Fees can be paid in cash or through Donors Choose Project. All donations through the Donors Choose Project are currently doubled and go toward prizes for the camp.

“Each summer we ask the high school players to help mentor and coach at our youth summer camp, and nearly all of the team happily participates,” Hnthorn said. “We offer camps for both girls and boys entering grades 1-8. Each summer, we hold sessions that offer exercise, skill-building, competition, and confidence to approximately 150 students in our small community.”

Hinthorn said the camps are not only a great bonding experience for the high school teams, but it's a way to raise a little bit of money for team camps, uniforms, traveling expenses, and other costs that occur throughout the season.
