Let Me Play Summer Camp 2011 Review

Year two of the UKCA and Let Me Play Summer residential camp was another fantastic success and it was great to see familiar faces and welcome new members to the Cheerleading family during the first week of August 2011.

The setting for the camp is just incredible. Elmhurst Royal School of Ballet in Birmingham is a pleasure to work in, with over 10 fully equipped studios to choose from and a state of the art theatre to showcase a final performance in. The camp location is definitely one of the highlights of the week.

This year was truly international we had participants from all over the world, including Qatar, Switzerland, Germany and Spain, plus of course a range of young people from all over the UK too. It certainly proved that Cheerleading crosses language barriers as the whole group gelled and became great friends whilst achieving and working hard to pull off a great final show.

Part of the fun is staying on camp, there is a mixture of sleeping arrangements, some shared dorms and other individual rooms with en suite facilities, lights out is always interesting to see how creative the campers can be with rule bending and sneaking around sleeping areas! Makes breakfast story swapping very funny the next morning.

Talking of breakfast, this is just one of highlights on the menu, all the food is lovely, plus with all the hard work and sweating that goes on during the day, the lunches and evening meals are always something we look forward to.

At night there is always something going on, organised activities, chilling in the common room, showing off talents and skills, and practising the days routines is usually what surrounds you. Throughout the week you meet so many passionate, talented and motivated young people it really energises you, there’s a constant buzz around camp generated by all the enthusiasm.

We were so happy to be a part of the camp again this year and it was positive to see how its grown and developed from last year, we are very much looking forward to being involved again next year. So what are you waiting for? Get yourself booked onto the Let Me Play Cheer Camp 2012.
