The Rock Canyon High School (RCHS) Cheer and Poms Teams hosted the Junior Jags fundraiser last month at the high school. This year cheer and poms decided to join forces and offered a spirit camp, which included two days with the RCHS Cheer team on June 12 and 13 and two days with the Poms team on June 16 and 17.
The girls ages five and older learned two cheer and two dance routines and then performed for their parents at the end of the second day. Games, crafts and snacks were all part of the fun as well as a free Junior Jags t-shirt for each participant.
Poms camp organizer and Castle Pines resident Liz Fletcher commented, “The camps are a lot of fun and we have a lot of the same girls return year after year. I can remember my children going to the camp in elementary school and now my older daughter Paige is on the team and is helping to run the camp. It is such a fun community event that helps support the spirit organizations!”
The Junior Jags fundraiser takes place three times per year in the summer, fall and spring. The upcoming fall dates have been set for September 10-11 for cheer and October 24 for poms.
