July 8, 2023: I loved the personalization to each kid (e.g. each player won an award specific to their strengths); that kids had short piece of homework each night (great, smart questions to ask this age), that the camp and coaches were all high energy, friendly and kept things fun. Also important, we loved that our camper got personalized written feedback at the end. Walking out with an evaluation in hand really helps displace the focus from just being on the awards. I thought staff handled that well. Plus a little swag at the end too. My kiddo loved the lunches too! He's a big eater and that made his day all the more fun. I hope couch Lou will be back in Madison/Middleton next summer for sure!
July 11, 2022: My daughter loved it, I feel it was the right balance between fun and structured learning. I was also pleasantly surprised by the written work she brought home. I'm glad they worked some on the mind aspect of sport/life as well as the physical game.
