Campia’s beginnings date back to 1983 when Mount Pearl’s Reid Community Center was opened and the Town of Mount Pearl established a recreational gymnastics program. Through this recreational gymnastics program, participants enhanced their gymnastics skills and developed a love for the sport. A number of participants expressed a desire to become competitive athletes.
In 1986, the Mount Pearl Gymnastics Club was established as a not-for-profit club to develop a competitive gymnastics program. In 1994, Campia Gymnastics became incorporated as a not-for-profit gymnastics organization and also assumed responsibility for the recreational gymnastics programs previously operated by the City of Mount Pearl.
In 1999, Campia merged with the CBS Gymnastics Club who was in need of a new home after restructuring of the school system left them with no training space at Topsail Elementary. This merger doubled the size of Campia’s competitive team and significantly increased its equipment inventory.
In 2000 Campia moved from the Reid Community Centre to Donovan’s Business Park in order to obtain a dedicated, full-time gymnastics facility. This facility allowed Campia to significantly expand its recreational and competitive programs.
In 2016 Campia moved to its new home on 21 Old Placentia Road in Mount Pearl.
