  • He had an absolute blast at camp so thank you a ton!  He will definitely be back next year!  KW- St Louis Park

  • My daughter loved the camp. She already wants me to sign her up for next summer! And she wishes it was 2 weeks long KH  SLP

  • My son said he had a blast! I am sure that we will be signing up for another camp next year.  Brian - St Louis Park

  • I want to thank you for the great camp in St. Louis Park. My son was extremely lucky to have a legendary coach and great mentor helping him improve his hockey skills and better understand hockey spirit.  He had lots of fun and will continue to play hockey in the future. As a parent, I deeply appreciate the time and effort you have devoted to the kids as a role model and game-changer of their lives and probably future hockey career.

    A hockey mom


    I wanted to reach out to you and let you know how much my son  enjoyed camp this week. He came home every single day excited to go back. All the coaches, especially Kelvin, were so good to him. He told us this afternoon that he will absolutely be back next year.         MH – Woodbury

  • He is having a blast this week!  Exhausted but a blast!   RK Lakeville 
  • Both of my sons attended the Woodbury U12 camp for the last two years; they loved the camp and the instruction they received.  We saw a definite improvement in both skills and confidence on the ice.  Having a former NHL player and guest NHL player discuss and answer questions about hockey preparation, training, nutrition,  and the benefits of playing other sports, was very useful for the kids.  We plan to make the trip from Maryland again to attend the U14 and U12 camp again.               Thanks,  Steve
  • Our son Sam (goalie) loved this camp last summer.  Beth
  • Our son Evan had a great time last summer at the Wes Walz hockey school and would really like to do it again.      Mike
