Great experience

The camp experience was great on many levels. The campers had enough instructiion, play time, and recovery time. The leaders trusted us and gave us free time to. The food was one of my favorite parts. Next year, I will attend the elite camp to be with players on a more competitive. I recommend it for sure.

Great camp

My daughter loved this camp. Her first text to me was, "this is great, I am hitting like I've never hit before!" She is a freshman trying out for varsity and takes the sport very seriously.

Exciting

This camp absolutely made the long trek out to the campus worth it. Every morning my roommate and I woke up excited to get to spend time with the other campers, players, and staff while playing the sport we love. The staff takes simple drills and makes them exciting, so that you never realize how hard you're working until you look at your shirt! I would definitely go back in a heartbeat and encourage everyone else to do the same!

Go every year

I have gone to the Nike volleyball camp at Dartmouth two summers in a row and I plan to go next summer as well. All aspects of the camp are great, the combined knowledge and experience of the coaching staff is remarkable, I have met many friends there with whom I still stay in touch, the food is surprisingly good, and staying at a beautiful campus like Dartmouth is such a treat! I would definitely recommend this camp to any volleyball player, of any skill level.

Personalized instruction

My daughter came to the camp as a relative beginner, and was given the skills and encouragement to be able to join her high school team. There was a great deal of personalized instruction and the coaches were caring and demanding at the same time. She had a wonderful experience.

Great coaches

The campers are divided into different levels which is nice because the more advanced campers don't feel bored and the beginner campers don't become embarrassed. It's also good that there is such a large and diverse coaching staff. What I mean by diverse is that for every position there is at least one coach who is knowledgeable and can help the players of that position. Also the range in ages of the coaches is nice because the younger ones are more carefree and bring a sense if fun to the camp while the older ones can implement control and order when needed.
