We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Absolutely going next year
It's sort of nice to keep places like this our own "little secret" but, I have repeatedly told friends and family how wonderful of a time my 2 kids had during soccer camp! My son has been twice and now my older daughter once. They absolutely plan on going next year. They loved meeting kids from all over the world too. Great job!!
Nike soccer camp is great, the coaches and campers are so welcoming and kind. I always have a blast in practice and out. I have been going for four years now and I and hoping to come every summer coming up! I Highlanders recommended this camp to everyone.
Look forward to going back
This is the second year we have done the Nike Soccer Camps. The coaches are great and provide good competitive play. The Athletic Trainer is also fantastic at communicating and taking care of any injuries. In addition, the director of the camp was very involved in the daily activities. He made a point to personally seek me out as a parent to discuss future options for my son and his observations. My son is looking forward to going back next year and trying the overnight camp as well. We recommended this camp to two friends that joined this year and both were very happy with the program as well.
Made new friends
I highly recommend this camp for players of all skill levels. The staff is great, I learned a lot, and made a lot of new friends from around the world.
Overall great camp
The camp offers great instruction, good food, air condition dorms, and overall a great camp. Perfect amount of free time as well.
The accommodations and food were appealing to my child. The exposure to children from all over the world is a great experience.
The campus was great; the soccer play/skills was just enough coupled with swimming and free time. The staff was very helpful and the camp was very organized and affordable.
Campers from all over the world
My daughter enjoyed the fact that the campers were from all over the world. The chemistry between the kids was great.
My daughter really enjoyed the soccer camp. She definitely wants to go again next summer and even though we live close by, she wants to do the overnight camp. Her skills improved, her confidence improved and she really like interacting with campers from all over the world with different skill levels.
This camp is awesome. A very rigorous and exciting training course as well as great food and fun activities to enjoy off the pitch. I recommend this camp to everyone.
Learned a lot
My daughter Hannah attended the Nike Soccer and Tennis Camps for the past two years. She loves this camp! She made so many friends from different countries, loved her counselors, and learned a lot of soccer and tennis. We highly recommend this camp.
What a great camp! My daughter has made lots of international friends. Her experiences at the camp, both soccer and friendships, will be remembered throughout her life.
I learned a lot and the learning was both fun and intense. I met other kids from around the world and that was amazing.
This has been our son's third year attending the Nike Soccer Camp and he still always talks about next year when he goes back to Nike Soccer Camp...The instruction is great and the counselors make him feel like he is special. They all know his name and remember him from the previous year.
Can't wait to come back
I had a great time at Nike Soccer camp. I learned a lot of skills that will help me when I play on my travel team. My coaches were great and I made a lot of friends too. I can't wait to come back next year!
Truly memorable experience
My daughter, Molli Fellows decided to attend camp alone. I thought at 16 it was great that she would want to go not knowing anyone. She truly had a memorable experience. She met campers and coaches from all over the world and felt that though she was the oldest one at soccer camp, she was pushed to learn and improve her skills. The experience was definitely worth the cost.
Better splits based on ability
Better splits based on ability. There was a total mix of kids in the group, several of whom had little to no experience and a few of whom who, like my daughter, play seriously on several teams.
Needs better evaluation system
Of the times my kids have attended, I'd say more often than not their evals were completed by someone who clearly didn't know my kids or was very rushed (with one exception I can think of).
Came back more matured
My son had an excellent time at the camp. He came from Europe and met someextraordinary people. He improved his skills quite significantly and also his physical resistance. From the human aspect, he came back more matured and the first thing he said at the airport was he wanted to come back next year. Excellent result!
A wonderful experience, my children loved Nike soccer camp, one week turned into two! They both learned about their sport made new friends from all around the world, overall they enjoyed every part of camp. The staff the kids all GREAT! They are looking forward to returning next year. Outstanding camp!
This camp is great! I pushed myself and set the bar! My touch got better and I was able to work on my speed. Great experience too! I loved meeting all the different people.
Make camp more affordable
I had 2 kids there for one week. I would love to see the price come down to be more affordable for either a 2 kids special price...or make it affordable to have them go for 2 weeks. They just love being there.
