Summer Camps

“This is just a quick note to THANK YOU for welcoming my girls to be part of this great experience at DUSC Soccer Camp. I have to say that whatever you are doing at camp is awesome, you really create an environment where kids can come to have fun, learn the game, make friends, express themselves (eg. Talent show and more), be competitive, love the game, team building skills, etc.  I see all these in my girls and I bet lots of kids have the same impact.  For my girls to get up early every morning without complaints it really tells how much they love to be part of DUSC camp. They always looking forward to get back the next day regardless of how tired they are and with a happy face. Please extend this THANKS to all coaches and counsellors that are part of this camp. Enjoy the rest of the summer!”
