1) I learned at camp, you want to improve your playing at the PEAK of your ability, not the lowpoint. 2) The camp is a only a weekend long, but it is a good price if you can't afford $600 camps.All in all, this camp was a great experience (the independence is great, too), and I would go again

Review for July 7 camp in Atlanta, GA; Lundy has other camps in SC; and NC

2 My son has gone to Lundy for 3 summers. The fear of that camp has kept him training through June. He knows that if he slacks off at all he will NEVER make it through the week. And he is in keeper camp where they don't run as much. This is definitely a tough camp and should not be entered lightly...

717-285-7474 1 1) Great tips for improving technical skills, good coach to player ratio
2) Where to move to support the ball, lean forward while juggling
3) None

1)The food is really good. 2). I have developed more discipline in my game and I've learned many valuable tactics from all the international coaches. 3).I don't think the camp really needs to improve ... I've been to this camp for four years.

4 1) Nice dorms.
2) Learned nothing--not enough skills, too many games; camp started Wed pm and was over Sunday noon--not enough time for the money.
3) The University put too many restrictions on the camp--get housing closer to the fields and the cafeteria; need a place to fool around near the dorm to juggle the ball and play games; my counselor swore a lot; one day we played on astro turf and it got so hot, a ball popped!

2 My sons(11 and 15) described the training as "babyish." They hated the uniforms they were forced to wear (they kept losing their socks). They left after three days.
