    Summer camps enliven UMSL
     Jeff Kuchno '

         There ace many who would concur with
     the popular belief that the social life of
     UMSL is somewhat dull . Well, if life
     around the UMSL campus is slow during
     the normal school year, it comes close to a
     standstill during the summer months.
         This is not true, however, around the
      Mark Twain Building and adjacent athletic'
     fields . Activity at UMSL's sports facilities
      has been anything but slow, and for good
         This summer, UMSL has established -
      itself as a major athletic development
      center for youths in the St. Louis area by
      offering six camps and clinics. These
      camps consist of instruction in gymnastics,
     basketball . and soccer for girls, and
     baseball, basketball and soccer for boys.
         Among the most popular of these
     camps-and one which thrives on the
     advantages of the Mark Twain Building-is
    ,the UMSL Gymnastics Camp , which was
     held at UMSL for two weeks, June 9-13
     and 16-20.
         The highly-regarded camp, which is
     coordinated by Dennis Fallon, associate
     professor of physical ,education, has been
     held at UMSL for the past three years . It                                                              Photos by
     had been held previously at Washington
     University , but because of high costs, area
     gymnastic coaches, in conjunction with the
     YMCA, -made the move to UMSL.                                                                          Wiley Price
         The camp features special physical
     fitness testing stations, 19 total teaching
     stations and instruction in the four areas of
     women's gymnastics (beam, vault, bars
     and floor), by several outstanding coaches.
         One of those outstanding coaches is Tom
     Burgdorf, director of the UMSL camp and
     head coach of the Florissant Gym Club.
     Burgdorf, a former student at UMSL,
     believes that the UMSL Gymnastics Camp'
     is among the best he's ever been
     associated with.
         "A lot of the other clinics in the                                                                 FUTURE OLYMPIANS?: Many area

     facilities are perfect here at UMSL,                                                                   from top left are Tammy Javier,
     especially with the air conditioning. "                                                                Donna Pinter, Amy Gardner, Clara
        Burgdorf pointed out that the air                                                                   McCarthy and Carol Klppenberger.
     conditioning bodes well for pleasant exer-
     cising conditions and that other factors
     make the camp ideal for a young gymnast.
         "The ratio of student to coach is seven
    to one,' aid Burgdorf. "Our philosophy is
    to take the kids beyond what they normally
    can do. This camp provides them with the
    opportunity to do that.
        "The best thing about this camp,
    though, is meeting the kids. These kids get
    to meet other kids and coaches they've
    been competing against and they see it in
     a different light. They don't see each other
    as competitors. Instead, they are friends."
        About 200 kids participated in the camp
     during the two-week duration. It is esti-
     mated that there were 110 participants the
     first week and 140 the second. Many of
     them attended the camp both weeks.
         According to Burgdorf, the cainp particu-
     pants were divided into ' five groups
    according to ability. He said that some of       "It's a good camp," she said. "It's a lot   "already concluded. The third session is for   , camps. The boys camp will be offered July
