Darlington Middle School hosts Cheer Camp

More than a dozen young ladies spent their week at the Darlington Middle School Cheer Camp having fun and learning some new skills. Cheer coach Tammy Capers said that the camp was for young ladies ages 6 -12; the youngest ones at the camp were eight-years-old. Several girls currently on the middle school cheer squad came to the camp to help.

“They worked on cheer motions, high v’s, low v’s,” Caper said. “These are the motions they will use in their cheers.”

There is one thing that comes to mind for many people when they think of cheerleading.
“We are also teaching them the most famous move: the toe touch,” Capers said. “We haven’t advanced to any other jumps but we did teach them the toe touch.”

The camp, which ran Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon, had a variety of things for the girls to do.

“Just like the middle school girls, they come in and do warm-ups,” Capers said. “We played a few games. We are going to have a program for parents where they will show off everything that they’ve learned.”
Campers went home with new friends and a t-shirt to remember all the fun that they had.
