Well, since Go For It was cancelled, I looked for another camp for us to attend. There was a Precision Dance Camp on the exact same days as Go For It. So, they were very willing to accommodate our team! Everything was the same price and it also included meals! So, we attended our first Precision Dance Camp.
The first thing that happened when we arrived was team pictures. Here are the pics:
The 2011-12 MMHS Elleves
A silly pose.
We had a good time at the camp. It is similar to BDT Camp, but not as intense. Here are some pics from the camp:
End pose of one of the routines they learned.
Beginning of the camp dance.
Cute poster with pictures of each girl that says she has the "heart of a champion". That was the theme of the camp.
Having fun at lunch time!
The team - these are the free shirts we got from the All Points Travel picture contest on FB.
Pool party at the hotel on the last night.
Our team won the "Best Precision" trophy! Good job Elleves!
Other awards we won at PDC:
Best Technique: Kaitlynn Blood; Most spirit: Melissa Durtschi; Best Showmanship: Jamie Topham; Most Improved: Lindsey Bagley; Hardest Working: Makayla Wilson; Premier Dancer for Leaps - Shalee Hiskey.
The next week we were off to BDT Camp in Park City. We decided to go up the night before and stay over so we wouldn't have to get up as early, since we had to be up there ready to go at 7 a.m. We went to dinner at the Baja Cantina in Park City. Here are some pics:
One table of Elleves.

Kendrick, me, and Scott.
We went to the hotel after dinner and the girls had some time to relax and go down to the pool and hot tub. Then we had a team meeting/motivational talk and then went to bed so we would be ready to begin camp tomorrow morning.

We performed our hip hop routine "Turbulence" for the performance night.
Our Elleve alumni came up to support the new team!
Hailey Bishop and Aubrey Finch won drill down medals!
Neisha Martinez, Jada Poulsen, and Kimber Creer were drill down finalists!
Taking a break - eating the Twix candy bars from our sister team - Payson!
Payson was our sister team--it was fun to be sisters with them. Here were are in a big massage circle! It was fun to chat with Chelsea and Ashley, (Payson coaches who are two of my old Paysetters!) We plan to do some things together throughout the year.
Practicing the "edge" routine.
Be all you can be - with our BDT leader.
Makayla was named to the Top 5 Top Corp Dancers!
The team with our awards - we won an award for the Edge Routine!
Shalee, Makayla, and Kaitlynn - were named to the Top Corp finalists.
Me and Makayla - so proud of her to be named to the Top Corp!
The team worked hard and did well at both camps! I'm excited to see how we do this year and I love all of our new members! They have a lot of new energy that is always fun to have on a team. It was also fun to have Scott and Kendrick there with me. Scott helped me with the transportation and tending Kendrick. I'm so grateful that he can help me and also that Kendrick could be there with me. That way I didn't have to leave him for three days!
