Testimonials from Camp

"'UCA summer camp at UAB was awesome! Everything from the experienced UCA staff to the UAB facilities were great. The UCA staff went above and beyond to help our squad get the most out of our camp experience. And as for the facilities, the girls loved the dorm as well as its’ proximity to the gym and dining. We will definitely be returning to UCA at UAB.'" Coach DeanaFayette County High School
