The California High School cheerleaders attended Cheer Camp last week, June 25-29, at the California Elementary School gymnasium, instructed by the Sports Crusaders Cheer Team, Holts Summit.

CHS Cheerleading Sponsor Mary Thomas said, "The girls are improving their cheers and chants and learning new stunts and dances. They are also working on conditioning, jumps and basics and learning a new fight song."

Thomas said the camp was a great opportunity for the CHS cheerleaders. "It was free, so we definitely couldn't pass it up. And the Sports Crusaders have been incredible."

Thomas said the 2012 squad consists of 11 girls.
