Gymnastics and more at Camp Boing

Kids get limber


Bounce into summer with gymnastics, dance and lots more at "Camp Boing," home of Wood River Gymnastics Academy and the Wood River Academy of Early Learning.

Wood River Gymnastics director Andrea Minnick and her staff are offering two summer programs: Junior Boing for children ages 3-6 and regular Boing for kids 6-12.

The programs run through the summer on weekdays from 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 and the wonder of outdoors."

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.

There are 10 weekly sessions featuring different themes, from "Pirate Invasion" to "Mad Science," "Blast from the Past," and "Under the Big Top."

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