Testimonials from Camp

"'We love the feeling of family when we come to Chestnut Lake. Chestnut Lake Staff, UCA Staff, and other squads are all welcoming, and made to feel at home.'" CoachMiddletown South High School
"'The UCA Staff at camp were amazing! So many of them went above and beyond for my girls so that they left feeling confident and game ready! The individualized private coaching we got for sidelines, cheers and the Rally Routine was so awesome. The one-on-one time is what I look forward to most as a coach so that I can focus with my girls on improving all the important details while we practice. Coaches meetings were the most productive they have ever been. Every request we made was given attention to and worked into the schedule. Kudos to UCA for always making summer camp so memorable for my teams! We can't wait for next summer!'" Coach MattHoggard High School
"'Pine Forest Camp at Chestnut Lake provides a very unique cheerleading camp experience in exclusive outdoor camp settings. Cheerleaders learn a lot about themselves and each other by living in cabins, communicating with each other, and really bonding as a TEAM. The emphasis is on the safety and security of all who attend, and to provide a wonderful camp experience. Memories are created that will last a lifetime, and the cheerleading instruction from the UCA Staff is second to none.'" Jerry PreschuttiFounder of Pine Forest Cheerleading Camps
