If you ever wanted to perfect your cheerleading moves and get more
ideas for doing better cheers, writing your own cheers and learning how
winning techniques for competitions - cheerleading camp will hold a lot of
adventure for you!
First of all, make sure that your squad chooses a camp with your
special needs in mind. Don't choose a camp that is geared towards helping
squads improve their competition cheering if your squad is looking for
help to tighten up your game routines.
Then make sure every single member of your squad is dedicated to making
the most out of your time at cheerleading camp. The weeks before you
go to camp should be spent, eating right, exercising and practicing your
routines so every members of the squad will be in peak condition. This
not only enables you to get the most out of cheerleading camp, it also
lessens the chance of injury during training.
Packing is also something that you should cover with the squad. Bring
only the necessities as cheerleading camp will involve a lot of working
out and learning of different moves and routines. Bring clothing that
will work well and give you ease of movement without being too loose or
too tight. Your hair too should be in a comfortable and easy to manage
style. That old standard curly pony tail is a common sight in
cheerleading camp as it's easy for everyone to do and keeps the hair out of the
A fun way to remember your squad's time at cheerleading camp is to take
along a few disposable cameras and then have the pictures developed, a
set for each member of the squad. Other cheerleading squads sometimes
choose to make a scrapbook of their session at cheerleading camp using
the photos, writing memories and funny events that happened during the
stay at camp. You will also make a lot of new friends and contacts at
camp. Many squads make calling cards with their names, addresses, phone
numbers and email addresses so it's easy to keep in touch with all the
new friends. You can use plain cards from the office supply and print
them or have some elaborate cards printed for a small price - the choice
is entirely up to you.
You can get a lot out of a visit to a cheerleading camp. Put together a
get away for your cheerleading squad during the off-season and your
squad will come out of camp with a renewed sense of oneness as a team and
a renewed spirit for the sport of cheerleading.
