Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
This camp was excellent and helped improve her skills!
August 03, 2018: My daughter had a fantastic experience at camp. Not only were the drills challenging enough for her age level but they also helped build confidence. She was sad when camp ended. Jaime was organized, friendly and very encouraging to the kids while also working to build their skills and develop new skills.
