Awesome camp!

Our son had so much fun at the AU lax camp. He learned so much and enjoyed the comradarie with the camp counselors. Definitely would recommend going with someone you know as initially the camp seemed quite disconnected for those who weren't there with friends.  Overall the camp was a great experience and our son improved so much over the course of the days. Awesome camp!
