The Grace Christian Academy varsity cheerleaders recently attended the Universal Cheerleading Association’s Cheer Camp at Edgewater Resort at Panama City, Florida. 

The camp ran from Thursday, May 28, to Sunday, May 31. During camp, the girls learned cheers, chants, dances and stunts. The instructors at camp were all college cheerleaders. The instructors cheer for Kentucky, Clemson, USC, UGA, UCF, UF and Tulane. Each night the squad was evaluated on their performances.

The girls received two blue superior ribbons and the spirit stick (for the most spirited squad) during camp. On the final day, the girls won a Superior Award, third place in the band dance, and the “whale” award (this was awarded to the most determined, hardest working squad).
