I had such a great time at camp this year. Each time I go it gets better and better. This time we had a movie night and made popcorn. It was a nice bonding experience for all of us.

My son Andrew had such a great time at camp this year. Him and his roommate ended up becoming really good friends on and off the field. They are already planning attending camp next year.
