my daughters really enjoyed camp
August 8, 2016: My daughters, Tara and Mira Sridharan, really enjoyed their two weeks spent at camp this summer. In particular, I wanted to acknowledge the kindness of the coaches (especially Rob and Lauren) who took care of my girls when I unexpectedly had to pick them up late.

Great balance, fantastic small group instructor
July 24, 2015: I was very pleased with Eli's experience at the camp providing a lot of great instruction on technique, mindset and the nature of the game and an athlete, but also allowed for fun and socializing. Great balance, fantastic small group instructor to campers ratio. Loved the lunches.
