Saw improvement

My two daughters, who have had some volleyball experience through park and rec programs, both really enjoyed the camp, and felt their serving and setting skills really improved during the course of the week. And, they both had a great time at the camp in general.

Focused on skills

I wouldn't recommend it to friends unless they knew it was strictly about skills. Most of my friends are like me in that they value being part of a team.

Perfect instruction

I highly recommend this camp! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Perfect instruction for my beginner level daughter. Also, it is nice for the beginner students to see the more "advanced" in action for inspiration!

Knowledgeable staff

This camp is well organized with a knowledgeable staff. Campers are not grouped by age they are grouped by ability, which makes for a more positive experience.
