    dream come true

    6/30/2017 - My son's dream has been to play on the UA courts, especially indoor. He was literally in heaven and had the best time. He loved meeting friends that have the same passion for the game that he does. He also loved playing all day long everyday!!! He definitely plans to come back next summer.

    camp was perfect

    6/26/2015 - Everything about the camp was perfect. I had so much fun and I think it really helped improve my game. Even though I am a senior this year, I would love to come back next year with the younger girls on our team so they can have the opportunity to enjoy this experience.

    — Mallory M. - Camper

    • 5/5.
    would love to have multiple weeks

    6/26/2015 - Would love to have multiple weeks spaced out in the summer. Would like camp to last an entire week - Sunday to Friday or Saturday. Also, would like day campers to be able to spend time with overnight campers at Burke in the evenings or during downtime. Would be more fun for the kids - especially teenagers.

    — Christopher B. - Parent

    camp should run saturday to sunday

    6/25/2015 - I believe the camp should run Sunday to Saturday. It is very hard to take a day off work and drive to Tuscaloosa when it could be done on a Saturday or Sunday early morning. That was the only issue I had. The camp ending on a Thursday in the middle of the day was a little ridiculous. My son loved the camp and had a blast.
