Here are some insider tips for those of you trying out for a summer camp staff. Most companies are looking for mature individuals who are independent, and solve problems on their own. Your skills will be evaluated and technique and execution of skills is extremely important. Cheer companies are looking for the full package. Cheerleaders who are able to fit any role; base, top, spot, dance, tumbler, are considered prime candidates. The more versatile you are, the more useful and successful you will be at camp. During your interview process, they are gauging your personality. Outgoing individuals who are good listeners, and great communicators make great instructors. Be yourself! If you are interested in trying out for one of these positions, (or a cheer camp company and would like to be added to this list), contact us to find out which company is right for you.
Here is some information on what companies are hiring and where you can find out qualifications, dates and locations.
