Camp Notes

Camp Theme

Each year the USA chooses an inspirational theme to go along with the camp season that teams can use throughout the year at their own schools. This theme is reflected in the cheers, handbooks, ribbons and even the annual USA Camp Dance.

USA 2022 CAMP THEME: “THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE USA”

It’s often said home is where the heart is. The place you call “home” cane be anywhere you feel safe, supported and surrounded by those that lift you up. Home can be the physical space you share with your family – a place where you’ve gained courage and other valuable life skills that have shape you into the person you are today. Home can also be your school campus; a place where your brain is stretched, and lifelong memories are made. Home can also be your community of friends, providing acceptance and a sense of belonging. Wherever you are welcome to be your true self… you are home. And, no matter the road life takes you down, it’s important to remember you can always return home… to your hometown, the big homecoming game or wherever feels like home for you… there’s simply no place like it.
