Westborough – This summer, the Massachusetts Gymnastics Center (MGC) in Westborough held a series of summer camps for boys and girls ages 5 and up. During each weekly session, a group of young gymnasts participated in a variety of activities designed to help them learn skills in a safe and fun way on the different apparatus from the highly-trained, experienced staff. Each week also had a particular theme such as “the Olympics” or “Rock Star”.
Girls worked on their skills on the floor, balance beam, uneven bars, trampoline track, vault and foam pit while boys enjoyed those apparatuses as well as the high bar.
The first MGC facility was opened in 1974 in Waltham; there are now facilities in Hingham, Leominster, Sudbury, and Pembroke, as well as Westborough.
MGC has produced many state, regional, and national champions, and members who have made the United States men’s and women’s national teams as well as scholarship athletes.
The Westborough gym is located at 74 Otis St. For more information visit www.massgymnastics.com or call 508-870-0253.
