Cheer Camp

Girls ages 4-12 are invited to jump into the fun of cheerleading this summer! Learn tons of new cheers, perform age-appropriate stunts, improve technique, and build your repertoire of moves and formations.

While at camp, the cheerleaders will work on cheers, dances, tumbling, and paint actual run-through and fence signs. All campers will receive their own Darlington pom-poms and a camp T-shirt. Participation is limited to 75. 

Daily Dress Themes for the Week:
Mismatched Monday: Wear mismatched clothes and crazy hair
All Star Tuesday: Represent your favorite sports team
We Love Darlington Wednesday: Purple and White
Throwback Thursday: Neon 80s Day
Go Tigers Friday: Camp T-shirt with black shorts or purple cheer skirt

Note: Campers should bring a water bottle and snack to Huffman Athletic Center each day.
