Golden Triangle Gymnastics of Conrad are preparing for the Holiday break with many activities for your school aged children.

So far on the schedule is a two hour tea party for girls ages 5 to 7 on Dec. 28 and a four hour Super Duper Power Kids camp that is still in the works for January.

Girls must get registered in advance for the tea party as there is limited space available. Girls are asked to show up in gymnastic attire and can expect gymnastics, games, crafts and, of course, snacks with “tea”.

Although still in the works, the four hour camp will not only focus on gymnastics but also martial arts, wrestling and maybe even ballet.

Games are to be played and a great time is expected.

Becky Rammell, program director, would like to also remind everyone that the gym also can provide private parties with coaches provided. Birthdays, youth groups, daycares and more are welcome to book a session.

Rammell encourages groups with a cause to come in by offering incentives. After paying for the session, she will donate back half of your bill to the cause or organization you support, for example: Boy Scouts of America.

Rammell said she knows it can be hard to keep your kids busy during the long Christmas break and says, “We want them.”

Besides the clinics and special events, the gym offers drop-in sessions year round.

Tuesday afternoon at 1 p.m. is the slot for “Day Care visits” and 2 p.m. is a “Mom and Me” time. You do not have to have your child registered in classes to attend.

Friday night is open gym but your child must be enrolled in a class to attend.

The Christmas break also holds great opportunity for the competitive team from Golden Triangle Gymnastics to practice.

This year, six to seven girls are hoping to attend five different competitions around the area. The first competition is the Aloha Invitational in Kalispell beginning on Jan. 29. The second is in Helena beginning on Feb. 11 and the elective meet is in Couer D’ Alene, Idaho on Feb. 25-27. March 11-13 is the meet in Missoula and the State Gymnastics Championships will be March 25-27 in Missoula as well.

Boys are reminded that gymnastics are not just for girls and that more equipment, just for them, is on its way.
