UCA Christian
Leadership Camps

A powerful cheer camp with a dynamic spiritual program!

The UCA Christian Leadership Camp Experience

UCA Christian Camps, featuring Varsity Christian leadership curriculum, strive to inspire Christian leadership on and off the field.  Athletes leave camp ready to lead on the sideline, in school and in the community.  The staff is highly skilled in cheerleading, but more importantly are men and women of God.  They possess Christian character and are skilled in teamwork and leadership. The Christian Leadership curriculum will be woven into every area of camp through fun, thought provoking activities such as Daily Devotionals, Personal Journals, Christian Leadership Training & Practical Life Skills, Evening Worship led by Staff, and team bonding!
