Centrally located between several National Parks (Grand Canyon, Zion, and Death Valley), St. George is a hub for outdoor activists. This camp will be hosted at the luxurious Green Valley Spa & Resort. Adjacent to the resort are two other rental sites, allowing the campers several options.

With only a couple weeks away from the Huntsmen World Senior Games, and a month away from the USAPA Nationals, these camps are ideal for those players looking to solidify their skills and techniques, or get some extra practice with a partner. The two 3-day camps will have different skill groups. The first (Oct. 3rd-5th) is designed to help the 3.0-3.5 players, while the second camp (Oct. 6th-8th) is geared for the 3.5-4.0 players.
