Covid-19 Response

Safety is #1

Whether you know Gymja from our classes, camps, birthday parties, or group events you know our key pillars are safety and respect.  Safety has never been as important as it is in these trying times, but we’re up to the challenge!  With the start of Massachusetts phase 2 openings behind us we are taking a caution approach to ensure not only the health and safety of our participants, but also to make sure we can give you the program you’ve come to expect.  This is why we’re taking a phased approach to reintroduce camp and classes followed by parties and group events when safe:

  • June 29: Camp opens!
  • July 6: Safety workshops begin (schedule coming soon)
  • July 13: Classes begin (schedule coming soon)
  • July 18: Birthday parties begin (assuming phase 3 allows)

Below are the details on how we’re modifying classes and camp in Danvers and Woburn
