Loved the experience

I had 2 younger boys attend camp - they loved their experience and want to attend a couple weeks next year and do the overnight. I was happy with check-in/check out process (easy), friendly coaches, great facility, camp store was fun for the boys with easy credit process for boys to gets snacks each day, providing lunch was great, they liked the format of practicing skills and am games each week, and camp hours worked well for a working mom.

Talented Staff

We appreciated the incredibly talented staff (coaches, atc, counselors) and their insights into our kids play. The feedback form was helpful for my older player.

  • 3/5.

My daughter did not enjoy the first two days - she was 11 and put with the younger kids - no challenge at all. Much better when she moved up though the added cost was a bit over the top.
