Testimonials from Camp

"'I love the intensity of NDA summer camp. It always pushes my girls and in the end, they are so proud of themselves and I am so proud of them. I love the team building that begins right when we get to camp and then continues throughout the year. We absolutely LOVED the improvisation session that our head instructor did in place of a cool down one evening. Overall, we really love NDA camp at NWU!'" Coach AngieScottsbluff High School
"'Our team buddy was amazing! She did a great job during custom coaching helping our team clean. She was also very upbeat and positive without being patronizing. She genuinely seemed to care (it didn't seem like a job to her).'" Coach LisaWestside High School
"'The team time at this camp was great! Our buddy was the perfect mix of positivity and push with our girls. Very professional and detailed with the girls in both custom coaching and team time!'" Coach AmyNewton High School
