Friendly staff!

My son had never spent time away from family. The day before camp he started getting very nervous but the staff was so friendly when we checked in that he didn't have any problem. He had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the experience.

Loved the coaches and director!

My son was 9 and at the camp and got homesick.  The coaches and director really encouraged him and he stuck out the entire camp. This was a really big deal for my son and myself and he is very proud he stay the entire time.  Did wonders for his confidence!

Thanks for a fun camp!

My son enjoyed the camp and the kids he practiced with. Good skills were taught he learned some new tricks. The food was good.  You cannot predict the weather! Despite the weather Ryan still enjoyed the camp. His one big complaint, was the long walk between the dorm, the cafeteria and the fields. The walking is ok, from a parents perspective smile! Thanks for a safe, well supervised camp!

My son had a blast and it was also the first time he had ever stayed away from home for more than one night. He can't wait to do another.

So much fun!

My son had a ball! Rained the entire time but the coaches managed to keep it going adn keep the boys engaged.  Our only complaint was that after the evening session the boys were hungry and this was after dinner.  We will bring some snacks for next year.

Awesome camp!

Our son had so much fun at the AU lax camp. He learned so much and enjoyed the comradarie with the camp counselors. Definitely would recommend going with someone you know as initially the camp seemed quite disconnected for those who weren't there with friends.  Overall the camp was a great experience and our son improved so much over the course of the days.  Awesome camp!
