I really loved the Nike camp. I made friends, had lots of fun, and learned so much. My high school coach tells me that my game has improved tremendously. Thank you all so much.

My son was extremely motivated by the whole camp experience. The Head Coach, David Duke is a phenomenal person. I only wish that the program could've been longer!

I had a wonderful time at Nike Sports Camp and my parents were pleased with my improvement and the way in which the camp was professionally organized.

This was my sons first "sleep away" camp…I don’t know who was more nervous him or I; but after the first hour of check in and him getting settled he was fine…However after my first night of anguish I survived..Every night that he called he was very excited to tell me everything they did, but he was exhausted…so it was a short call. When we picked him up on Thursday he was already asking to sign up for the next available camp. He truly loved it and felt encouraged and supported by all of the coaches. My son asked if we could get tickets to watch the 'Adelphi Panthers" in action. Thanks so much for a wonderful program!
