What to Pack Each Day
While in the gym, participants should wear comfortable clothing (shorts and a t-shirt or body suit). Long hair must be tied back. All jewellery must be removed except for small stud earrings. Gymnastics is done in bare feet. Prepare your campers for outdoor play by packing proper running shoes, sunscreen, water bottle, hat, and backpack for belongings. We may be eating at different locations so please ensure that your child’s belongings all fit into one bag that can be carried easily.

SSMGC participates in supervised swimming activities in the John Rhodes Pool. In accordance with their safety ratios, only children 7 years of age or older are allowed to swim. Swim tests must be performed each time. Children who do not pass the swim test are to stay within arm’s reach of their coach. Don’t forget your swim suit and towel!
Off Site Field Trips
Each week campers leave the building to attend off site field trips. When destinations are less than one kilometer away, participates will walk with adult supervision to their activity. On other occasions, participants will take transit. There are no additional fees for these field trips.
At SSMGC all our staff and volunteers have been chosen for their commitment to children, qualifications and experience. All coaches are minimum Level One Certified with Gymnastics Ontario. With a camper/staff ratio of 10:1, safety is our number one priority! All staff will have attended a pre-camp training session.
Parents are not allowed in the gym unless they are part of an approved program or an SSMGC approved aide. However, we welcome parents to stay and watch their children learn and play from the viewing area.
SPACE IS LIMITED!
