Please note the Early Bird Discounts’ expiration date of March 31, 2019.
We want everyone to get the most bang for their buck, which is why we allow our students to redeem their missed classes (make-ups) from our gym or any of our partner gyms (Dynamite Gymnastics Center, The Agility Center, or Bolt Parkour & Freerunning Academy) for full or half days of Dynamite2 summer camp, through August 30, 2019. (The last day to redeem make-ups for camp at any of our partner gyms is August 9, 2019).
Here's the breakdown of how to redeem your make-ups for camp:
PER DAY OF CAMP ONLY (NOT APPLICABLE TO WEEKLY CAMP)
Half-day (8:45am - 11:45pm or 1:00 - 4:00pm) = 2 make-ups
Half-day extended (8:30am - 1:00pm or 12:00 - 4:30pm) = 3 make-ups
Full-day (8:30am - 4:30pm) = 4 make-ups
Certain conditions apply:
You may redeem missed classes (make-ups) for summer camp by the day only (Daily Camp), from June 10 through August 30, 2019. Weekly Camp (camp by the week) is not eligible.
Your child must be currently enrolled (registered in a class at Dynamite2 or one of our partner gyms), or currently on Hold at any Dynamite gym (the cost for being on hold is $25/month) in order to trade in make-ups for camp days.
Registering for daily full or half day camp using make-ups must be done by e-mailing us at email@example.com or by calling us at 301.977.7007, and must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance to ensure availability for your child.
Families cannot receive a monetary value for make-ups. For example, if you register for a full day of camp and have fewer than 4 makeups accumulated, you may not apply those make-ups to your registration and pay the difference. However, you are permitted to use your make-ups and receive a full day of camp in this way: you may trade in 2 make-ups for a morning half day camp (8:45am - 11:45 pm) and then register at full price for an afternoon half day extended camp (12 - 4:30 pm).
Camp days using makeups must be arranged at least 48 hours ahead of the camp day and is contingent on availability.
To register for a daily camp by redeeming makeups, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 301.977.7007.
DOES DYNAMITE OFFER SNACK AND LUNCH FOR CAMPERS?
All campers registered in half-day extended or full-day must bring or buy lunch. However, all campers are given a healthy morning and afternoon snack. Campers who wish to purchase lunch from Dynamite must place their order for pizza and juice upon arrival in the morning. If a camper’s lunch is found to contain items that are not nut-free, Dynamite will provide pizza lunch and juice to the camper and bill the parents’ account for the cost.
WHAT IS DYNAMITE'S REFUND POLICY?
Cancellations made via EMAIL (email@example.com) must be made at least 48 hours (weekdays) in advance to receive a credit. No cash or refunds to credit cards. NO refunds will be issued for cancellations made within 48 hours from the start of camp. Cancellations via phone will not be accepted (as we cannot verify the time of the cancellation). Please note that we hire staff in advance based on registrations and must have ample time to change their schedules.
CAN I CHANGE MY REQUESTED CAMP DAY OR WEEK?
Yes, IF we have availability. Additionally, switching to different camp days or weeks before June 1st will incur no penalty; however, beginning June 1st, any transfers to other camp days or weeks will incur a change fee of $25 per week or $5/$10 per day (HD or HDX/FD). Changes may be made within 48 hours and contingent on staff availability. Please EMAIL the gym (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you plan to switch days, weeks or times. Changing times (ex. from HDAM to HDPM) will not incur a change fee, but is contingent on staff availability.
CAN MY YOUNGER CHILD BE WITH HIS/HER OLDER FRIEND?
Campers may join groups of younger campers, but younger campers may NOT join older groups.
WHAT ARE THE CAMPER-TO-COUNSELOR RATIOS AT CAMP?
Children ages 5 and younger are in groups of 8, while campers 6 and older are in groups of 10.
HOW OLD ARE YOUR COUNSELORS?
ALL of Dynamite's lead instructors are 18 or older. Some assistant counselors are in high school, but all are experienced (most are high-level current or former gymnasts) and trained in class management, basic skill progressions, and hand-spotting. When staffing permits, older children may be grouped by age and skill level.
IS THERE RECIPROCITY BETWEEN DYNAMITE2 AND DYNAMITE GYMS IN NORTH BETHESDA?
Yes. One example of our reciprocity: you may transfer your camper to another Dynamite gym, IF we have availability at that other gym. In addition, makeups incurred at Dynamite Gymnastics Center, The Agility Center, or Bolt Parkour, may be transferred to Dynamite2 and redeemed for daily camp.
CAN I REDEEM MISSED CLASSES (MAKE-UPS) FOR CAMP DAYS?
Until July 5, parents of currently enrolled students (either in a class or on hold for $25/month) at any Dynamite gym (Dynamite Gymnastics Center, The Agility Center, Bolt Parkour or Dynamite2) may redeem missed classes incurred at any Dynamite gym, for Daily Camp only (camp by the day) at any Dynamite gym, depending on availability. The exchange rate is, 4 makeups = 1 full day of Daily Camp; 3 makeups = 1 Half Day Extended of Daily Camp; and, 2 makeups = 1 Half Day of Daily Camp. Starting July 8, only Dynamite 2 will accept makeup trade-ins for daily camp days, per the exchange rate listed above. Please review the Makeup Trade-Ins policy, detailed under Discounts & Savings, above.
