About Camp Enchanted
Camp Enchanted is the most fun and exciting Camp in the UK. We have come together to reshape the Gymnastics, Dance, Cheerleading and Performing world as we know it and focus on absolute and complete enjoyment. Whether you are a competitive gymnast or cheerleader, or you attend a recreational dance class once a week, there is a space for you at Camp Enchanted. We are bringing down the expectations and strict training regimes for a week of fun drills, learning new and exciting skills and of course, making friends and memories that will last a lifetime.
A sleep away camp where children are given the opportunity to thrive, to be themselves, to learn new skills, to make memories, to put away the mobile devices, to grow independence, to gain new friends they will call family, and more importantly feel safe and have more fun than they could ever imagine.
Above all, we are a down-to-earth Camp dedicated to making sure everyone has the summer of their lives.
Our experienced cheer coaches have first hand knowledge on what it is like to be world level cheerleaders. Head Cheer Coach Maria has a wealth of experience, you can find out more on the staff page.
Our creative workshops will push your child to reach their potential and excel in their favourite aspects of cheerleading. They will also be given the opportunity to take extra time to work on certain areas they may struggle with such as jumps, tumbling or choreography.
We have stunt sessions daily where cheerleaders will work together to create new stunt sequences and pyramids whether they are a base or flyer.
Our cheerleading programme encompasses teamwork at its heart. We want our cheerleaders to look out for one another, care for one another and we have no doubt their friendships will last beyond their time at Camp Enchanted.
Camp Enchanted welcomes all gymnasts from recreational level to National WAG. This really is a place that gymnasts can spend hours in their favourite place, learning new drills that will push them all individually. Gymnasts will explore new choreography, work on new bar mounts, stretch and condition daily, ramp up their tumbles, fine tune their basics and so much more. Boys are eligible to attend camp at Ellesmere College from Summer 2024 however we do not have all of the MAG equipment for gymnastics. The male gymnasts are still able to do their floor work, condition, tumble, vault and use the high bar, but we do not have P Bars or Pommel this year.
Gymnastics is a large part of our camp and we have coaches fully qualified to national level so what ever level your child is we are sure they will be encouraged to learn and really maximise their time in the gym.
Through our dance strand, campers will explore a variety of different dance styles which will challenge them mentally and physically. They will focus on developing their physical, expressive, technical and mental skills through taught sequences, creative tasks and their final performance at the Grand Showcase.
The aim of our dance programme will be for dancers to develop their knowledge of the world of dance and recognise how the skills they develop on they programme will compliment and enhance their technical and performance skills in all fields of physical exercise whether it is to compliment their gymnastics, or to enhance their agility in team sports.
Dancers will be involved in the creation of the final piece for the Grand Showcase. They will be pushed out of their comfort zones to work with others, develop their teamwork and communication skills through choreographic tasks. All these skills are vital and transferrable to all areas of life whether it be schooling, higher education or employment
We offer a very extensive and extremely fun schedule. When campers are not taking part in their majors they can be found around campus either playing laser tag, swimming, in the health and fitness suite, making camp fires and toasting s'mores, participating in the talent shows, open air cinema, tag rugby, capture the flag or they might even want to go and grab themselves 5 minutes of downtime. Our programme is constantly evolving and we are always adding in new activities right up until the start date of camp.
Once you have booked onto camp, you'll receive a fully extensive timetable in the lead up to camp.
Our staff will care for and look after your children like they are our own. The team includes a number of parents ourselves, so we fully understand what it means to have your Childs happiness and wellbeing put first. We select only the best staff for the summer and we are positive your child will create a bond with their counsellors and coaches like no other.
