nterviews from the dining hall:
Rhett Sheibley
, Northern H.S.-"The basketball is great, but the ice cream alone is worth the price of the camp."
Cody McDonald, Northern H.S.- "The french fries are better than McDonald's!"
Coach Mark Risser, Annville-Cleona-"The sauce made the nuggets!"
Coach Tom Prystal, Prystal Scouting Service-"in the camps I have seen this summer, the kids seem to perform better when they are well fed, and this camp does the job!"
Andrew Clark, Hempfield-"The pasta is great.  You can even get many different flavors of ice cream!"
Adam Williams, Hempfield- "I love the pasta because of the chunky sauce, and the ice cream because you can make your own sundae!" 
Rod Froth, Oswego- "I used the salad bar every day with my meal. My mom told me to remember my vegetables."
Coach Phay Vaughn, Harrisburg- "I never miss breakfast at camp.  I like the scrambled eggs and the pancakes."
The bottom line:
this past summer, we had reports of some camps which had only one entree and allowed only one helping. Those camps offered peanut butter and jelly if campers were still hungry. At our camp, there were at least three entrees at each meal, unlimited helpings, a salad bar, a desert bar, and an ice cream bar.  Both the coaches and the campers loved the food!  It's been that way every year at Alvernia College and it will stay that way!!

Scouting Report on Wednesday Aug 1 

Tonight,  it was the "night of guards" in both the NCAA & NIT divisions. Top point guard in the NCAA division Austin Lawrence made several penetrating moves to the basket which resulted in scores by him or dish offs to his teammates for baskets. Austin also poped in 5 3pointers. Playing on the other team against Austin was slick & smooth moving Kasim McCleod, who also pumped in 4 3 pointers along with several scoring power drives to the hoop. Tray Blanding teamed up with Lawrence in duo manuevers that overpowered their opposition. Brandon Artman  chipped in with 2 3 pointers and some strong penetrating moves to the basket.          In the NIT division strong driving & scoring was provided Cody McDonald, Kurt Laird & Kevin Antol.  Brady Myers complemented the guards play with his tough post play and all around defensive performance.   

you get to keep your camp jersey!
On the last day of camp, Nathan Balmer (Manheim Central) ask where he should turn in his camp jersey. Some camps require campers to pay for their jersey if they want to keep it. He was happy to learn that at the PA/MD Camp, you get to keep your jersey for free!
