EXTREME SPORT JUMPING
Jump into the action and bounce your way to fun at one of Cayuga’s newest & most popular activities… it's called EXTREME SPORT JUMPING. Now recognized as an Olympic sanctioned event, Extreme Sport Jumping is one of the wildest activities to hit the camp scene. It’s been growing in popularity all over the world and now it's even more popular here at Camp Cayuga!
Our “Junior Division” campers (entering 4th grade and lower) are scheduled Extreme Sport Jumping twice a week. Additional periods are available upon parental request. For our older Divisions (entering 5th grade and higher), Extreme Sport Jumping is offered daily as a free-choice elective. There are no age restrictions.
Can you imagine what it’s like jumping 24 feet in the air? And can you imagine doing mid-air flips and rolls? And with no fear of falling or bouncing off?! That’s right… You can’t fall off the trampoline because you’re wearing a harness that’s hooked-up to a bungee cord. (The harness is like the one you wear on our Flying Trapeze).
OUR BIG "TRAMPOLINE THING"
Extreme Sport Jumping takes place on our “Trampoline Thing” which is a large rig that combines a trampoline system with a bungee cord system. The rig features 4 separate trampolines, so 4 campers can participate at one time! It also features a patented Bungee Cord System that includes a hydraulic lift that automatically readjusts the height settings on the rig as you jump higher and higher. With this safety feature, you can’t over-stretch the bungee cord while jumping. There’s no other system like it. The bungee cord can propel you up to 24 feet in the air!
Our instructors are trained, evaluated, and qualified by one of Cayuga’s Program Director. This individual has been trained by the manufacturer’s representative in operational and safety procedures.
The "Trampoline Thing" was originally developed for athletic training purposes by Olympic Trainers. It’s great exercise, and that’s one reason why our campers really enjoy this activity! But perhaps the biggest reason why Extreme Sport Jumping is so popular at Cayuga is because... IT’S FUN!
