Testimonials from Camp

"'I really enjoy Leadership camp. It’s such a wonderful time for our girls to not only learn material but also leadership skills. The thing that stuck out so much to me this year was “You are so much more than just a cheerleader.” I have so many girls on my squad that had never been to the leadership camp and being that this program is something that truly touched my life when I was their age, I feel like it is so important. After talking with my girls, they went on and on about this camp. As long as I am coaching, this will be our camp! We had amazing results. Thank you!'" Coach HollyCleveland High School
"'This camp was probably the best we have ever been to. The staff and set up was amazing. Loved the one on one attention. The whole staff at the Tulsa leadership camp went above and beyond everyday!!! They made the camp memorable!'" Coach PattyGoddard High School
"'The material is great! My squad feels like they will use all of it during the school year and they want to come back to Leadership camp next year! Camp was a success!'" Coach AshleyRidge High School
