    Camp was very informative

    "Camp at Embry Riddle with Coach Gilich, Coach Wente and Coach Kipper proved to be very informative. I not only learned physical tools, but also the mental tools needed to become a successful player.

    We have three boys and will definitely be returning!

    "My child was one of the younger kids and we were SO impressed with the way the instructors encouraged them and also encouraged the older kids to show good sportsmanship toward the younger ones. The camp was WONDERFUL. We are locals but I can't imagine sending my son to any other big campus camp that would measure up to this one! We have three young boys and will definitely be returning customers!!!"
