Summer Camp Olympic Skills with Megan Bozek is open

Hey all,

Just wanted to let you all know that registration for summer camp Olympic Skills with Megan Bozek is live.  To my understanding there are limited spots available so first come first serve.  This is not just for Lightning ladies but for all girls who are interested so make sure parents know that it will fill up rather quick.  

 

Camp will run Aug 3-7 2015 at RCI.  There is a full day and a half day option (although it looks like there is a typo on the half day option.  I believe half day campers check out at 12:30.)  There will also be a goalie camp as well.

 

Here is the link http://www.proambitions.com/schedules_nc.htm
