The 2nd Annual Chaparral Mini Camp, for girls in Pre-K four throughout fifth grade, was hosted the week of October 26th by the Chaparrals and the Chaparral Boosters.

Students in grades Pre-K 4 through 5th grade sign up to participate in the mini camp and pay an entrance fee,” Chaparral Sponsor Natalie Morse said. “ The fee covers the cost of the t-shirt, poms and snacks they receive at the camp.  The girls are taught a routine and allowed to perform on the field at the football game. All money earned from the cost of the camp is donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.”

The little girls get to experience being a chaparral for a week. They attend small practices on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday of the week they are dancing. They get to stay with the chaparrals throughout pre-game after their performance.

As captain I mainly lead the girls in learning an easy routine the officers and I choreograph while also making sure they’re having a great time,” Chaparral Captain Jocelyn Berry said. “I love seeing the excitement on the girls’ faces as they learn different dance moves and when they’re playing ‘little sally walker;’ they love that game!”

The girls get to bond with the older chaparrals during this camp, and many don’t want to leave after pre-game.

“The chaparrals seem to love meeting the young girls and being their mentor in dance for the time allotted.” Berry said. “This opens up many relationships between us and the girls.”
