June is one of the most eventful months of the whole year. You are finishing school, starting your summer break, and getting ready for cheer camp. We covered all you need for a great summer and successful cheer camp on the blog this month, as well as common misconceptions about cheerleading and how cheerleaders can respond to them. Here are some of our favorite articles to catch you up:

  • Just like with cheerleading tryouts and competitions, cheer camp can elicit a lot of emotions. You know you will have a great time, but the excitement, uncertainty, anticipation, and packing stress can take a toll on you! But, don’t worry: You are not alone. Every cheerleader goes through the same thing before cheer camp. That’s how we know that if you have cheer camp coming up soon, this is what you are experiencing.
  • As exciting as cheer camp is, you have to come prepared in order to have the best experience possible! One of the most important ways to be prepared is to make sure you pack all the essentials. Consult this list when packing so you don’t forget anything important.
