My daughter had a great time meeting new friends

"My daughter had a great time meeting new friends. She said the food was great! She had so much fun that she wants to go back next summer."

Taught My Daughter More Softball & Being A Young Lady

"I cannot put into words the experience my daughter gained from going to the camp. She not only learned skills in softball but how to be a better young lady. The morals and values the staff brought to the camp were extraordinary. We looked at sending her to another camp and decided on the NIKE Camp for convenience and I am so glad we did. She was going to be a day camper but when we got there she saw some friends and we were able to change her to be an overnight camper. I will highly recommend this camp to anyone who is interested in gaining skills and personal growth. We look forward to next year!!"
