Testimonials

Barb, Corey, coaches and counselors all do a great job at girl power hockey camp! Our daughter Amelia will be attending her second year there this summer and has been talking about since she left last year. The staff work the girls hard but there is a lot of play time as well. Amelia really enjoyed the shopping trip last year and meeting a lot of new friends in the dorm. Amelia’s confidence has grown since camp. She has gotten much stronger with stick handling and shooting, especially making sure she keeps her head up and shooting while skating. We really look forward to seeing the skills she takes away from camp this year. Wade and Missy Mulroy

Girl Power Camp is so fun, meeting new friends, the daily adventures and working on new skills. I loved working with female coaches who have played hockey in college and the Olympics. Seeing what is achievable is a great motivator!
