The 2024 Raymondville Varsity Cheer Mini Camp was a resounding success!

The 2024 Raymondville Varsity Cheer Mini Camp was a resounding success, drawing over 70 enthusiastic young students from L.C. Smith Elementary and Pittman Elementary. The camp, designed for children in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade, took place this week and offered an engaging introduction to the world of cheerleading.

Participants spent their days learning the basics of cheerleading, including dances, chants, jumps, and cheer games, all under the guidance of the Raymondville Varsity Cheer team. The camp not only focused on cheer skills but also emphasized the importance of teamwork, confidence, and school spirit.

"The energy was electric from day one” said Raymondville Varsity Cheer Coach Jessica Garza. "Our high school cheerleaders did an amazing job mentoring the younger students."

Parents and family members were invited to a final showcase where the young cheerleaders demonstrated what they had learned throughout the camp. The event concluded with cheers and applause, celebrating the hard work and progress of all participants.

"My son has Autism so I was very scared to have him be alone at a new campus with all new staff. However, the morning of camp my husband said everyone introduced themselves and said hello. My son felt so comfortable. I also called the staff to inform them of my son's diagnosis and they were so accommodating. The Cheerleaders were so incredibly supportive. JJ came home happy, cheerful, and even told me they gave him his favorite food pizza. The best part was having them perform. My husband got to watch his son perform, priceless” said Jacqueline Vasquez, a parent of one of the participants.

Another parent, Tracy Anguiano said, “My daughter came home very excited both days of camp! She said the cheerleaders and staff were so friendly, helpful, and encouraging. The minis learned so much in just 2 short days! My daughter’s favorite part was learning the fight song and said she cannot wait to watch the cheerleaders perform on Friday nights.”

A Pittman Elementary student, Anastacia Quiroga, said, “I really enjoyed learning all the different dances, practicing jumps and playing games with the high school cheerleaders. I’m glad they brought this camp back again.”

The success of the mini cheer camp highlights the strong community spirit in Raymondville and the commitment to fostering young talent. The Raymondville Varsity Cheer team looks forward to continuing this tradition and inspiring the next generation of cheerleaders.
