Testimonials from Camp

"'The Springfield High School cheerleaders choose to attend the Embassy Suites Resort camp each year because we have had such great overall experiences. Everything from the UCA instructors, red shirts, the hotel accommodations, food, free afternoon to recuperate or go to the water park, etc. has been ideal. The Embassy Suites is a well-kept facility for the camp and are an ideal distance from our school. The SHS cheerleaders will continue to attend that camp for the foreseeable future.'" Nora PovseSpringfield High School
"'The Embassy Suites Overnight Resort Camp is perfect for any cheerleading or dance squad. I've taken my squad to university overnight camps and the Embassy Suites Overnight Resort Camp is definitely the cream of the crop. It's fantastic to have everything under one roof, it saves on travel time and gives your squad more time for learning skills & routines with the UCA/UDA staffers. I would recommenced to any coach to try this resort camp - the hotel accommodations, food and overall UCA/UDA experience leaves an unforgettable impression on anyone that attends.'" Rachel GasperinSpringfield-Lanphier High School
"'Camp at Embassy Suites was great! My team had a great time meeting other cheerleaders, team UCA time, and learning new skills! The staff were organized, super positive, and motivational to my team! We are a young team, and their encouragement was exactly what they needed! Thank you!'" Coach ErinCentral High School
