Camper Reviews

  • 4/5.

The coaches were great and I made a lot of new friends. I really want to come back again next year and maybe for more than one week if they offer that.

  • 5/5.

I just wanted to let you know that I got the nicest note about camp from one of my players. I emailed to ask him how it was, and he seemed so happy. Aside from winning the camp cup, which made his week, he just had a great time. He learned  a lot, and he gained a lot of confidence, which he was lacking before. If he wasn't already doing so, I think he's "drinking the ultimate Kool-Aid" now. 

Thanks again.
