Sev­eral students from area schools vol­un­teered re­cently for cheer camp for chil­dren with spe­cial needs at John­son Park in Cony­ers.

Vol­un­teers from Al­covy High School, East­side High School, Cousins Mid­dle School and In­dian Creek Mid­dle School came out to help with cheer camp.

Spon­sored by Rock­dale Ther­a­peu­tic Re­cre­ation Dept./Rock­dale Parks and Re­cre­ation, Step in Time Ther­apy and lo­cal high schools, chil­dren prac­ticed tum­bling, cheers, stunts and dances. Co­or­di­na­tors of the camp were Tom McPike and Mariel Me­len­dez of Rock­dale Ther­a­peu­tic Re­cre­ation, Lynda Rea­gan of Step In Time Ther­apy and Michelle Evans, Al­covy High School JV cheer­lead­ing coach.

“We held this cheer camp be­cause there are so many kids who are in­ter­ested in cheer­lead­ing but there are not any lo­cal pro­grams for kids with spe­cial needs in this area,” Rea­gan said in an email.
