Did you know that every summer our gymnasium is transformed into a gymnastics camp? Campers, ages 6-14, participate in Olympic events, tumble trak, mini trampoline, rope climb and much more! Head coaches are USA Gymnastics Safety Certified and follow the USA Gymnastics Program and the Rye Y's own progressive program.  A fun-filled day at camp includes team building, skill-of-the-day, games and group activities.  Half and full-day options are available. Full day campers swim daily plus enjoy specials such as Zumba, circus yoga, sports and arts and crafts! For more information contact: melissalewis@ryeymca.org
