Belly Skills Camp Group shot1MORE INFO


These camps are for any jumpers looking to learn the basics of belly flying, from foundational neutral body position and flying skills, to exit fundamentals and formation flying. Not to mention, meeting people, having a blast, and building on it all as we go! Love it. 😀

If you’re someone who has an A-license and not sure what to do next…
If you’re someone who’s not sure who to jump with
If you’re someone who’s afraid to “screw up the jump”
If you’re someone who just wants to have more fun
If you’re someone who wants to see longer-term progress
If you’re someone who wants to learn what it takes to get on bigger ways, teams, or anything else you want to do in skydiving…

These camps are for you. 🙂

No matter how sucky you might think you are, we’ll prove you got mad skills in you! 😉

No matter how new you are, we’ll get everyone involved, learning, and having a blast! We’d love to have you join us. 🙂



*Must be able to safely fly in a 3-way skydive either head-up or head-down

*The freefly camp costs more because there are fewer slots to cover the same costs

*Fewer peeps in the camp means more personal attention, a big value



*Registration includes all ground coaching, jump prep, video on any jump Mel is on, video debrief with the group, and video debrief of any additional footage available from the day. All you have to do is buy your own tickets!

**Coaching with Mel for a day would normally cost $400, this is an awesome opportunity for a full day of coaching shared with friends for super cheap! 😀

  • Meet at scheduled time on camp day!
  • Buy your jump tickets for the day!
  • Plan on making 5 jumps with the camp, or however many you want. Sit in on as much of the coaching and debriefing as you like even if you don’t make all the jumps of the day.

Read all the details of what you’ll get from the camp below!
Any questions, please just drop me a line!

Otherwise, just sign up below and we’ll see you there!
