Designed to focus on specific competitive cheer skills, Junior Ravens is the perfect camp for competitive cheerleaders! Participants will have the chance to perform at our annual Fireworks Night during Training Camp at M&T Bank Stadium (date TBD).
Junior Ravens is open to both teams and stunt groups. Participants must have prior cheer experience to include basic stunt technique. This camp will focus on team skills.
Bring your partner stunt group and get the most out of stunt instruction during camp*! Learn creative stunt entries, proper stunt and dismount technique, and a variety of dismounts and transitional stunts. Variations are available for all skill levels. Camp will also include instruction in cheer tumbling, dance, and competition performance.
This is your child's chance to learn what it takes to be a Baltimore Ravens Cheerleader!
