    We'll be back!

    From the time we walked in the door it was very obvious that things were organized, and planned, and the staff/coaches were ready to go! Coming from bad experiences with coaches in the past, this was very reassuring, and when I left I was not worried about my son. He had a great time and we will be back next year! Thank you!

    Great Staff!

    My son broke his wrist on the second day of camp. The staff were very helpful with the situation. Got me into a doctor's office quickly and easily. My son still attended the camp and was able to participate cautiously. Again, the staff were extremely helpful and took great care of him.
