    July 29, 2022: This was my daughter's first time staying away from home and she completely embraced the experience. I have heard countless stories of all the fun, shared laughs, and competitions. She loved being able to interact with coaches and players. She even managed to win a few of the competitions. Overall the camp was a great experience not only on the court but off.
