    Supportive and compassionate leaders

    June 22, 2018: My child was not feeling well so did not get much out of the camp as we would have hoped. Had she been feeling better this camp would have been an awesome experience. Well run, knowledgeable experts, very supportive and compassionate leaders running the camp.

    Absolutely loved it

    June 23, 2018: Mitchell absolutely loved it. I personally think the cost is high for 3 and a half days. I think you would have more campers if it was 4 full days.

    July 29, 2016: My daughter had a fantastic time, she is 11 years old. We sent her for the 3 day program, she wasn't sure if she wanted to do it, so we picked the minimum amount of days. She LOVED it!! She can't wait to go back and wants to go for 5 days next year.

    Disappointed with closing ceremony

    July 31, 2017: He was a bit disappointed at the end of camp when the coaches had several sentences of improvements and personal skills they enjoyed from each child, when it was his turn they only called his name. I was at the ceremony and I could see the disappointment in his face as well as over hearing comments from another parent in the stands "they must not have liked that kid". I turned to give her my protective parent stare and then she apologized. I would have been mortified if Sam had heard that comment.

    great organization, enthusiasm, and fun

    6/23/2013 - Kathy and Paul, Thank you so much for your great organization, enthusiasm, and fun over this past week. I was a bit worried about how it would work out given that it was so far away from us. But, it worked out beautifully! Our kids are happy (and tired) and this will leave lasting memories. What else can you ask for? You did a really really really nice job. I wish you all the best in whatever else you do this summer. Take care and thanks again.

    thank you again for the great time

    7/10/2012 - Hi Paul, Just a short note to thank you again for the great time Chris had at your camp. I don't know what you all did at camp, but he came back refreshed and won four singles matches and made the semis of doubles at the Level 3 Regional Segment in Austin.
