Location Tips

  • These camps run smoothly and the coaches, cheerleaders and mascots leave with a great experience. Also – the chocolate chip cookies in the cafeteria are amazing, so take a few with you after dinner on Day 3!  Giselle
  • Sam Houston has a different feel to it. It’s always one of my favorite camps to work. – Leslie
  • Mascots – feel free to bring your own props. And, don’t forget your characters! We always make props and come up with some fun, creative skits! – Donald
  • Bring a water bottle to refill at hydration stations. Camp can be hard work sometimes, so be prepared! – Jessie
