Gym5 Sensory Summer Camps

Using soft gymnastics, interactive technologies and training experience, we guide your child’s exercise and coordinate movements to maximize brain body connections. The activities can be practiced indoors as well as outdoors and they all support and stimulate not only children's physical and social growth but also their academic development and learning.

 Our sensory motor training summer camps designed for fun bring out more than a basic gross and fine motor training. They bring out the best social and emotional development with a communication focus.
