— Molly B. Parent
June 30, 2015: This was my daughter's first sleep away camp so I was very nervous on the first day when dropping her off. Right as we got to check-in the coaches were so nice and welcoming to everyone which made me feel more comfortable about having my daughter there. My daughter called me through out the camp duration and always told me how much fun she was having and how her coaches were "super cool." I always felt that my daughter was safe and well accounted for. This experience has not only been great for my daughter but for me. I am so happy I made the decision to send her to here. My daugher is sooo looking forward to next summer!
— Jordan T. Parent
Thank you Nike!

I am counting the days down until next summer!
June 26, 2015: I went to camp not knowing anyone and made some great friends. The coaches were awesome and I learned a ton of new drills that I had never been introduced to before. I am counting the days down until next summer.
