Private Camps

private camps for color guard and twirlers

Private camps are great options for those teams unable to travel. Our instructors are talented, personable, and fun. We do everything in our power to simulate a camp atmosphere and make the experience special for each participant. Currently, MA conducts approximately 100 private camps each summer. At a traditional private camp, one custom pep rally or field routine designed by MA is included in the price. You select the rest of the material from our Summer Camp Curriculum DVD of 30+ routines. For any additional custom routine choreography, consult the pricing structure information. Two teaching sessions are offered daily and you may choose from the list of curriculum features below to personalize your private camp.
