CAMP HISTORY  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.

Our 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, Andy Martin; Cass, Clarissa Bagwell; Pope, Fred Wheeler;  McEachern & Hillgrove, Sheryl Fowler; Gainesville, Manson Hill Brenda Hill Gilmore; North Atlanta, Kathleen Washington; Roswell, Lesley Broadwell; GMC, John Griffin; Chattooga, Ron Roach; Madison County, Julie Phillips; West Hall, Lynn Jarrett; Dawson Co., Steve Sweat; Woodstock, Julie Crowe; Flowery Branch, Hazel Hall; Brooks, AL, Kevin Creekmore; Johnson-Gainesville, Ron Smith; Heritage-Newnan, Simon Dupree and Judith Griffith; Hephzibah, Wendell Lofton; Dodge County, Dick Kelly; Armuchee, Bill Thornton; Bowdon, Dennis Phagan; Central Gwinnett, Cass Cassell; Paulding County, Nancy Waldrep; Mt.
