Location Tips

  • This is a skill and stunt based camp. It is fast paced and high energy. – Tucker
  • We have a 1:1 ratio, meaning your team has their own buddy and even more time to work one on one with an instructor. It allows the team and coach to work closely with their buddy to set expectations and achieve them by the end of camp! – Dylan
  • Camp fills fast, sign up early! – Carrie
  • No evaluations or competitions during camp. Come ready to learn and progress at your team’s pace. This camp is compatible to any level. – Lexi
