    Definitely recommend this great camp to anyone

    My daughter had a blast! She made new friends with the other campers and the counselors. She enjoyed the food and spending the overnights. It was perfect for a high school freshman to get a taste of college life and being on a college level softball team. I would recommend this camp to anyone who has a daughter who loves softball! A+++ for sure. So sad she cannot attend next year, due to her age. Thank you!

    Improved and made new friends

    Great overall experience for our daughter

    Highlights included scrimmages, meeting LHU softball players and coaches, learning new skills and getting tips from the staff and making new friends. My only suggestion is to change the way the awards and individual certificates are handed out at the end of camp. It was difficult for parents to hear and it would be nice if one player was recognized at a time, if possible. Thanks for everything! It was a great experience for her

    Creative Drills

    "My daughter came home from camp telling us about all these new drills she learned. These drills were creative and helped her learn  the correct techniques. We will definitely be sending her back to this camp next year."

    NIKE Camp was Amazing!

    "The NIKE camp was AMAZING! The camp far exceeded our expectations and I will recommend several of the conditioning drills to my Varsity coach so my High School team can benefit from them as well. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING EXPERIENCE!"

    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!"

    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!!"

    See You Next Year!

    "I had a great experience, I changed after the first day from a day camper to extended day. I didn't want to miss any instructional time. I plan on attending next year and I hope to bring some more players too!"
