    July 13, 2023: Skills learned and my daughter is 11 years old and this was her first camp, and she came home with newly learned skills, confidence, new friendships and valuable experiences! She had nothing but positive feedback and can't wait to return next summer. I sincerely thank all of the staff that touched my little girls life this week!

    July 14, 2022: The highlight was the way the coaches interacted with the kids. That makes or breaks a camp. Their ability to get the kids excited and get them to work hard is paramount to any camp!
