HEALTH FORMS (REQUIRED BY THE STATE OF MARYLAND)
The state of Maryland regulates summer camp. In compliance with state law, all campers must complete health forms (online registration via the HEALTH FORMS button below).
If a camper does NOT attend school in Maryland, even if s/he is a Maryland resident, vaccination forms are also required and must be submitted before your child can attend camp. If we do not receive the forms until the morning of your camper's first day, please note that, by law, your child may NOT enter the gym until his or her forms are processed at the front desk.
If your child requires special medication needs, additional forms are necessary (see SPECIAL HEALTH CARE below). CAMPERS WILL NOT BE ADMITTED WITHOUT THE REQUIRED FORMS AS THIS VIOLATES MARYLAND STATE LAW.
ADDITIONAL health forms
The following forms are also required:
- If your child resides outside of Maryland, or is a Maryland resident but attends school outside of Maryland, please submit:
Your child's Health Immunization Record
- If your child will self-administer medication or requires emergency medication during camp, please submit:
- If your child has special health needs, please have your physician complete:
SNACKS & LUNCH
Healthy snacks of fruit cups or applesauce will be provided in the morning; campers receive Icee pops in the afternoon. All campers are welcome to bring their own snacks, but they must be free of nuts or trace nuts. Please note that in order to ensure the safety of our dangerously allergic campers, we must check lunches and snacks to make sure they are nut-free. (This safety measure is necessary because, almost daily, our campers unknowingly bring products with nuts to the gym.)
Campers may bring lunches from home or buy pizza and/or juice through the front desk. Orders MUST be placed upon arrival in the morning. Pizza is $2/slice and juice is $1. Cash is preferred.
Vending machines are available at The Agility Center, but we advise that parents arrange for children to bring food or purchase lunch with us. Campers will be permitted to purchase items during snack or lunch. We will not be responsible for any lost or stolen money, so please advise your campers to keep careful track of his or her money. Although there may be items in the vending machine containing nuts, our staff will supervise purchases to ensure no products with nuts are purchased or consumed during camp hours. Any food purchased or brought containing nuts or traces of nuts will be confiscated.
Please remember that all lunches and snacks brought from home MUST NOT INCLUDE NUTS OR TRACES OF NUTS, nor be manufactured on a shared line with tree nuts. If you pack a lunch with peanut butter alternatives such as sunflower seed butter, please label the item with its ingredients to prevent confusion with a nut product (which, for the safety of our campers with allergies, must be confiscated).
In the event that your child's lunch includes prohibited items, the prohibited items will be confiscated and discarded. If possible, we will send the prohibited items home with your child, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. If your child's main entree is prohibited, you will be billed for pizza lunch upon pickup that day.
Please note that foods such as Nutella, cashew butter, and almond butter include tree nuts and therefore are prohibited items.
By necessity, all food brought to our center must be checked for nuts or traces of nuts. We ask that parents understand and support this policy to ensure the safety of all our campers.
We want everyone to get the most bang for their buck, which is why we allow our students to make up their missed classes toward camp at any of our partner gyms (Dynamite Gymnastics Center, The Agility Center, Bolt Parkour & Freerunning Academy, or Dynamite Tumbling & Cheer in Gaithersburg) until July 6, 2018. Here's the breakdown for how to redeem your make-ups for camp.
PER DAY OF CAMP
Half-day (8:45am - 11:45pm or 1:00 - 4:00pm) = 2 make-ups
Half-day extended (8:30am - 1:00pm or 12:00 - 4:30pm) = 3 make-ups
Full-day (8:30am - 4:30pm) = 4 make-ups
NOTE: This policy only applies if you have missed classes and you will remain enrolled (in classes or on HOLD) at The Agility Center or one of its partner gyms (Dynamite or Bolt). Because makeups may only be applied to DAILY camp days, you may apply your makeups towards a day of camp registration through July 6th. The entire camp day must be covered in its entirety by makeups. For example, if you register for a full day of camp and have fewer than 4 makeups accumulated, you may not apply those makeups to your registration and pay the difference. Camp days using makeups must be arranged at least 48 hours ahead of the camp day and is contingent on availability.
We offer two awesome camp discounts when combined result in great savings! All it takes is a little planning.
Ended March 31. Our yearly, early bird discount is for parents who register for summer camp by March 31st. Get $30 - $50 off per week if you can get your plans finalized early. Need to change later? No problem! Please see the FAQ, below, for more details on the policy for changes to your registration.
If you miss the early-bird deadline, you can still get the same discount by attending one of our Camp Expo events in the spring! We offer a discount of the same value to attendees who register for camp that day.
Ongoing all summer. Register for three or more weeks per camper and get $40 - $60 off (depending on your camp choices) each week! All weeks must be registered for at the same time to receive the discount on all of the weeks. If registered separately, the discount will only be applied to the third week (and additional weeks).
Combine your discounts!
Want to save upwards of $100 per week of camp? Combine Dynamite's early-bird discount and multi-week discount! Just be aware of our rules, which include, but are not limited to switch fees, no refunds, and registering for at least three weeks at one time.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAMP AT THE AGILITY CENTER, THE GYMNASTICS CENTER, and BOLT PARKOUR?
The Agility Center (AC) offers mini-agility, and agility/ninja warrior camps . Agility is a combination of tumbling, trampoline and obstacle courses using blocks, bars, swings, and ropes, while Parkour focuses primarily on jumping, flipping, and swinging between obstacles. Dynamite Gymnastics Center offers preschool gymnastics, women’s artistic gymnastics, and tumbling & trampoline (TNT) camps.
DO YOU OFFER SNACK AND LUNCH FOR CAMPERS?
All gymnasts registered in half-day extended or full-day must bring or buy lunch. However, all campers are given a healthy morning and afternoon snack. Campers who wish to purchase lunch from us must place their order for pizza and juice in advance either when registering, or upon arrival in the morning.
WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
Cancellations made via EMAIL (email@example.com) must be made at least 48 hours (weekdays) in advance to receive a credit. No cash or refunds to credit cards. NO refunds will be issued for cancellations made within 48 hours from the start of camp. Cancellations via phone will not be accepted (as we cannot verify the time of the cancellation). Please note that we hire staff in advance based on registrations and must have ample time to change their schedules.
CAN I CHANGE MY REQUESTED CAMP DAY OR WEEK?
Yes, IF we have availability. Additionally, switching to different camp days or weeks before June 1st will incur no penalty; however, beginning June 1st, any transfers to other camp days or weeks will incur a change fee of $25 per week or $5/$10 per day (HD or HDX/FD). Changes may be made within 48 hours and contingent on staff availability. Please EMAIL the gym (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to switch days, weeks or times. Changing times (ex. from HDAM to HDPM) will not incur a change fee, but is contingent on staff availability.
CAN MY YOUNGER DAUGHTER BE WITH HER OLDER FRIEND?
Campers may join groups of younger campers, but younger campers may NOT join older groups.
WHAT ARE THE CAMPER-TO-COUNSELOR RATIOS AT CAMP?
Children ages 5 and younger are in groups of 8, while campers 6 and older are in groups of 10.
HOW OLD ARE YOUR COUNSELORS?
ALL of our lead instructors are 18 or older. Some assistant counselors are in high school, but all are experienced (most are high-level current or former gymnasts) and trained in class management, basic skill progressions, and hand-spotting. When staffing permits, older children may be grouped by age and skill level.
