  • 4/5.

My daughter attended your camp last week at the Governor’s Academy and she can’t stop talking about it!  She really learned a lot and improved her skills greatly by the end of the week.  I had the opportunity to watch a few of the scrimmages and your coaching staff was great.  My son, Brady, will be attending next year as well!  Many thanks for making my daughter’s week very memorable.

Great camp, motivated coaches and a lot of fun with friends outside the games.

  • 5/5.

This was my daughter's fifth year of Behn Camp, she has been participating since she was a very tall Kindergartener. We schedule our summer around which week this camp is offered. This year she told me that she loved the "intensity of play" among her peers, because it made the game so much more fun since the plays were faster, more accurate, and more challenging than her basketball exposure to date.
