Camryn Klein hails from the same Indiana gym that created Samantha Peszek, DeVeau’s School of Gymnastics has been Camryn’s home since she took her first tumble at 3 years old. Camryn, who is heading into her Senior year following the summer, is an Indiana State Champion and a JO National Qualifier. Undecided on plans for college, but I am sure whatever school she chooses will be lucky to have her. Let’s get to know Camryn Klein a bit more as she heads into her last summer with not only DeVeau’s, but Region 5 Gymnastics as well. We would like to wish Cami a great summer and we look forward to seeing her on the competition floor in her senior year.
