Testimonials from Camp

"'Our team had a PHENOMENAL experience at the UCA Cheer Camp at Clemson this Summer! The campus was so beautiful and the layout was perfect with not too much walking, but enough so that it allowed our upperclassman the experience of a college campus. Our Big Sister was the BEST and as always ALL the instructors were super helpful, friendly, and so much fun! Best Experience Ever!'" Coach PageAcademic Magnet High School
"'The Clemson UCA Camp experience was wonderful! I felt all three teams from the Seneca program benefited by receiving positive feedback and instruction all week that set them up for a successful cheer season. The Camp Staff and beautiful campus were an added benefit that made Clemson the perfect UCA Camp experience for our teams!'" Coach NickieSeneca High School
"'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
