Frequently Asked Questions

Before enrolling in our program, we understand you may have some questions. Explore the sections below to find answers to your queries, and if you don't find what you're looking for, don't hesitate to reach out to us.


  • General Questions
  • Camps Questions
  • Classes Questions
    • Does my kid wear shoes in your gym?

      Yes, kids must have on gym clothes with clean gym shoes.

    • Do the kids run obstacles the whole time in camp?

      No, that wouldn't be fun for anyone ;( Our camps are a thoughtful blend of high and low "octane" activities with plenty of breaks.

    • Do you provide food?

      No, we do not provide food. You will send your kiddos with a nut-free lunch and 2 snacks for a full day, and just a snack for a half-day. Our camp is nut-free and allergy-conscious.

    • What are the camp hours?

      Full Day is 8 am-4 pm, Half Day AM is 8 am-12 pm and PM is 12 pm-4 pm. We start the morning activities around 8:45 am, and the afternoon by 12:45 pm.

    • Do you offer extended care?

      Yes, we do! Extended Care drop off and pick up hours are 7-8 am and 4-5:30 pm. Pricing is $25 a day or $100 for the week.

    • Can we sign up for a full or half day for the Leadership Summer Camp? 

      No, the 8 weeks of the Leadership Summer Camp are registered by the week only, with no minimum weeks required. This is due to the special type of structure that this camp follows. It's a blast for the whole week!

    • Will the kids go outside?

      Absolutely! We are firm believers in taking the kiddos outside for at least an hour or two each day, if the weather is good.

    • Can you administer medication to my child?

      Yes, with your guidance we can absolutely administer any medications to your child that they normally take.

    • Can we come to try it first? 

      Definitely! We offer a free trial class to anyone who would like to come check us out.

    • How can we join HGG Classes?

      We have weekly recurring and session pass ("punchcard") membership options. And, you are never held to a specific day, you may bring your kiddo to any day we have classes each week. Super easy and flexible 👍

    • Are all of you veterans? 

      Yes, all the owners & operators are military veterans, and some have a first responder background as well.

    • Do you offer discounts?

      Besides running seasonal promotions, we are proud to offer discounts for veterans/active military, first responders, teachers, and siblings (multiple kids joining).

    • How can kids advance through your program?

      By earning their next higher "Rank Patch". We have a rank structure in place that uses velcro on rank patches that are worn on the student's uniform (t-shirt).

    • Do you offer an "open gym" time?

      No, we only offer instructor-guided sessions. However, we do allow "free-time" before and after each class.
