Testimonials from Camp

"'Why do I love bringing squads to UCA? Quality instruction, Quality material, and Quality time! From the boogie chants to the Extreme Routine to All Americans to Camp Champs, NOTHING beats a UCA camp. I attended my first UCA camp as a HS Cheerleader in 1986 and brought my first squad back in 2004. We choose Ohio Northern University because it is close to home, priced right for commuters or for those who want to stay, and the campus is beautiful!'" Jami DellifieldAda High School
"'If you are looking for a great camp in Ohio, this is the one to attend! I have taken cheerleaders to ONU for camp several times over the years and the camp never fails to impress. The cheerleaders practice in an air-conditioned gym that is conveniently located near the dining hall and air-conditioned dorms (with private bathrooms!)'" Shelley KockWapakoneta High School
"'My girls and I loved ONU this summer. We were looking for a change, for a new experience. ONU was far enough away for the girls to see talent from schools outside of Cincinnati, but close enough for parents and friends to come and support them on the final day. As a former UCA staff member, I have pretty high standards for camp, and ONU surpassed my expectations. The staff was professional, the camp was well organized, the facilities were fantastic, food was great and all amenities were within close walking distance. ONU will stay on our list as camp options in the future!'" Noelle ReevesReading High School
