The Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders trains thousands of cheerleaders and coaches each year across the country. We look forward to helping you achieve the best results for your program when you attend one of our Summer Camps in your area.
a tradition of EXCELLENCE
The Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders has been serving Christian, Private and Parochial schools since 1986. FCC is founded on providing “Christ Centered Cheerleading Excellence Worldwide” and prides itself on providing the most outstanding personal touch in the industry. Each camp guarantees one instructor to every twenty campers to ensure each child has a remarkable camp experience. FCC camps are 3 - 4 days depending on the camp location. Participants have the option to stay on
campus or commute from school or a local hotel if they choose to stay oﬀ campus. The spiritual development of each camper is the main focus of an FCC camp. Each morning is kicked oﬀ with a devotional message and each evening the FCC Staﬀ will deliver a themed gospel centered message during the FCC Prime Time. This time has been set aside in order to give the campers and coaches an opportunity to participate in praise and worship, drama and exhortation.

The Early Years 1986 - 1995 This entire journey began in the summer of 1986 as a Score Cheer Camp, where we conducted one camp in Garland, TX. Score was and is today an organization that provides athletes with an option of using sports to reach others through short-term mission trips and was founded by the late Ron Bishop. Cary Coleman, who was an athlete under Ron Bishop during his college years started what was known at that time as Score Camps. During the early days, Score conducted “all-sports” camps as a way to conduct athletic camp ministry for Christian schools. In 1991 Score Cheer Camps had grown to two full camp staﬀs and had eliminated all sports with the exception of cheerleading. Back in that era, cheerleading was the only sport without a faith-based option for summer camp. In 1992, Coleman landed the national endorsement of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). This endorsement opened the door for coast-to-coast summer camps.
The Growth Years 1996 - 2005 This era in history created the most growth of the summer camp program. In 1996, the Board of Directors agreed on changing the name from Score Camps to The Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders (FCC). FCC saw a record number of campers during this time period. FCC saw tremendous growth in the National Championships as well as a result of the camp increase. In 1999, FCC started the National Christian Cheer Coaches Conference in Atlanta. This conference has equipped close to 1,000 coaches over this period. In 2004, FCC piloted a new program, Impact Cheerleading, which is designed to reach the youth in our churches and schools. This new start up would prove to be the key program that would transform FCC into an organization of the future.
The Expansion Years 2006 - 2015 This era was focused on expanding our ministry to new areas of ministry. We were blessed to see the continued growth of Impact Cheerleading. FCC expanded in the competitive arena by adding more regional competitions. We grew and developed our Championship Series to ďŹ ve locations. We also witnessed our largest nationals of over 125 teams in 2014 at the 25 th Annual National Cheerleading Championships. In 2008 FCC started providing Praise and Worship artist at our larger camps. We saw the continued equipping of our coaches through social media, webcast, conference calls and our phone app. We added a West Coast Coaches Conference as an additional option to our National Conference. We increased the summer camp options to include multiple choices based on length of stay and price points. We broaden our Global Initiative to include trips to the Czech Republic, Costa Rica and Africa. We became more focused to our commitment to Matthew 28 and the Great Commission.
The Legacy Era 2016 & Beyond This era is the most exciting era in our history. It involves a new generation of campers and competitors who are second generation FCC. We have been blessed to have an increasing number of FCC Staﬀers and FCC Coaches who were former campers and competitors. We also have an increasing number of FCC Staﬀers who are children of former FCC Staﬀers. There are literally hundreds of FCC Coaches nationwide who were once FCC campers. This era saw the formation of #FCC4LIFE. This campaign involves former and current campers who commit to one or all of the following criteria to be a lifelong member. The #FCC4LIFE includes 4 areas of involvement: Prayer – Donate – Serve – Share. We have seen the #FCC4LIFE community grow each year and will clearly be the direction for future coaches and funding that will secure FCC for years to come.

