Headfirst Camp is the
best camp program our son has attended. The sports programs are great, the counselors are very attentive, and we were very impressed with the daily lessons on sportsmanship and leadership... and the daily emails to the parents!Laura Mulreany
Thank you for the best week of the summer, according to my 7 year old son! He loved every minute, and you all made him feel such a part of this amazing experience. He gained confidence and was so happy all week. I will be recommending this camp to all our friends!Dawn Schnell
Headfirst Camps are the
best camps in our area. The coaches motivate my children to listen and learn the concepts of being part of a team. They have so much fun. This is our second summer with Headfirst and we will definitely be back again
next year.Sarah Hahn
Headfirst Camps far exceeded our expectations. I was impressed by everything from the morning greetings when we arrived, to the fantastic facilities, to the warm and accessible counselors. I will definitely sign up my child for Headfirst Camps again in the future.Laura Manatos
My sons have been attending Headfirst Summer Camps for three summers now, and they absolutely love them! They always come home with smiles and great stories about their day. Thank you for providing such a fun, safe and positive summer experience for my kids year after year! Missy Cook
