Testimonials from Camp

"'We loved cheer camp at St. Thomas. The UCA staff and instructors were great to work with. We were able to expand our knowledge on stunt progressions and create a sturdy foundation for the rest of our season. We learned new techniques, had lots of fun, and all of the bonding from staying overnight had us leaving as a family. Couldn't ask for a better camp experience.'"
