Cheer Camp, under the direction of Hofstra Cheerleading, is designed for cheerleaders who desire a full day of expert training in all facets of cheerleading. C.A.N. Cheer Camp offers an innovative and creative curriculum developed and instructed by Coach Nowierski-Farina and her Division I collegiate staff. Hofstra Cheerleading is a nationally recognized program with ten UCA College National Championship titles in 2003, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2016. The staff is all AACCA-certified cheerleaders, and the gymnastics sessions are led by qualified instructors.

Training includes cheers, dances, jumps, stunts, pyramid building, and gymnastics. A routine with skills the campers are taught will be performed at the end of camp for Family and Friends. The camp is structured to encourage both individuals and teams to believe in themselves and achieve their personal best. C.A.N. Cheer Camp encompasses all styles and skill levels, from beginner to elite. Cheerleaders are grouped according to age and skill level. Teams are able to work on routine building for the upcoming season as well as create spirited traditions for their schools.
