Summer cheer camps offering specialized skills training

The most comprehensive programs are offered at camps dedicated to cheering; some of these will, in fact, be overnight cheer camps. You'll find a number of these in major cities like Toronto, Ottawa or Vancouver. These focused cheerleader camps are ideal for girls (and boys) who want to excel. They will have expertise in training, perfected through experience and dedication. For example, there are cheer camps in the GTA that offer a variety of programs throughout the year, tailored around different breaks in the school year. Additional programs offered by these locations might include after-school workshops or even private lessons. 

Attending one of these overnight cheer camps is  a great way to meet people and learn sophisticated cheerleading skills. Skills learned or used in a cheer camp can apply to other sports, including gymnastics, dance and other activities. But the real fun is in learning cheers.

Cheerleading summer camps are not restricted in any way, it should also be noted. Camps take in children as young as four years or less; there are cheer camps for beginners of all sizes. Camps also certainly welcome all genders.

Why go to cheerleader camp?

Cheerleading summer camps offer in-depth skills training that may surprise some. Here's a look at some things you might find at one of these camps:

  • Personalized training. Some camps are able to offer extensive one-on-one training, where young cheerleaders can hone specific skills or get help with targeted techniques.
  • Focus across a variety of skills you will need as a cheerleader: camp curriculum may vary across all aspects of cheerleading, including stunt work, acrobatics, dance, pyramid building, tumbling, choreography, calling, etc.
  • Video analysis that shows where you are going wrong, to help improve specific moves or skills.
  • Some camps will even be staffed by professional cheerleaders and choreographers.

You know that cheerleading is not as simple as some people think. A cheerleading summer camp will take this sport just as seriously as you do. If you are passionate about cheering, this is the right path to take. You can meet professionals and connect with people already working in professional sports. It's an exciting way to extend yourself!

No matter what kind of camp you go to, you are sure to make more improvements in flexibility and agility than you would sitting at home!
