Frequently Asked Questions
Q - What is the Refund Policy?
Refunds, full or partial, will not be issued for circumstances where the camper has made other commitments during that week and commutes back and forth or stays for two or three sessions and then leaves. Tennessee Tech Cheer and Dance Camp is charged the full amount for food, UCA staff instruction, housing, insurance, etc, whether or not the camper stays the full length of the camp. Therefore, unless the camper, coach or chaperone is injured or has a family or medical emergency, no refund will be issued.
Any and all refunds will be processed on the Monday following the last camp week of that month and will NOT include the registration fee or the UCA/UDA instruction fee. (Any refunds for June will be processed before our fiscal year end of June 30 and any July refunds will be processed on the last camp day in July). It takes two weeks for the refund to be processed..
Q - What is the Payment Policy?
A per person deposit is REQUIRED in order to secure your spot for camp. The deposit is due by May 1, and is NON REFUNDABLE. The balance is due two weeks prior to the camp you are attending. Individual checks will not be accepted. Please send ONE check from the school or Booster account. If balance due or payment in full cannot be made within the two week time period, we will be happy to make arrangements for payment.
Send payment to:

Q - How many spaces are available for camps?
Typically, we can take care of 300 campers in any given week. The first two camp weeks of June fill up very fast so if you are interested in either of those, you need to get your registration to us. Early registration and deposit is strongly recommended especially since we are now in the new dorm. Space is limited and because of high demand on our camps, it is first-come, first-served. If no deposit is received by the required deadline, we will call to confirm whether a squad is actually coming. If we are unable to contact the coach, we will remove the squad from the list and put another in that spot. We will make every effort to contact by email, phone, regular mail or UCA/Varsity Rep.
Q - How can I get information about Cheerleading or Dance Camps?
If you are on a cheerleading squad or dance team, have your cheerleading coach or dance team coordinator call our office, and we will work with him/her on getting your squad to camp! Have them check the website because we try to keep all of our information up to date, so check here first. If you still don't find what you are looking for, have the coach or dance coordinator call the Tennessee Tech Camp office at 931-372-6212. Our friendly staff will do their best to help!
Q - Can a squad be registered if there have been no tryouts yet?
Yes, the coach knows how many cheerleaders/dancers he/she will want to have, and all that is required at registration is an anticipated number of participants and what camp they wish to attend. Changes can be made upon completion of tryouts.
Q - Can I attend without being on a squad?
Training is oriented toward team building skills and trust among the squads. Learning routines and how to perform them together is essential to squad success. Therefore, we discourage individuals attending camp.
Q - How many people to a room?
School Squads are housed on the same floor - two per room. If there is more than one coach, we will do our best to give each coach a room. In the case of an odd number of team members, three per room. Coaches must decide who rooms together.
Q - Which camp will be the Mascot Camp?
The first camp week in June is always the Mascot Camp.
Q - How does housing work?
Tennessee Tech Campers will be housed in New Hall North. Availability is first come, first served. Squads who have paid the deposit or paid in full prior to camp will be given priority. Special requests for housing will be accommodated to the best of our ability and within the confines of the dorm layout. The rooms are suites with bathrooms inside the suite and are fully air-conditioned. In most cases campers will be housed two per room. The residence halls will be supervised by Tennessee Tech Staff. Keys will be provided on check in day. There is a $35 fee for lost keys. Refunds will not be issued for found keys after camp has closed.
Q - Can visitors come visit during camp?
For security reasons, campers will not be able to bring visitors to the residence halls during the week of camp except during check in on Tuesday and check out on Friday. Parents, family, and friends are invited to attend Opening Ceremony Tuesday afternoon, and Camp Championships on Friday. Campers will not be able to have visitors otherwise during camp.
