Keep Up The Good Work
Wonderful camp, great flexibility, awesome coaches that really do care and are experienced and helpful. Keep up the good work! Best three things done well are 1) appropriate social downtime (time to ask coaches questions and make new friends) 2) great location to lead older boys and girls to a good college with rugby opportunities 3) awesome training session structure (stations on specific skills to cater to individuality and good overall core skill building).

Friendly and Welcoming
All the campers and staff were friendly and welcoming. The kids were given freedom to do their own thing during free time.
