There are a ton of campers (over 100) and not a commensurate number of courts so you donít get enough games. I did a game with no clinicians on my court. If Joe likes you, youíre going to get asked to go to a second camp later that summer and pay more money, and you still might not get picked up, so you come back next summer and pay for two more camps again.

That being said, I know some people who have had a great experience at this camp and work lots of games for Joe, so take my criticism for what itís worth. But to me, this camp epitomizes the racket of the college camp system.
Forte used to run his camps for around $250-300. He either likes you or he doesn't. I know I'm not his cup of tea, so I don't waste my time or money.

He has a poor reputation for accounting/bookkeeping, but when he hires you he works you right away.