Amanda Thacker Beery 1988 - 1993
Attending camp was the highlight of every summer! I was always so in awe of the staﬀ and loved the opportunity to do my favorite thing from morning to night - cheer! I always looked forward to learning new skills but the bond we made as a team at the start of the season was vital. The spiritual aspect of camp helped me through some of my most challenging moments as a high school student, including an unbearable loss my senior year 2 days before camp started. I could never put into words the impact camp had on me. It was life changing and helped shape who I am as a coach today!
Lori Slemp Blair 1991 - 1996
FCC camps are and have been a huge part of my life and mean so much to me. I have so many amazing memories as a camper, staﬀer, and now as a coach. As a camper, it was a time of learning more about cheer, bonding with my coach and teammates, and growing in my walk with the Lord. As a staﬀer, camp was about ministering to campers while growing as a Christian and a cheerleader. Camp as a coach is a time to learn, laugh, and love. At camp, it is so amazing to be able to bond with my team, receive awesome instruction from the staﬀ, and worship the Lord all at the same time. I continue to support and love FCC, because of the impact it has had on my life and now my own daughters' lives. I see and get to experience the diﬀerence in FCC vs other cheer organizations, which is Jesus.

35 years of growing... Morgan Maygarden Gleason 1994 - 1999
Camp was a wonderful experience for me every year. It was a combination of my two greatest loves: Jesus and cheerleading. To escape the real world with your closest friends and focus on nothing but building your cheer squad and growing your relationship with Christ was such a blessing. Camp always bonded our squad together and rooted us in love. I know that the stress of preparing for competition and cheering basketball games would have been daunting had we not taken the time during the summer to cement our relationships. I still look back at FCC camp with nothing but fond memories. I’m grateful for the cheerleading I learned at camp, but even more grateful for the time spent experiencing God’s love!
Loveny Rivas Savarino 1998 - 2000
I ﬁrst attended FCC Camp in 1998 with Grace Christian School. Cheerleading Camp was always very positive, fun and spiritually meaningful. Not only did our cheer team grow stronger in the sport, but we grew stronger in our faith. FCC Camp always challenged us to be the light in our school and community. In 2000, I graduated and came back to coach at Grace Christian School for another 9 years. FCC Camp was even more meaningful as a coach because I would witness the lives of the cheerleaders change through Christ. Many cheerleaders rededicated their lives and a handful of others accepted Christ for the ﬁrst time. It was amazing to see the sport of cheer being used to lead people to Jesus. During the 9 years of coaching Grace, the program won 9 national titles, 2 national grand titles, and 7 national stunt group titles. I continue to support FCC for the diﬀerence they make in the lives of the cheerleaders as well as their family and friends. FCC is solely Christ centered.

Jenn Kawai Albeanu 1997 - 1999
I attended FCC as a camper from 1997-1999. To say it was life changing is an understatement. The summer of ‘97 is when I heard and felt the Lord for the ﬁrst time. I was a 14 year old 8th grader entering my freshmen year of high school at my ﬁrst ever FCC camp. I remember camp being fun, hard work and loving jump jam—but the reason I remember it the most is the spiritual mentorship I received from staﬀ and the God-inviting atmosphere. After high school, I went on to become a staﬀer with FCC (the BEST summers of my life!) as well as coach at my alma mater, Whittier Christian. During that time, my teams won numerous FCC National titles as champions. In 2007, I was honored to receive FCC Coach of the Year at 23 years old. Coaching was my passion and excellence and perseverance was what I hoped to teach my teams, both physically and spiritually at home and at camps.
Alyssa Hamilton 2005-2009
I ﬁrst attended FCC as a 7th grader for Life Christian Academy in 2005. I fell in love with everything about it! I thought the staﬀ were amazingly talented, fun day was the best and hardest day of the week, and I learned so much. I continued to attend every year following, but it was my sophomore year when something changed. The director of our camp, Marissa gave a bold talk about making faith your own at prime time, and that was when I realized I did not have my own relationship with the Lord. I gave my life to the Lord that night and everything changed. My senior year at camp I was awarded the staﬀ application and tried out at FCC nationals. By the grace of God I made staﬀ and I worked for FCC from 2010 for the next six summers. I met so many amazing men and women of God and loved serving alongside the staﬀ each summer. My third summer in staﬀ I was asked to join leadership. That was when I really fell in love with the coaching and administration side of cheerleading.

