When preparing for cheerleading camp there are several things that you should look into in order to have a great experience. Many teams are looking to gain material for their games, learn the new & upcoming stunts, or just to do some team bonding.
Whatever your need for summer cheerleading camp may be…here are the key factors to look into in order to make the best choice!
- What cheerleading company do you want to use? There are several great cheerleading camp companies, so you need to investigate what is going to benefit your squad’s needs before making your decision. UCA & NCA are the front runners when it comes to summer cheerleading camps.
- Location of camp. Do you want to go away for cheerleading camp or would you rather have the instructors come to you? There are several cheerleading camps that have “destination locations” like at the beach or at a camp ground. If that is the kind of experience you want for your team, make sure you investigate the location before booking your camp dates.
- Cost of camp. Some cheerleading camps are more expensive because they cater to certain needs. For example, some cheerleading companies will do a specialty stunt camp or an “elite” camp for squads looking for that competitive edge. If you stay local, it may cut the cost of cheerleading camp because you eliminate the housing charges.
- Date & schedule. Some cheerleading camps are scheduled immediately after school ends for the summer. Some are scheduled in the middle of the summer. You need to analyze what time will be best for your team. Summer can be tricky with family vacations…so plan accordingly for your team & their needs.
Cheerleading camp is geared for fun, learning, & getting to know your squad better. Before you make your camp choice…do your own investigating to see what will be best for your team!
