Grand Island Public School District issued the following announcement on Sept. 12
The energy and enthusiasm in the Grand Island Senior High West Gym was astounding as the Islander cheerleaders taught younger students new skills during the GISH Cheer Camp, Saturday, September 7.
More than one hundred campers attended the youth cheer camp. This camp has been put on by the GISH cheerleaders for more than fifteen years. Girls preschool through fifth grade attended the camp.
Cheer Camp campers.On top of learning a dance and cheer routine, campers also played games, interacted with GISH cheerleaders and performed for family and friends.
“The camp is such a fun day for kids to interact and perform with our cheerleaders,” GISH Cheer coach Alicia Lechner said.
The campers enjoyed their time dancing, making new friends and learning from the cheerleaders. Addi Mankin, a first grade camper, said what she enjoyed most was learning the dance routine. This was Addi’s third year attending the camp.
“I love spending time with my friends and having fun,” Addi said of why she attends the GISH Cheer Camp.
Cheerleaders work with campers.Twenty GISH cheerleaders ran the camp and helped teach the campers. GISH cheerleader Kaysha Anson said it was fun to see the young girls get excited about cheering. Kaysha said the most rewarding part of this camp is sharing her cheerleading knowledge with the campers.
“Maybe someday they’ll become cheerleaders at GISH, too,” Kaysha said.
There are more GISH cheerleading opportunities coming up for elementary students. GISH cheerleaders are hosting their first Princess Day on Sunday, October 20. The next GISH Cheer Camp is scheduled for Saturday, February 1, 2020.
