Our Promise Of Camp Quality!

When your daughter attends an elite camp, you expect the quality experience that was advertised.

Expectations Camps are indeed elite camps in both name & substance. We evaulate every applicant. Individually. No athlete will be accpted unless my staff thinks she can learn, compete and succeed. We promise.

The 1:4 coach to camper ratio is unmatched in the USA. Then there's the price, the facility, the knowledge, the competition, the seminars....I could go on and on!
