on the account at pick up time.
Extended Hours/Late Pick-Up:
Extended hours are available for early drop-off or late pick-up for students enrolled in our half-day and full-day camps only. Students will be supervised by staff in the lobby - they are welcome to bring additional snacks and activities (no electronic devices please).
8:00 - 9:00 AM
3:30 - 4:30 PM
3:30 - 5:30 PM
$10/hour per student. Extended hour pricing will not be pro-rated.
Ex. If you are picking up your student at 4:00 PM you will still need to pay for the full hour.
Extended hours must be pre-booked. Registration will be open online until the Sunday prior to the camp week. After this cut-off parents may request their child be added but availability is not guaranteed. In the event you are late picking up without pre-booking extended hours, you will be charged a late fee of $10 per every 15 minutes or portion of 15–minute period, per student until the student(s) is/are picked up.
Absolutely NO refunds within 10 days of camp. To receive a full refund, you must request it in writing 10 days prior to your camp. You are allowed to switch to a different day if space is available. A refund will be issued in full if a medical note is provided to the office within 72 hours of the missed camp day.
