The Ridgefield Academy camp was a great learning experience. I picked up many new techniques. Can\'t wait to come back next year.

My son loved all of the coaches. I think they’ve really challenged him, which is what he wanted! Ever since the end of camp he’s been practicing the new skills he’s learned. He also said he could’ve stayed longer if they offered!
