The best part about camp was that I made some friends that I will keep in touch with for a ling time. The camp was a lot of fun and the coaches taught me a lot of good tips.

After the first day of camp my daughter was already asking if she could come back next year. I believe the coaches provided great instruction and were honest in their evaluations. My daughter is continuing to practice what they recommended. Thanks.
