We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Coach Henry and staff are positive role models.
June 14, 2016: Coach Henry and his entire staff, regardless of age, reflected the positive reinforcement that is too often lost in modern youth athletics. My son came home reinvigorated and prepared for increased training.
— Amy M. Parent
My kids favorite camp.
June 14, 2016: Both of my kids said this was their favorite camp they have ever been to. Thanks.
— John C. Parent
My son learned something new every day.
June 17, 2016: My son was hesitant to go because he felt that he wouldn't learn anything. I asked him every day what he did at camp. He told me play-by-play and every day, there would be part of his story where he would say, "...and I learned..." I'm thankful we signed him up and he learned a few things that he will use as long as he decides to incorporate athletics in his life.
— Leondra D. Parent
