Testimonials from Camp

"'Our Fort Zumwalt West cheer squads very much enjoyed the NCA Camp at Lindenwood. Our squads love learning new stunts, and they use the new cheers and chants throughout the year.  Also, our cheerleaders who earned All-American awards were very proud and excited. We also had three cheerleaders who were given staff applications, and I know that at least two of them are planning on applying.  I just heard them all talking about it last week. The NCA Summer Camp at Lindenwood has always been a very positive experience for us and is a great way to kick off our fall season each year!'" Coach VickiFort Zumwalt West
"'Loved the team members’ energy and enthusiasm! The cafeteria staff did an amazing job of accommodating the large number of people! The staff was friendly and the guy in charge was very accommodating. They even prepared a special gluten free option each meal for one of our girls.'" Coach LoganRockwood Summit HS
"'I LOVED the layout of the gym this year. It made it so easy for all teams to see and learn from staff! The entire staff including the support staff and camp manager and trainers worked fluidly to ensure that this camp experience was great! Thank you NCA!'" Coach SarahDixon High School
