Testimonials from Camp

"'CofC camp is awesome! The location is perfect. It's located directly in downtown beautiful Historic Charleston! The gym facilities are very close to the dining and residence halls. There is plenty of parking for parents and friends for the last day of camp festivities. The staff are amazing and UCA tailors the program to what the coaches want to get out of camp! The coaches meetings are informative and the staff ask for coaches input. I have been coaching for 8 years and we have been attending CofC camp every year!'" Coach MelissaWest Ashley High School
