Beginners Each week Woodward is home to many beginner gymnasts.

Competitive gymnasts are challenged within the limits of their individual ability. Emphasis is placed on skill development.

Woodward developed a Youth Camp to assist younger campers aged 7 to 9 in adjusting to camp life. Youth campers have the same schedule, workout opportunities, and use of facilities as our general camp. They do, however, live apart from older campers with a “minimom” (girls) or a “mini-dad” (boys) and have an earlier bedtime (9:30 pm). All campers age 9 years and under are required to live in Youth Camp, however older friends may request to stay with them.

Thanks to the generous support of the Target organization, we sponsor Target awards for our “Campers of the Week� in our morning and afternoon classes for Cheer, Tumbling, and Gymnastics. Winners receive the Target medals and a pizza party for their cabins.

THIS PAST SUMMER we selected the most improved and enthusiastic campers from all our groups and invited them to return at a special rate during TAP week. Campers were selected from the Cheer, Tumbling, and Gymnastics programs. Over 200 campers and staff took us up on the offer and came back for an awesome week of camp! Look for us to continue the TAP program for many years to come. Maybe this will be your year!

THE WOODWARD SCHOLARSHIP FUND has

been created to help individuals who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend Woodward Camp. The Woodward Scholarship Fund is made possible by contributions from individuals, alumni, sponsors, and staff who want to give something back to their sports. Applications are available on our website at www.campwoodward.com www.campwoodward.com

This application may be photocopied

By the very nature of the activities, Cheer, Tumbling, Gymnastics, Trampoline, Inline Skating, Skateboarding, BMX Freestyle, Snowboarding, Wakeskating, and Wakeboarding all carry with it the risk of physical injury. No matter how careful the participants and instructors are, no matter how many spotters are used, no matter what height is used, no matter what safety equipment is worn or used, no matter what surface is being ridden or what landing surface exists, risk cannot be eliminated. Risk can be reduced but never eliminated. The risk of injury includes minor injuries such as bruises and more serious injuries such as broken bones, dislocations, and muscle pulls. The risk also includes catastrophic injuries such as permanent paralysis or even death from landings or falls on the back, neck, or head.

WARNING!
