2023 was the first year my daughter attended Crazy 8s camp. She was a bit hesitant to go at first but by the end she didn’t want to leave. From the new friends she made to the amazing coaching staff, her personal and game related skills grew so much. She can’t wait until next year!
This was my daughters second year at the Green Bay camp. I cannot say enough great things about Jinelle and the staff. You can tell how much passion they all have for growing the game! We will certainly be back next year!
Fantastic camp to say the least!!! Jinelle Siergiej and her team were second to none. Very organized considering the amount of kids and what needed to be done. Was able to adapt on the fly which was most impressive. My granddaughter Reegan loved it, as well as her friends did, and can't wait to do it again next year. All instructors took their responsibilities to heart and did their very best communicating to the kids and showed passion in what they did. One instructor from Chicago (sorry, I do not know her name) was particularly impressive with how she communicated in a way the kids will learn and remember. All in all, the best camp I've ever experienced bad none (no matter what the sport). I watched many hours of if and never got tired of it. Great job Jinelle and team!!!
My two daughters have been to crazy eights for the last two years. They look forward to it every summer and come back so excited and focused for the next season of hockey. They often feel like they don't have as many peers who understand their love for the game but the best part of this camp is that my daughters have time with college age women who play the game they love. Janelle is amazing. She and her staff really work hard to make each girl feel valued and seen during their time at crazy 8's. The presence of a camp nurse for the week is a wonderful addition. My girls love meeting other girls who love hockey and they see what possibilities are out there for the future of the game. The hockey and off ice drills are fabulous but the whole week is really amazing. Every NYE their only question at midnight is "did you sign us up for camp?". It's become part of our tradition of ringing in the new year. We've done Green Bay and Heartland camps and they're both fantastic. Thank you to Janelle and your team. It's an amazing experience for our girls.
Thank you for everything that you did this week- like helping me when I didn’t know how to do something, the talks you gave to us about college, and the advice for moving on to the next level in hockey. Thank you most of all for making my first hockey camp one I will never forget!
I went to the crazy 8 camp, it was an experience I will never forget. We got to meet so many amazing coaches and people. I learned so much about the game and some very helpful tips that I will apply to my every day game play. They give you all the materials to get better and if you put in the effort you will get so much better. If you are looking to go to a hockey camp I would highly recommend crazy 8, it has been one of the best camps I have ever done. Thank you to all the coaches i had an amazing time.
My daughter started playing hockey last year and so we signed her up for this camp to learn some more skills and meet more players. She was homesick the first day and the staff all handled it so well. By the second day, she didn't miss us anymore and forged some great friendships! Overall, we were thrilled with what she learned, who she met, her counselors, the organization and planning. Everything was amazing! Highly recommend - and we will be back again next year!
We spent a significant amount of time researching camps and this one immediately rose to the top with it's exceptional reviews. We could not have been more pleased! This camp was a great experience for our 10 year old and the instruction and support was top notch. We were a bit nervous since this would be her first overnight camp and we had traveled across country for it. We had nothing to worry about. Nightly calls were quick because she was having so much fun with her fellow campers and counselors. She spent a significant amount of time on the ice and walked away with new skills. At the end of the camp, she didn't want to leave. We will be back for many years to come!
We spent numerous hours researching the best girl’s camps and loved the reviews for this camp. We were blown away by how amazing this camp was. It was our daughter’s first sleep away camp and she loved it. Every night she called us to tell us how much fun she was having and how much she had learned. Lots of ice time, great opportunities for bonding, and excellent instruction and guidance. We will make the cross county trip again next year for this camp!
I wish I could rate this camp higher than 5 stars. This is the most fun our daughter has had in a hockey camp since she has been skating. They do a great job on and off the ice keeping the girls moving and working hard but also ensuring they are having fun and competing! We will ABSOLUTELY be doing this camp again next year!!
This was the 2nd year my daughter attended the overnight Green Bay Camp and already can’t wait until next year! She grows at this camp socially, emotionally, and physically! We are so grateful to have a great girls camp to send our daughter to that is full of great counselors and coaches!!
It's not every day that your kid gets to be on the ice, and get mentored by Olympians! This camp is a wonderful experience for my daughter, and she cries every year when it's over.
She said that she will keep coming until she is old enough to be one of the coaches.❤️
I can’t say enough about how amazing of an experience this camp was for my daughter! I was very nervous for her to do an overnight camp because she had really only had one sleep over at a friends house prior. Not only did my daughter love it, but she absolutely thrived! She met new friends, learned a lot about hockey and had the time of her life. They have developed an atmosphere of growth, compassion and relationship building! My daughter still talks about the amazing counselors and coaches! This was an incredible experience for her growth not only in hockey but also growth as a confident, strong female.
I can not say enough great things about Crazy 8's Summer Camps. The location of the camp you chose doesn't matter, the staffing and experience for the girls are equally amazing. The balance of fun and hard work, the attitudes of the kids and staff are all amazing. We travel a fairly long distance to attend Crazy 8's and the bonding time and overall camp experience provided and all the new WI friends my girls have made, make it an entirely worthwhile camp for us.
My daughter loves this camp. She has done it several years in a row and it is something she looks forward to in the summer. This camp has been great at improving hockey skills and also self confidence.
Our 8 year old daughter was not excited about this camp at all, the night before she was like I’m not going. The ride home after the first night, she was like “it was ok”. By Friday she was almost in tears because camp was over. She absolutely loved it. Has new friendships she will have for life now, and grew in hockey skills beyond our wildest expectations. So so 100% worth the cost, and time to take your daughter to this camp. We will go back every year! Thank you to every single coach that was there, that not only showed a daughter a great time on the ice, but helped improve her hockey skills!!
This was Margo (my 11 year old daughter)'s first time at hockey camp. It was a great experience for her and she is going back for a second week in Appleton. She loved the counselors and the fact that they are all women made us very happy. The Carroll College accommodations were great. The drills and games were helpful. She made a lot of new friends. Jinelle handles this complex thing like it's simple and she makes it look easy.
Just wanted to take a minute and tell you how much my 8 year old enjoyed this camp! We drove up from Louisville, KY for her to do this. She's been going down to Nashville for their Little Preds camp for the last 2 years, and I felt that she had outgrown it. By Friday, she could barely walk...but asked me when she could come back. She said, "This was the best week of my life. Better than the Disney Cruise that Grumpa took us on!"
My oldest daughter attended for the first time this year. I'm always nervous when it comes to camps because you always wonder if you're going to get your money's worth out of it. Hands down, this camp is worth every penny. My daughter was a day camper and talked non-stop about everything she learned on ice and off all week. She loved hearing about nutrition, college opportunities, all the drills and everything in between. She's excited to think about going back next year and beyond a doubt, she'll be back with her sister in tow! I love that this isn't all cupcakes and rainbows, the coaches keep it real while encouraging each skater to get better. The J Berg girls will be back!
Great staff, very well organized, and extremely knowledgeable coaching staff!
my daughter says it was the best thing she's ever done in her life!
