I highly recommend Level Up camps! I have taken 2 so far and they do not dissappoint. They go the extra mile to do before and after videos and then followup with one on one reviews for improvement. The camp also offers playbooks to take home of what you have learned during the week so you don’t forget. Both camp experiences were super fun and friendships were formed with great people. In addition to camps I took a private lesson from one of their pros Justin Umbs. He was an absolute joy to work with. In the short amount of time we worked together he improved my game and increased my confidence. He is definitely worthy of 5 stars. Professional, personal, friendly, informative and all around great guy. Thank you Level up for being a great asset for improving one’s game.
