Frequently Asked Questions
Q - What is the Refund Policy?
Refunds 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. TTU 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, as it has to go through the business office.
Q - What is the Payment Policy?
Coaches must collect money from the squad and send ONE check to TTU Cheer and Dance Camps to the address listed below.
Please do NOT send individual checks, cash or money orders.
A non refundable $25 per person fee is required to secure the squad reservation. Payment in full is preferred two weeks before your camp date begins. This will allow us to inform Dining services and Residential Life. 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:
TTU Cheer and Dance Camp
1150 McGee Blvd
PO Box 5017
Cookeville TN 38505
Q - How many spaces are available for camps?
We have asked Residential Life to secure the same numbers as previous years, but there are no guarantees. Typically, we can take care of 300 - 350 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 two week time period, 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 TTU Cheer and Dance camp office for any questions. 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.
