Overview of Summer Camps
Cross Cheer's cheerleading camps provide a chance for girls to learn the fundamentals of cheerleading in a fun, Christ-centered atmosphere!
Camp activities include cheers, chants, stunts, jumps, dance and tumbling and a special Bible Verse cheer.
Games and crafts are interspersed throughout the week.
Each camper is assigned to a buddy team and will choreograph a custom routine for performance day.
Devotionals are shared daily to help campers understand more about God.
Camp sessions are 3 hours per day.

Camp activities are similar to our elementary camps. Material is culled back to fit shorter attention spans. We have extended snack, craft and game times at PS camps.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What should my daughter wear to camp?
A: Comfortable clothing, tennis shoes and hair out of face. We have special attire themed days at camps (Team Spirit Tuesday & Wacky Wednesday) and details will be emailed prior to camp. Please have your daughter dress modest (we prefer for mid-drifts to be covered and shorts to be modest length and fit).
Q: When do you stop taking registrations?
A: We prefer all campers be registered by Thursday at noon prior to a camp starting on Monday, so that we can appropriately staff the camp and plan accordingly. However, pending spaces available, we will accept registrations up until the start of camp. If your child is registered for the camp the weekend before the camp begins, your child might have a written name tag, and we may not be able to honor your buddy team request.
Q: How long is the end of camp performance?
A: Plan for the show to last 30 minutes or less.
Q: What is an appropriate snack to bring?
A: Any snack not containing nuts (includes peanut butter) is acceptable. We have many girls with allergies so our snack policy is peanut-free. Water is a great beverage to provide, however water fountains are available at most of our camp locations.
Q: What will my camper do at camp?
A: Download one of our schedules to see a sample of the activities included in our camps:
Q: Can my son attend camp?
A: Anyone within the appropriate age range is welcome at our cheer camps, however our camps are specifically designed to reach a female audience and all campers in the past have been females.
Q: Why am I having trouble registering online?
A: Our registrations work best on laptops, desktop computers and iPads. Registrations on iPhones are the most difficult because of the smaller screen size. Feel free to give us a call at 469-708-9563 for help registering.
Q: Are you able to prorate the camp if my daughter will miss a day or two?
A: We are not able to prorate the camps because we hire staff for the entire week, as well as provide craft materials, facility use, and t-shirts for the entire week.
Q: Do I have to pay by credit card?
A: We prefer credit card transactions as that is what our system is set up for. If that is not an option for your family, you can give us a call at 469-708-9563 to register via phone and mail in a check.
Q: What qualifications do your coaches have?
A: Our coaches are have extensive cheerleading backgrounds ranging from high school, college, competitive and school coaching. All coaches are trained to lead camps and work with children in a loving way. Some coaches are CPR, First Aid and Ministry Safe trained and all coaches over the age of 18 have passed background check.
Q: What are the signs and risk of a concussion?
A: Our camps are beginner level and extremely low risk relating to any injuries, but our insurance company requests we have information about concussions available to any family attending our camps. We also educate our coaching staff about this topic. Please feel free to review this document if interested.
Q: What cities currently host cheerleading camps?
A: We currently partner with churches and academies in the following cities in Texas: Dallas, Highland Park, University Park, Frisco, Plano, Richardson, Rockwall, Allen, McKinney, Carrollton, Addison, Heath, and Flower Mound.
Q: Can you bring a camp closer to my home?
A: Absolutely! We want to expand to more cities and churches. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 469-708-9563.
Q: Do you offer any cheerleading opportunities during the school year?
A: Yes! We offer All Star Prep teams and classes throughout the year. Check out the All Star Team page for more information.
Q: What is your refund policy?
