My kids are crazy about this camp. We look forward to it every year. It's a terrific way to make friends, work on skills and learn about competition and teamwork.

Coach Macedo's philosophy of the sport really comes through to the kids. This camp is one of our favorite things about summer!

Miscellaneous Information

What if I have to cancel a camp?  We do not offer refunds on cancelled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called "Cancellation Protection". We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date. Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.



There will be a running snack bar with water, Gatorade, snacks, and candy for purchase. Campers will have the option to purchase pizza for lunch each day or bring their own lunch. Also, there will be a water and Gatorade station set up in the gym for drinks free of charge.


Please check your email regularly as this is our primary way we communicate. Any additional information that we need to convey as the camp draws closer will be passed on to you via the e-mail address that you supplied when you signed up for camp.
