Amelia's improvement was because of Camp All-Star!

“This soccer season Amelia has really turned her travel team soccer game up to the next level. There is marked improvement in her skill level, and it has been noticed not just by me but also by her coaches and teammates.

Excited to return

I loved Camp All Star because in addition to focusing on my major sport, ice hockey, I also was able to develop my skills in a few other sports.  I had fun meeting kids from all over the world who all loved sports as much as I do!  I am excited to return this summer.

Our daughter had her camping dreams come true at Camp All-Star!

“Our daughter had her camping dreams come true at Camp All-Star! She stretched physically and socially, with intelligent and compassionate support all the way! The food was good, too!”

Family of Kyle K. - Age 15 - Miami, FL

  • 5/5.
I would say you accomplished everything that your mission statement states and more.

“I could fill this whole page with “thank you” and even then it would not convey all my gratitude. Kyle came home from camp again this year so happy. He had a great time. He came home a little taller and more confident! Last year, Kyle played lacrosse for the first time at camp. This year he went out for the sport at school. I would say you accomplished everything that your mission statement states and more. Above all, you made him feel special.”

Family of George S. - Age 12 - Atlanta, GA

Congratulations!

“The best thing I noticed when I visited Camp All-Star and watched my son play various sports was the supportive atmosphere that the other kids created cheering one another along. It was there for all players – the stars and the beginners. I think this reflects the spirit encouraged by the Director and Staff! Congratulations!”
