The Woodlands, Texas - The Woodlands High School's Summer Cheer Camp concluded on Friday, drawing a record-breaking attendance of over 250 campers from PreK to 8th grade.

Held at McCullough Junior High School Campus, the camp was led by The Woodlands High School and McCullough Junior High School cheer coaches, along with The Woodlands High School cheerleaders. During the final hour of the last day, each grade had the opportunity to showcase what they had learned. The sold-out Show-Off event featured campers performing a fun Rally Routine they had practiced all week, much to the delight of their families and friends.

The young campers, ranging from competitive cheerleaders, gymnasts, and dancers to those simply interested in cheerleading, displayed a high level of enthusiasm and skill.

"This camp was amazing! I learned so much and made so many new friends," said a 5th-grade camper. "I can't wait to come back next year."

This year marked the first time the McCullough Junior High School cheerleaders participated in the camp. The Woodlands High School varsity cheerleaders also participated in the Show-Off, demonstrating what it takes to be a varsity high school cheerleader in Texas. They concluded their performance with their signature "W" pose, impressing everyone in attendance.

"My daughter had the best time at camp. The high school cheerleaders were so supportive and really helped her improve her skills," said a parent of a 2nd-grade camper. "We will definitely be signing up again next year, and I'll be sure to register early!"

The gym was standing room only, filled with excited family members eager to see the performances.

Coach Reneé Frank had to implement a cut-off on sign-ups due to the camp's popularity, leaving many parents planning to register early for next summer.

"The energy and excitement at this camp were incredible," said a varsity cheerleader. "It was great to see the younger girls so eager to learn and improve. This experience definitely prepares them for what it takes to be a cheerleader at our school."

During the camp, the high school cheer coaches and booster club took the opportunity to hold a meeting and plan the year ahead, ensuring a well-organized and exciting season. Cheerleaders have one of the longest seasons during the school year, beginning with practice in the summer before school starts, continuing through the football season, then moving into the winter sports season with basketball, and finally transitioning to the UIL competition season in early spring.

As the 2024 Summer Cheer Camp came to a close, the energy and enthusiasm shown by all the campers reflected the fun and excitement they experienced throughout the week. For The Woodlands High School cheerleaders, the camp was a great reminder of how far they've come and the joy of mentoring younger athletes.

With plans already underway for the next season, these high school cheerleaders are set to continue inspiring school spirit and community pride, maintaining the tradition of excellence in Highlander Cheerleading, and making a positive impact on The Woodlands community.
