Testimonials from Camp

"'Most of our squad had never been away to a cheer before. They really had no idea what to expect. The staff, particularly our buddy coach, took us where we were skill wise and made us a more confident squad that gradually grew as the year went along. Now, we will bring a more experienced and excited group to camp this summer.'" Coach Kim
"'We LOVE NCA Camp! Love the emphasis on hitting the crowd and being positive role models at school and beyond. Staff has been amazing and our Buddy Coaches are terrific! My cheerleaders are learning a ton, having a blast and most importantly, bonding as a cheer family. Thank you NCA!'" Coach Tracy
"'The flexibility of the staff at this camp is great. They are willing to adjust and personalize what we need.'" Coach Chelsey
