My daughter enjoyed attending your camp so much. I wish I sent her to camp earlier in the summer so I could have done multiple weeks. Thank You GameBreaker!

I had a blast at camp this summer. It was a great way to see how my skills stacked up against girls my age. I learned a lot that can take my game to the next level.
