"I'll be sure to come back this summer! I learned a lot from your camps! Pretty much has taught me everything I know so far."
This is from a girl who came to both Expectations Camps one summer.  Then didn't come to either the next. 

"The High Expectations Camp was the best camp that I have been involved with - the end of camp tournament was a true 'tournament' feel with excellent play - the girls showed vast improvement. I hope to see the same again."
Barry Kane, host of 2011, 2012 and 2013 High and Maximum Expectations Camps.
