"'We loved UNA! The proximity of the housing, food, and gym were the BEST we have ever had. Being so close, allowed us to have FUN down time and practice time. The staff at UNA were quick to accommodate and overall just ``good folks``. My senior girls said, it was the best camp experience they have had. We would like to return in this summer.'"
