Get ready for Pilates Summer Camp 2016! Better than ever!
About 7 years ago we had a client who was an elementary school teacher. She was dedicated to her Saturday morning Pilates Mat Class but then all of a sudden she started showing up to weekday classes. When we mentioned how awesome it was to see her so often she said “I gave myself summer camp…you know, like when you’re a kid and you get to do something fun everyday? So I looked at your class schedule and I choose one class each day and I’m doing it!” The best Pilates Studio’s ideas are typically born during a mat class or during the 10 minutes instructors have between sessions. We call these our “impromptu business meetings”. (more about that in a future blog post). Who wouldn’t take an idea like SUMMER CAMP and go with it? Since Rebecca’s brilliant plan that summer we’ve brought Pilates Summer Camp back almost every year. A lot of the summer camp classes can be found on our regular weekly schedule but the campers get an even bigger experience! Committing to 1 class a day can be a huge challenge but the rewards are great. Community is huge at The Pilates Studio (again, a future blog post).
Camp week means more camaraderie. By the end of the week you’ll have new, great friends. You’ll also get to try out all different classes The Pilates Studio offers. Each camp session includes the newest addition to our class schedule: THE OOV! Camp week will also allow mat clients to try out apparatus classes and apparatus clients to try out mat classes. This year you’ll get to take classes with a variety of the instructors on our team. (See more details below). Most of all you are going to feel great: stronger, taller and accomplished after doing Pilates Summer Camp.
We have 2 sessions to choose from in July. The morning session will run 8-9am and afternoon session 12-1pm. Each session costs $85 and includes all 5 classes. If you have a current mat or apparatus class card we’ll just save those and you can use them after camp is over. Because of scheduling, space and special pricing there are no switch-a-roos or makeups so make sure to check you schedule to be sure you can commit.

sign up for camp week and get an “Intro to Apparatus Class” free.
These special orientation classes will introduce you to some of the Pilates apparatus which can seem a little overwhelming at first. But trust us, you’ll soon discover how friendly (yet still challenging) the apparatus can be.
We have a variety of “Intro to Apparatus Classes” scheduled the weeks before Summer Camp. Check out our schedule and sign up for one as “unpaid”. We’ll waive the fee after you sign up and pay for Camp week.
