We'll be back!

Looking forward for our daughter to return next summer for camp. She had an awesome experience and made some new friendships during the whole week. All the counselors seemed knowledgeable about the sport and were very nice to work with. Our daughter had a fantastic experience and it should help with her tournaments since she is interested in getting a college tennis scholarship at a college when she graduates from high school.
