Registration and Insurance Forms
COLLEGE PARK, Md. -
The Maryland gymnastics coaching staff announced the dates for its 2013 summer camp Tuesday. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to last year's summer camp, Maryland has scheduled two sessions for the first time ever.
In 2012, Maryland added a second session after the first session was met with considerable enthusiasm and sold out quickly.
This summer, the first session will run from July 28 through Aug. 1. The second session will be held Aug. 4 through Aug. 8. Both sessions will be at the Maryland Gymnastics Training Facility in the School of Public Health and are open to gymnasts of all skill levels - beginner to level 10 and elite - for ages 7 to 18.
The camp application form including the health insurance form is located above. Please complete the application and health insurance forms in their entirety and return it along with the registration fee to JJ Ferreira:
