Testimonials from Camp

"'Masters Camp at Indiana University was amazing. Staffed with a complete complement of knowledgeable staffers in the areas of stunts, transitions and competition choreography. All girl skills - taught and demoed by all-girl groups! Exciting - fun - competitive and well worth the money! Ready to go back in 2019!'" Coach BrendaPendleton Heights High School
"'I loved our IU location for so many reasons. However the main one being safety, having a middle school team of 32 I was concerned about this. With the dining hall being close to the dorms and the practice facility being just across the street. The staff was INCREDIBLE, I cannot even put into words how helpful and encouraging they were. Still to this day the girls talk about all of them and how they aspire to be like them. They set such high standards for the girls and helped them to the best of their ability. My favorite comment I received was, I didn't think I could do it but so and so said I could so I tried and I did it. The camp overall succeeded by incorporating fun/ structure into the camp experience. WE LOVE UCA!'" Coach DelaneeWest Vigo Middle School
"'UCA Camp was the best! It felt so wonderful to be able to send my squad to the same camp that I attended as a high school cheerleader. The wonderful memories they shared will last a lifetime. The IU Bloomington staff was phenomenal! They were so helpful in getting us registered, checked in and navigating us to where we needed to be. It had been a long time since we attended camp so we needed a lot of assistance, but we loved the convenience of having our dorms, practice facility and dining hall in close proximity. The instructors were so much fun to work with and my squad just loved them. Our Coaches gift bags were awesome too! Ashley, thanks so much for the great communication and sending us home with all the tools we needed to have a successful season full of game day materials, pep rallies, cheers and routines! Love, love, love the Clementune App also.
We are definitely planning to attend again next year. You guys rock!'" Coach ReginaBen Davis High School
"'UCA camp at Indiana University becomes a second home for my cheerleaders. From the time I check in until the last award is passed out, everything runs smoothly. As the years have gone by, UCA continues to listens to suggestions for improvements. I have used UCA camps for over ten years of coaching and will continue in the foreseeable future.'" Coach AliciaFranklin Central High School
"'What we love about UCA camp is the bonding that takes place between our teammates, the growth that takes place, the hoarse voices, the sheer exhaustion - it’s all a part of the experience! UCA staff members are like no other! They are incredible and have an amazing amount of talent. We walked away with such a great foundation to our season!'" Jennifer CoffmanSilver Creek High School
