Testimonials from Camp

"'The UCA Staff at Pine Forest FAR exceeds the expectations on a helpful instructor. They not only help the kids at camp, but also coaches to address issues and concerns, and allows for appropriate discussion/suggestions. They are very knowledgable, helpful, and do so with a great personality approach. Love love love Pine Forest experiences each and every year!'" CoachG A R Memorial 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
"'For over 20 years, the Carroll County Cheerleaders have attended UCA Camp and we are tremendously pleased each and every year. From the outstanding staff, wonderful facilities and the material learned while at camp, the UCA program is incredible. The attention and dedication given to the young people is amazing and always top-notch. I can honestly say that I enjoy camp each year because of the UCA Staff and our overnight camp experience. I feel that 20+ years should attest to the fact that the UCA program is second to none.'" Coach NicoleCarroll County High School
