Thank you for a great week!

The coaches were very dedicated to helping the girls improve.  My daughter said one of the coaches worked with her individually and really helped her improve her skills.  The coaches really helped boost the girl’s confidence and discover their hidden skills.  Thank you for a great week!

Loved it!

My daughter cannot stop talking about her camp experience.  From the coaches to the other campers she just loved meeting everyone and learning from them. The skills the coaches brought to the table were just amazing and priceless.  The coaches worked with each girl on skills they noticed needed refining or a little extra help.  I cannot thank everyone enough for all the hard work they put into making this camp so great.

Thank you for such a great week Nike!

This camp gave my daughter the opportunity to learn new skills and to sharpen skills she already had.  On the first day of camp check-in was easy and the coaches were so welcoming and friendly.  I instantly felt that my daughter would be safe and in good hands during camp.  On the last day I picked up my daughter and the first thing she asked me was can I come back next year! Thank you for such a great week Nike.
