Erin had a great time at the Max Camp and was grateful for the opportunity to go. The amount of coaching experience and knowledge combined at this camp was awesome! Kudos to Coach Willis for his exceptional motivation and encouragement! I heard the food was very good as well as the accommodations for the overnight campers.
