Summer Cheer/Stunt/Dance/Tumbling Camps Promote Healthy Lifestyles
HENDERSON, Nev. – The Black Mountain Recreation Center, 599 Greenway Rd., is hosting summer Cheer/Stunt/Dance/Tumbling Camps from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, June 28-July 2 (activity 183008-00) and Aug. 9-13 (183008-01). Camps are open to youth and teens ages 7-15 for $60 per week, with an additional $10 for materials due at class. Register online at cityofhenderson.com or at any City of Henderson recreation center. Campers should bring water, a healthy lunch and tennis shoes. The camp is sponsored by the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department.
Campers will experience the energy of cheerleading, dance and tumbling in the week-long program, which places an emphasis on cheers, tumbling, and basic stunts. The instructor introduces skills needed to try out for cheer squads and provides campers with positive reinforcement and personal attention.
“This camp builds a strong foundation in cheerleading, but its real purpose is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles in young people,” said Nick McLemore, Recreation Services supervisor, City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. “Cheerleading, dancing, and tumbling all enhance flexibility, balance, strength, and increase body awareness. It’s an excellent way for kids and teens to stay fit.”
