    Great quality camp

    Hey Josh, I wanted to thank you again for all the tips and pointers you gave me at the New Hampshire Summer Camp. It was a fantastic experience for me to have worked with you and although you were tough on me, I enjoyed my sessions with you and actually had fun. I have seen progress in my swimming.

    Highly recommend

    I'll be recommending the UNH Nike Swim Camp to other members of my high school team. I've been a competitive swimmer for 8 years but still learned a lot.
