Location Tips

  • Watching the athletes ‘get it’ and push themselves in Master Classes was a great reminder why I love this job as a NDA Instructor. – Kelly
  • It’s great staying in a hotel compared to a dorm. The facilities to teach in are amazing and conveniently close to food and your room! Both camp types are great and I’m sure it’s nice to have options at this great location. – Danielle
