Who Played in the
World Camp Alum...
Three members of the US National team, Melissa Gonzalez, Emily Wold and Caitlin VanSickle attended Camp when they were in high school - along with former staff member, Katie O'Donnell. That's almost a 1/3 of the team. All coached by World camp co-owner, Tjerk van Herwaarden, who was assistant coach with our National team at the World Cup in Holland. They played GREAT!
You Said It...
Fairfax High has attended World Camp for the past 3 years at Swarthmore and the girls continue to rave about the program and the quality of the coaches. It's been the best reviewed camp I've had them go to in 13 years of coaching.

World Camp USA was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. I learned so much, in four days. It was such a happy environment, and the staff was amazing. I wish I didn't have to leave today, and wish I could go back every year. It was an amazing opportunity that I was able to go this year, and it was the best time of my life. Thank you World Camp USA; Coach Steve, Wally, LG, Jopie, Judge, LuLu, Gurt, Bjourn, Arnie, Rein, Bart, and Becca.

I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you and your staff for putting on an awesome camp for my girls. I heard from each class throughout the camp and everyone had rave reviews - from the instruction to the tournament play, to the coaches, and the theme nights. It was by far their favorite camp in years.
I heard my senior group did very well, making it all the way to the final game where they lost a tough one by a goal.
I can't say enough - it's a great feeling knowing your girls are coming home prepared, pumped and excited for season to begin in a week. Thanks for all you do and for putting on an outstanding camp. I hope my girls were courteous, respectful and followed the rules! :)
