    Taught My Daughter More Softball & Being A Young Lady

    "I cannot put into words the experience my daughter gained from going to the camp. She not only learned skills in softball but how to be a better young lady. The morals and values the staff brought to the camp were extraordinary. We looked at sending her to another camp and decided on the NIKE Camp for convenience and I am so glad we did. She was going to be a day camper but when we got there she saw some friends and we were able to change her to be an overnight camper. I will highly recommend this camp to anyone who is interested in gaining skills and personal growth. We look forward to next year!!"

    Lots of fun, plan on returning

    My daughter had a lot of fun and will likely be back next year. However, I will mention I felt the 11+ year old girls had more of challenge in hitting and fielding than the younger ones. I didn't see any position-focused coaching for the younger ones. My daughter is eight and I know her position may not be set in stone, but I still felt it would have helped her tremendously had they done more coaching with her at a position (allowed her to field balls, learn the position, etc.). Like I said, my daughter will likely be back next year so long as she continues to enjoy the sport. I just hope they involve her more in the challenges and not just let her watch the bigger girls.

    Couldn't ask for anything more

    Everyone was very nice and did an excellent job of taking care of my daughter. I couldn't have asked for anything more than the care they gave and the way they looked out for her. She got sick the first night and they were very attentive, went above and beyond to help take care of her and the communication was great. We will plan to be back next year.

    My daughter was really engaged at the NIKE Softball Camp at Columbus State University

    "My daughter was an overnight camper (13-14 year old group ) and is a player for local teams in our hometown. She loved the experience and wants to return next year. She was given instruction to improve her technique in throwing and hitting that she can replicate back home with her team. She loved the staff and was really engaged in the camp!"

    — Parent

    I hope to go back every year.

    "The camp was very well-planned out and had a good program. The times to wakeup eat and play were reasonable and the instructors knew exactly what they were doing and taught the campers in an easy-to-understand way. I hope to go back every year!"

    — Overnight Camper

    Another great experience.

    "The director and her staff were very positive and seemed to make all the girls love to play. This is our second time doing the camp and I would do it again. Thanks for another great experience and great memories."
