School may be out, but we are just getting warmed up! Taking place on major school breaks such as March Break and Summer Break; Cartwheels offers full-day or half-day camp options. Your child's day includes 1.5 to 2 hrs of gym time per half-day in addition to other activities such as stories, crafts and games.
Although some of our camps run a full week, you can choose individual days that work best for your schedule.
Parents are asked to send a nut-free lunch including snacks and a water bottle. Where a camp day falls on a Friday, pizza will be provided at an additional cost.
Spring Break 2021
This has been a big, decision for us. With the “unknown” constantly looming over us, the fact we’re still required to work with the extremely difficult/limiting Summer 2020, day camp/childcare protocols, and that the dates for Spring Break could change once again.
We’ve decided to offer multiple 2-hour drop offs that week to allow for more children to join in the fun. Our mini-camps will be following the cohort protocols mandated by the government, and all our current drop-off, masking, screening protocols.
These dates are subject to change by the provincial government.
Monday-Friday camp, currently April 12-16, 2021.
Cost is $150+hst, plus Gymnastics Ontario membership if not already registered for the 2020-2021 season. These mini-camps will be available to those currently registered/eligible for JK (birthdate on our before December 31,2020) and older.
Until the dates are confirmed by the government and HDSB, we will only be collecting names of those seriously interested to build cohorts. Non-members will send be asked to send Program Registration Form, plus Facility Declaration and Assumption of Risk waivers. No payments will be processed until camp dates are confirmed. Pre-registration for these cohorts is open now. A minimum number will be needed for each time slot to be offered.

Due to the ongoing pandemic and changes to our programming, Cartwheels will not be offering our traditional Drop In Play this season on Friday mornings. However, following Gymnastics Ontario protocols and brainstorming ideas on how to offer something for our community, we invite you to pre-book a Playtime in our training space on Friday’s. These reinvented Playtimes are open to our members and non-members in 75-minute bookings, where we will have a maximum of ten children ages 0-4, participating with a parent/guardian. You will have full access to our floor circuit, bars, balance beams, and inground trampolines. All children must be supervised by a parent/adult over 18, in the training space. We will not be allowing non-participating siblings/children in the viewing area. Babies in arms under six months do not count as a participant, if attending with an older sibling, and may be worn in a carrier or kept in their carseat. All equipment, high touch-points, and bathrooms will be sanitized between bookings. Our snack tables will not be available and we ask that you do not bring any food into our facility during Playtime.
NOTE: These bookings are available Friday’s in conjunction with our Term dates and the HDSB 2020-21 calendar (IE. Not offered during the break between our terms, or on the scheduled PA Days).
Cost is $10/child. Bookings open each Monday for that week’s Playtime time slots. Each participant is required to have a Program Registration Form, Facility Declaration and Assumption of Risk document on file with Cartwheels Gym Centre. Non-members may participate up to three visits, before being required to register for the Gymnastics Ontario membership.
