San Diego Gymnastics has two great locations to serve children ages 9 months to 18 years old!  Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and encouraging environment for kids to learn gymnastics and tumbling. Unlike most gymnastics locations, we do not operate in a big warehouse in an industrial part of town. Both of our locations are centered in retail areas with restaurants, shopping and ample parking. We are also near the majority of our neighborhood schools, so parents can easily drop off and pick up other children while their gymnast is training.

Offering over 30 years of experience delivering award-winning, age-appropriate fitness programs and birthday parties to ages 6 weeks to 10 years.

The Ultimate Indoor Trampoline Park.

We’re people like you who want to exercise, but also like to have fun. Lots of fun. So instead of stair climbers and weight machines, we decided to create a place where you can soar in open jump arenas, play trampoline dodge ball, do flips and somersaults. We also wanted a new alternative in San Diego for birthday parties and family gatherings, where quality food and private party rooms were guaranteed, and our kids could safely play while we socialized with other parents. With dodge ball, open jump arenas, slam dunk zone and much more. From kids’ parties to corporate retreats, church groups to family reunions, and of course vacationers who just want to enjoy themselves.

Looking for an educational and affordable birthday party venue for your child? Host your child’s birthday party at San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum in Escondido! We have several party options themed for children ages 1-10 around science, art, and world cultures. Suitable for parties of up to 40.

Included in the birthday party package:
-Free General admission for you and your guests (from party start time until Museum close)
-Exclusive party space (Indoor Classroom) for 2 hours
-Personal Party Assistant for the duration of the party period
-Hands-on, facilitated activity
-Special gift for birthday child
-1 reserved parking space in our parking lot

Prices range from $198-$470 depending on the number of guests.

    I work in the education department at Helen Woodward Animal Center, which is a non-profit in Rancho Santa Fe. We have birthday parties that include hands-on animal interactions and I’d love to be added to this birthday guide! Let me know if that is possible!
