Allmovie wrote, "Cheerleader Camp won't hold pleasure for any except the most dedicated Z-level celebrity watchers." From the Mind of Tatlock enjoyed the film, saying "Even though Cheerleader Camp is in no way perfect (honestly though, neither are those other more lucrative slashers), I still think you should keep those pom-poms raised and give this one a shout."
A sequel was planned by producers of the original film, but the project was eventually scrapped and made into another, unrelated film (Camp Fear) that was produced and financed by another production team.
