Camp Life

Schedule

At Flip Fest, we try to keep the campers busy with a good mix of productive gymnastics training and activities outside the gym. This allows the campers to meet other campers from around the country and enjoy time learning from and interacting with them. Campers will have time in between training sessions for lake activities, ropes course and other camp activities.

7:45 a.m. Breakfast
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Morning training

Recreation

Flip Fest maintains the beauty of the natural surroundings while providing the best amenities for campers and staff. Campers will enjoy the property while hiking on trails cut through the woods along Lake Frances. Project Adventure, experts in safe and fun ropes course design, has constructed our challenge course in a stand of pine trees bordering the lake. The course offers campers a variety of challenges ending in a thrilling ride on the giant swing with amazing bird’s-eye views of the camp and the lake.

All our great lake activities begin on the sandy beach of Lake Frances. Campers may lie on the beach, swim, canoe or ride a tube behind one of the Flip Fest jet skis. Other camp activities include fishing, sand volleyball, laser tag, the famous "Monday night camp dance" with a live DJ, skit night, dodge ball, spud, tie dye, karaoke, blob, basketball court, s'mores, the Flip Fest ultimate obstacle course, arts and crafts and camper and staff games with the greatest camp leader, Randy Parrish.

Safety

Each camper’s safety and well-being is of utmost importance to the Flip Fest staff and ownership. We realize no camper can fully enjoy their camp experience if they are not healthy and safe. Therefore, we have taken extra precautions to ensure each camper’s safety at Flip Fest.

  • Appropriate and qualified staff members supervise all activities and training sessions at all times.
  • Project Adventure has built and will maintain the ropes course and will provide safety guidelines and training for each staff member who supervises the ropes course.
  • Certified lifeguards will oversee all swimming and tubing activities.
  • We will have a certified athletic trainer available to campers during gymnastics training sessions.
  • We will have a camp manager available during the entire week to handle individual medication needs as well as any medical issues which may arise.
  • We also have four permanent members of the Flip Fest staff who are each USA Gymnastics Safety Certified and CPR certified to further ensure each camper’s safety.
