    Absolutely wonderful experience!

    I just wanted to thank you for the absolutely wonderful experience my son had at camp. He is so pumped about his high school tryout. You helped him tremendously. My husband and I were very impressed with your camp and the way that it was run. We also want to tell you that your assistant coaches were so wonderful to the boys. Our son has NOT stopped talking about how much he learned and what fun it was to meet such nice guys. We even took him to see some of the colleges where your staff member played lacrosse. We just wanted to let you know how glad we were to have sent our son to your camp. You will definitely see him again. Thanks again for all of your efforts.
