Beat the heat at Camp Boing this summer

Gymnastics and more for ages 3-12


Kids can go "boing" again this summer, courtesy of Wood River Gymnastics Academy and the Wood River Academy of Early Learning.

Gymnastics director Andrea Minnick said it's the most fun you can have without getting sunburned.

Minnick was referring to Camp Boing, a summer activity for youngsters 3-12.

There are two summer programs: Junior Boing for children 3-6 and regular Boing for kids 6-12. The programs run from June 13 through Aug. 26. Daily times are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with extended pre- and post-camp care available. Also, childcare is offered for children 18 months-3 years.

Minnick said, "Camp Boing is Blaine County's premier adventure into the joy of sport, the fun of creative expression, the wonder of the outdoors and the journey through foreign language for 18 months and up.


"In addition to daily gymnastics classes, WRGA and Wood River Academy of Early Learning are teaming up with area specialists and businesses to offer campers with a range of experiences—everything from music to dance to arts to Spanish to crafts to French to yoga to weekly field trips.

"Our mission is to enable campers to discover hidden talents and strengths, to grow confidence and self-worth, to grow hearts that embrace positive values, to grow healthy bodies and minds, and to develop lasting relationships with peers and adults alike."

Staff members like Minnick hold teaching certificates, first aid certification, CPR certification, wilderness training and USAG safety certification.

The camp is located at 81 Martin Lane in Bellevue. For details, contact Minnick at 309-3105, 928-6199 or The website is