35 years of learning... Madison Marshall 2007 - 2013
I was a camper from 6th-12th grade, a FCC staﬀer for 3 years, and have a been a coach for 4 years. FCC is more than just a cheer camp and competition company. It’s been a place of growth spiritually and physically as well as a place to learn how to win and lose with excellence and dignity. As a cheerleader, you walked through a lot of hard seasons in life. FCC pours into all areas of a camper’s life. FCC encourages and equips them to be a better cheerleader and more importantly a better Christ follower. My favorite and most memorable times in life have deﬁnitely been being a part of the FCC Family and calling myself a “Tiger”.
Keelie Laird 2011 - 2017
I have been a camper at FCC camps since I was in the 6th grade. Camp was a time that I looked forward to year-round. FCC camp to me was a place that I could show my talent and get coached by other college cheerleaders. More than cheerleading, I also was poured into spiritually by people who were ahead of me in life. I went to camp for 7 years. Each year I went to FCC camps I built stronger relationships with the staﬀers. These staﬀers have such a unique position to pour into their campers. Not only did I look up to the staﬀers for their cheerleading ability, but also for their walk with the Lord. The summer after my senior year I became a staﬀer and it was a better experience than I could have imagined.

Terri Abasial 1990 - 1991
My journey with FCC began my junior year in high school when we attended our ﬁrst SCORE cheer camp and fell in love with the message that SCORE had to share. Cheerleading was my passion and I discovered that summer that the Lord could use cheer as a tool to share His Gospel. After I graduated from high school, 10 summers followed of heading oﬀ to travel the country to teach camps. It was during these 10 years that I got to be a part of impacting hundreds of young girls and guy’s lives and seeing ﬁrst-hand the impact of sharing Christ and being a role model. In return I was able to grow in the Lord and in my faith. My life was blessed by these amazing kids as well as the staﬀ that I worked with. This would then overﬂow into my life as I went back to college each fall. When my daughters began high school, I was asked to be a part of their school cheerleading coaching staﬀ and that is when I got to experience FCC from both a parent and cheerleading coach’s perspective. I now could see the impact that FCC was making on my athletes as well as my daughters’ lives. As I look back over the last 30 years of involvement with FCC from camper, competitor, instructor, director, coach, and even judge, I can’t help but feel blessed for the many opportunities this ministry has given me.

Jill Martin 1991 - 1996
My journey with FCC started almost 30 years ago. In the summer of 1991, I experienced my ﬁrst FCC camp as a 7th grader. This was a camp unlike any I had ever experienced before. Not only did I get to learn skills and enjoy a sport I loved, but I got to see how much the Lord could be the center of it all. For the next 6 summers, I looked forward to seeing who we got for our pep pal, bonding with my team, improving skills, and yes, all those stressful evaluations and sleep deprived mornings! I can’t remember a time there wouldn’t be an FCC staﬀer right there to pray with you, calm your nerves and encourage you. Ever since my ﬁrst year as a camper, I always knew I wanted to be an FCC Staﬀer - and that’s just what I did! I enjoyed every minute of staﬃng for FCC. The summer of 2015 was pretty special to me. It was my ﬁrst-year coaching at Calvary Christian High School and I was taking them to FCC camp. What made this summer so special was that my daughter was on this team and I would get to watch her experience FCC camp ﬁrst-hand. To no surprise she loved it! What a blessing it was for me to watch her enjoy all 4 years attending FCC camps. One of her favorite parts of camp was prime time and the praise and worship. Our legacy continued, and my daughter was able to staﬀ for FCC. Just seeing her in an FCC uniform brought back so many memories. FCC means so much more to me than just a cheerleading company. It is part of my past, my present and my future.
