Please read what parents have to say about the Summer Camps at UNCP……

“I would like to thank you for the sports camp put on by your staff this summer.  My children really enjoyed it and came home every day exhausted from a full day of games.  The variety and exposure to different games kept my kids interested and give them ideas and skills to use in the future.  They even bragged about how great the lunch was every day in the cafeteria.  It was definitely worth the price and hope you will extend it to 13 year olds next year so we can come back!”

 Thanks again from the Godwin family!
