Okay. My daughter will Not. Stop. Talking. about this camp. Now she’s trying to recruit the rest of her team to go next year so they can all be involved. The coach has said she’s become a real leader to the rest in such a short time.

It was great to be with other girls who love the same thing I do. The coaches were talented and friendly and taught us a lot of new things. See you next year.
