Testimonials from Camp

"'We took our JV and Varsity cheer teams to App State this past summer for the UCA overnight 3 day camp, and we had an amazing experience. We have always held the private home camp where UCA would come to us. From now on we will choose the overnight camps. The teams bonded better and they actually got to experience what cheer camp is really like. They made lasting friendships with other teams, and they still stay in touch with each other.'" Coach ShawnCentral Cabarrus High School
"'UCA Camp at App State is the best college cheer camp experience in the Carolinas and I’m not just saying that because it’s my home school! App State is located in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina where you’ll get the chance to enjoy the fresh air during certain classes throughout the camp. The instructional staff is top notch, always approachable and makes sure everyone has their needs met to start their season out correctly. App State is built on tradition and so is UCA, making this match up perfect!'" Coach MorganAppalachian State University
"'We absolutely loved this camp! The instructors and the head instructor ran a marvelous camp. They were very well organized. We also liked that they stuck to be selective and strict on scoring with evaluations, pin it forward and all American selections.'" Coach LynndaFranklin High School
