Formerly held at Brenau University
In our 45th summer of camp, we take pride in being the original
camp in Georgia to combine the team and fundamentals concept.
Many camps have developed during the past 15-20 years using our
system. The concept has proven to be successful and popular
with players and coaches since 1976. While we have maintained
low camp fees we have continued to grow. The outstanding group
of coaches who have been members of our staff, plus players and
attending coaches have helped accomplish this.
objective is to keep the enrollment of campers and teams at a
size that can meet the needs of the team without losing sight of
the individual participant.
After reviewing many other camp brochures, statements like “most
competitive camp play in the nation,” “best camp in the state,”
etc., appear on many of them. The Number-One camp promises only
that we will provide essentially the same or better experience
while costing less than most.
Many Varsity and JV teams that have attended previous camps have
experienced successful seasons. Examples: Forsyth Central,
