After attending this camp I feel a lot more confident in my ability. The coaches kept reinforcing to have confidence in what you do even if the results are not always positive. That was one of the biggest takeaways I got from camp.

I would recommend this camp for anyone who wants their son to learn from the best. The coaches at camp were great. Thank you GameBreaker.

reviews-10 Ari S. - Camper

Compared to the other camps I’ve been to, this was the best one so far. I learned a lot of new things and also had a blast. The food was great and staying in the dorms was also pretty cool.
