The free Virtual Cheer Camp will run from July 27 through July 31.

LA County co-ed youth between 4-18 years old can participate remotely via video conference from any computer or mobile device. All levels are welcomed.
Registration is free but required in order to participate in the live stream event. To sign up, you’ll create a free account on LA County Parks' online registration system.

After the initial kick-off, the remaining four days of Cheer Camp will have cheer programming available via LA County Parks From Home Virtual Recreation Center with pre-recorded videos from LA County Parks and Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders. We’ll offer suggested schedules for all levels: Minis, Juniors, and Teens. Feel free to go at your own pace.

Message from the Mayor
From the start of the COVID-19 crisis, I have made it clear that I would always level with the people of this city, speak honestly about where we are, and tell you what we’re doing to fight the virus and what you can expect in the days and weeks ahead.

As we continue to face this unprecedented public health challenge, that commitment remains the same. So here’s the bottom line: COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon. It will be with us –– and remain a threat –– for the foreseeable future.

Right now, our COVID-19  threat level  is at orange. This means the virus is a danger to all of us and continues to spread throughout the community. In order to stay safe, we need to continue wearing masks, avoid gatherings, wash our hands frequently, and keep physical distance from others.

Contact Tracing Alert: Scam!
You may receive calls from someone claiming to be a contact tracer

People might call you claiming to be a contact tracer. You need to be vigilant and prepared to know the difference between scammers and legitimate tracers.

  • Legitimate contact tracers will only ask where you may have visited recently and who you may have come in contact with. They will never ask for money, your immigration status, your Social Security number or your personal financial information.
  • If you receive a call and are unsure about the legitimacy of the caller, call the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health COVID-19 Contact Tracing Call Center at 833-540-0473 to confirm that the person who contacted you is authorized by the public health department.
