Summer is in full swing at the Arrillaga Gymnastics Center
with our summer camps Menlo Palooza and Menlo Madness taking advantage of all that is offered. There are approximately 20 to 35 campers who visit gymnastics once a week for an hour with their camp counselors. The gymnastics staff break the children up into groups and work with the children on all the gymnastics apparatus including bars, floor and the balance beam. Participants learn at least one skill a week with many learning how to do a forward roll for the first time!
July 10-15 is beach week at gymnastics center. Children and families entered the facility that was filled with seaweed, sea shells as well as various sea animal decorations. All gymnastics classes
participated in the beach themed activities that the staff had prepared. They played beach volleyball in the foam pit, did a little fishing on the gymnastics floor and walked over sea creatures on the balance beam. The week also featured an appearance by Shelly the gigantic inflatable sea turtle that all the children love to jump on.
