Thanks

My name is Chelsea. I am 12 years old and attended your camp last summer. I got very, very homesick. But your coaches helped me through the week. They took most of their time off just to be with me. So I would like to say thank you for last year, it was great of you to help me and I am now a starter and the point guard on my home school basketball team. Behn improved me that much in my skills for basketball. And I would like to tell you that I am attending again this year. So thank you for the summer of my life!

Thanks Coaches

This was my first overnight basketball camp and I loved every bit about it. All of the coaches were amazing because they weren't just your coach, they cared about you off the court too. The drill stations were hard but they were fun at the same time. The food was good because there were a lot of choices.
