WELCOME TO HPTC 2017!

This marks the 19th anniversary of our little get-together, and over the years, we have evolved our camp into what is now one of the top gymnastics learning experiences for athletes of all ages and abilities, with one of the top camp coaching staffs in the world, (with no exaggeration!), and this year will be no exception!
You will find many of the details for the camp one this page, and of course, we are always available to answer any other questions you might have. Contact Us!

Please bring appropriate dress up costumes, props etc to help get into the team spirit! We will let you know which day is what theme at Registration/Check in.
