Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
This camp is the best camp I have ever been to. This year was my third year attending it, and the coaches and entire staff are amazing. Everything is very organized, and the staff works hard to make sure the camp is a fun place to be with good energy all around. It's an amazing environment to be in- having a large majority of the campers and coaches come from all over the world to play the sports they love. There is a great balence as well between sport instruction and play, and down time. I have met so many wonderful people at this camp that I still keep in touch with today! So glad I discovered Nike volleyball camps! Can't wait to come next year.

I wish I stayed longer
You have to do this camp! The sessions are a super good workout and keep you in tip top shape for the week and the instruction is fantastic. The way they have it set up worked really well depending on your skill level. Also the people I met were amazing!!! I wish I could have stayed for the rest of the summer

Great learning experience
My daughter was a beginning player and didn't know anyone at camp. The coaches and counselors at camp were welcoming and made the week a great learning experience as well as a lot of fun.

Great experience for a 1st time camper!
This summer was my daughter's first volleyball training at the Nike camp (Milton, MA location). She was very nervous at first and didn't know what to expect but the staffs at camp made it very easy for her to adapt. Registration was well organized. Instructions around the campus was super informative. The staffs were welcoming and helpful. The coaches were knowledgeable and professional. The facility was clean with AC equipped. She learned great skills and formed valuable friendship with kids from many parts of the country and the world. My daughter had the best experience at the Nike camp and is already planning to come back for a longer period of time next summer. She is recommending it to her friends and everyone we know. Thank you for what you do to provide these kids great experience and training. Please keep up the great work.

Helped my technique
Overall this camp was great, I made lots of fiends from all over the world that I now keep in touch with and talk to all of them over social media or texting. This camp really helped me with technique since I am only a beginner!
— Camper '14
The training sessions are very informative, fun, and action-packed!
— Camper '14
I think it was a great camp. She learned a lot. My daughter was having such a good time, she called and asked if I would pay for another week. The staff was very helpful with this, so we let her stay. I felt very comfortable at check in that they had everything under control and covered. She met some great people that I believe she will be keeping in touch with for years to come.
— Parent of a Camper
This camp was really exceptional. The coaches were really good at teaching, the councelers in the buildings were extreamly nice and would always help you out with a problem. You become very comfortable at camp and it is interesting to meet people from all over the world. It is a great experience to have and i am very happy that I did this camp. I improved with my volleyball skills and my people skills. Meeting all these new people makes camp that more interesting.
Step up your game
The Nike Volleyball camp pushed me to improve. I was tired, sweaty, and sometimes a little frustrated but the effort was worth the gain in the end. I feel like I improved a ton and am excited to return next summer. Nike camps help you step up your game, and give you a fun experience at the same time.
Safe and fun
A safe, fun and challenging experience!

Improve and make great friends
Nike sports camp is a great place to learn more about your sport but to also make great friends and have a great time at camp. Its not just sports because the evenings are saved for going out and bonding with other people from your sport and from other sports. The coaches are amazing and nice but also really help you with your skill. I highly recommend the camp to anyone thinking about going.
Good food, good coaches, nice facility, good offer of activities, good times!
"This camp was a tremendous experience for my daughter. It taught her what she needed to know to be confident at school try-outs and in put-of-school club play. She learned a lot and was able to put what she learned into play right away. Overall it was a great experience for her!!"
— Parent of a Camper
As good as you can get
"We loved the atmosphere and kids from all over. The kids managed to share stories about their lives, countries etc and really came home enriched. It was as good as you can get. The instrucors were aware, professional and caring. We loved it and will continue to go back."
