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
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

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.
