I dropped my daughter off at camp this summer and she had a great time. I can\'t wait to tell all of the other parents about this camp!

reviews-10 Beth G. - Parent

Our daughters had a great experience at this camp. Being different ages I was worried about the level of instruction they would receive. Your staff did an excellent job of putting them into groups that challenged them but did not frustrate them. Both of them ended up clearly improving their skill level during the week while having so much fun.

My daughter had such a great time at camp this summer. Her coach back home has already noticed a significant improvement in her game.
