The Beam Queen Bootcamp is a two-day, traveling gymnastics event, focusing on skills, drills, and body movement for the balance beam. The goal of the BQBC is to give gymnasts more confidence on beam by strengthening their mental and physical techniques. We also teach them how to perform on the event and provide the tools to master balance beam.
Samantha Peszek is a 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist, 2007 World Championships Gold Medalist, three-time NCAA Champion & 17-time All American for UCLA. She said, beam is always the "make it or break it" event. When you master beam, it leads to confidence on the other events as well.
Each Bootcamp is different and rotations may vary.
Our staff includes Olympians, judges, NCAA athletes, coaches, and experts.
We’ve had 35 states and 4 countries represented.
“My daughter attended BQBC last summer. She had her first meet last weekend and scored the highest she ever has on beam (and was 1st on beam in her age bracket!). Beam is usually her lowest scoring event and this time it was her highest event score! She said BQBC helped her. I have never seen her more confident in her beam skills.”
“My mom paid long in advance before I had my surgery for this Bootcamp, we weren't 100% sure as to how things would go down. However, when I attended the event, I felt more confident, motivated and in general, optimistic for the road ahead of me & returning back from training. Now, I always think of the tricks I learned at Beam Queen Bootcamp & apply them to my training. Not only was BQBC supportive of my injury, I think it played a huge role in my recovery. ”
“Last summer BQBC came to Utah and I was thrilled to be able to send my daughter. It was well run, positive, motivating, fun and empowering. I can’t say enough good about this camp. I hope every girl gets the opportunity to attend one and I will definitely be sending my daughter again if the opportunity arises!”
“My daughter competed her first meet last weekend & scored a 9.45 on beam & took first place. Thank you so much for the confidence you gave her as this is becoming one of her favorite events now. Your BQBC is amazing & my daughter will forever remember what she learned.”
“Beam Queen Bootcamp was by far the best gymnastics experiences we've had. She was joyful to see her idols & thrilled to work with the amazing coaches there. As soon as we got in the car after the Bootcamp, the first thing she asked me was if she could go to ALL the BQBCs!”
“My daughter had been off for most of a year with an injury, surgery, & rehab. Beam Queen was an amazing part of her return to beam. Everyone at camp is so positive & uplifting. The entire experience is about sharing, working through challenges & tricks for the part of beam that happens above the shoulders. She still returns to the mindful pieces that she learned from Sam & the team. HIGHLY recommend going, maybe especially if you are on the mend from an injury.”
“It was the most fun that I've ever had. I got over many mental blocks and gained moe confidence in myself! ”
“Beam is my 14 year-old daughters arch nemesis. She came away with a clearly refreshed attitude about beam, and went from being very hesitant about the clinic to very thankful that she went. The messages the team conveyed during the open question time was so great! I loved that the girls got to hear the stories of struggle and success. I am very happy to call you and your team a role model for my daughter. Keep up the amazing work! You are changing lives, without question. Luan is amazing as well! ”
“My daughter attended the Beam Queen Bootcamp and it was everything I was hoping it would be and more! The staff was amazing. They were full of positive energy and really had a way with the girls. My daughter left with a sense of accomplishment, some tips and tricks for the beam - and for LIFE!!! Thank you to Sam Peszek and the Beam Queen Bootcamp for empowering our daughters and teaching them to be resilient, how to be strong on the inside and how to exude confidence! My daughter is looking forward to going back again and again!”
“BQBC exceeded every expectation I had and was well worth the money for the entirety of what we took away from the experience. This event helps gymnasts see both the fun and mental aspects of gymnastics, while also presenting them with tangible tactics and resources to implement in their regular practices. The journaling and visualization station was such a unique and meaningful exercise for my daughter that she would not otherwise have gotten the chance to experience. My daughter arrived at BQBC not knowing a soul and came away from the weekend with 5 new friends because of Sam’s ability to lead the girls out of their comfort zone to work together in a fun and positive way. My daughter said it was the best day of her life.”
“Beam was my daughter's nemesis last season and she struggled with the fear of going backwards. It's now her favorite event. For Kayla, hearing that Olympic gymnasts struggled with the same fears and hurdles in their career has boosted her confidence and has given her permission to fail forward. We've seen tremendous growth since BQBC and her joy for the sport is through the roof. It's amazing what the girls accomplish in just 2 days at BQBC. ”
“Beam has never been a favorite event for my daughter, I actually knew in my heart that if she ever quit gymnastics it would be because of beam. I knew if we didn’t do something to build her confidence, it would start to hold her back. I am not going to lie, she was not excited about just doing her least favorite event for two days. Especially, by herself without the comfort of her teammates. She is painfully introverted and shy, but pushing her outside her comfort zone turned out to be just what she needed. In the weeks to follow, she was so excited to tell me about all of the new skills she was accomplishing on BEAM! Whatever they teach at BQBC is working and sinking in because the after effects I've seen are amazing! Regardless of what happens in the gym, I know that the confidence building skills she learned at Beam Queen will help her in every aspect of you life. ”
