When you think about what camp to choose for your son this summer, ask
yourself these questions:
1. Do you want a tough and challenging camp for your son?
2. Is twenty-seven years of summer camp experience important to you?
3. Do you want your son to work harder than he has ever worked and have fun
while he is doing it?
4. Do you, at some point, hope that your son will be a high school player on a
great TEAM?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then this is the camp for you. We are
committed to providing a challenging and instructional experience for your son.
Every player will receive a basketball report card to evaluate his current skill level
and a camp T-shirt with the exception of the shooting camp which is instruction
only. Each session will be limited to thirty campers, enroll early; sessions fill        Build Your Own Drone                                           John Bullinger

Karate can be for everyone, no matter your physical condition. You progress
at your own pace, and it is as competitive or non-competitive as the student
would like it to be. Classes are hard work, but we do have fun, too. The main
focus of the class is practical self-defense that works. Secondarily, we teach
strength, endurance, coordination, balance, and overall mental and physical
discipline. We currently have students as young as seven and over 50. For more
