Summer Camps

Home/Upcoming Events/Summer Camps

Dublin Dance Centre & Gymnastics’ summer camps enrich your child with an unforgettable and exciting experience! In addition to the traditional benefits of camp, independence, deep friendships, and confidence, DDC&G students experience creative exploration, artistic expression and pure fun! All camps include an age appropriate curriculum using exciting themes as a tool for students’ growth through dance & gymnastics technique, show production and performing!

Summer camps are week-long day-camps. Camps and themes are geared toward specific age groups and are open to any level dancer/gymnast!

What will my child do?

Each morning, all campers gather (young and older) for the morning wake-up and welcome session. This includes traditional camp games and favorites like the “freeze dance”. After the welcome session, campers divide by age and continue with their director. The curriculum includes dance and gymnastics classes, outdoor activities, arts and crafts, and music study. Each week will conclude with a Friday performance and party for the campers and their loved ones!
