Yo-Yo Camp & Yo-YO Class at Spinning Top & Yo-Yo Museum


Fri. June 18, 2010  10-3  for ages 8 to 16


 Yo-Yo Camp on Friday, June 18, 2010  from 10 am to 3 pm will make your head spin with endless yo-yo tricks and tips.  Participants ages 8 through 16 may attend and each receive a high quality long spinning  yo-yo to use all day and to keep.  Beginners and intermediates will learn and practice more than 10 new and classic tricks including the classics such as rock-the-baby, walk-the-dog, confederate flag, sleeper, creeper, flip-flop, and many others.  Quick to learn is the “ice cream cone” string trick. 

  Coaching for the best power throw, yo-yo maintenance, string changing tips, contest participant information, and time to see a little collection of add yo-yos, all  part of the Yo-Yo Camp day.  A chance to try out a variety of other yo-yo types from novelty and  fixed axle to ball bearing improves player knowledge.  Optional informal contests like “who can walk the longest dog?” are part of the fun, too.  Videos of world experts will be shown.

Participants are invited to show and teach tricks they know, too.

The Yo-Yo Camp instructor has given classes for clown clubs, 4-H camp, scout troops, adult groups, TV personalities, and Yo-Yo Convention visitors plus performed yo-yo tricks for a Ripley’s Believe It or Not TV taping, yo-yoed a few tricks with Tommy Smothers of the famous comedy team the Smother’s Brothers, and given yo-yo demosntrations in Italy.

           Advance paid registration is required of $68 ($80 at the door) per person for yo-yo camp.(Remember... you get a new, high quality $19 ball bearing yo-yo to keep as part of the day and an extra string). Participants are to bring their own bag lunch.
