About the United Spirit Association

The United Spirit Association represents a 70-year tradition of summer training camps and special events, offering quality instruction and a creative environment where students can develop friendships and enjoy a positive learning experience.

The USA was established as an outgrowth of Robert Olmstead’s original California Specialty Camps. Mr. Olmstead conducted his first summer training camp in 1950 and since that time, hundreds of thousands of students have enjoyed “A summer vacation where learning is fun.” Today, as a part of the Varsity Spirit Corporation, the USA actively promotes the values, ideals and vision of the Olmsteads while working to reach students now and in the future. The USA is the largest summer camp and special event organization of its kind in the western United States, conducting camps primarily in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. Through its “Home” camps and Special Events/Competitions, the USA reaches students and performers nationwide.

Living up to its name, the United Spirit Association provides specialized instruction and year-round events for spirit, dance and band auxiliary activities. This summer, USA camps will offer complete programs at all levels for cheerleaders, Songleaders/Pom, Dance Teams, Drum Majors, Mascots, Pep/Short Flags, Dance/Drill Teams, Advisors, Leadership Teams, Directors and Coaches.
