Overnight Camp with Commuter and Full day options
Open to all levels of players, the camp will place an emphasis on individual skill development as well as team work and strategy. All aspects of the game are covered, allowing for solid building, all in a fun and competitive environment.
Campers are placed into small instruction groups with players of similar age, ability and skill level. Each group will work on a comprehensive curriculum that is tailored towards the needs.
Our volleyball camp is a 5 day / 4 night summer camp, one of the longest youth camps in Ohio. We feel it is important to have 5 days to ensure the proper amount of repetitions in our drills and strategy sessions. Each day will feature 5.5 – 6 hours on the field.
The key to a great youth volleyball camp and a productive learning environment is making sure the experience is fun. Using a wide variety of drills, games, and competition on the courts is sup-plemented with daily off field social and recreational activities.
Safety is our top priority both on and off the courts. The campers are monitored around the clock by the camp staff, the college security staff and our camp directors. Activities are always per-formed in a group setting to ensure camper safety.

- 5-6 hours of volleyball each day
- Small group instruction to ensure personal attention
- First rate facilities

MEET YOUR COACHES
Head Women’s Volleyball Coach
Hired in February of 2014, Amanda Krampf, a former assistant at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, took over the Ladies program for Katie Charles, who exited the program after six seasons. After some growing pains in 2014, Krampf guided the Ladies to their first winning season since 1990 when they posted a 15-13 mark in 2015.
At McDaniel, Krampf spent four seasons as an assistant while gaining a master’s degree in counselor education. She directed the program through a head coaching change in 2012 and helped steer the Green Terror from an 0-25 record in 2011 to a 19-9 mark this past season. Krampf, who focused on recruiting, fundraising, practice and game plans, also established McDaniel’s first volleyball camp in 2013.
Prior to her time at McDaniel, Krampf was a four-year starting setter at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. During that time, she became a four-time All-Centennial Conference selection. She was a two-time team captain and she finished her career with 3,800 assists, a total that ranks third all-time at Gettysburg. She still holds the program record for service attempts (1,777) and ranks fourth all-time with 1,627 digs.
Krampf, who graduated from Gettysburg in 2010 with a degree in psychology, owns additional coaching experience as the head coach of the Gettysburg men’s club team (2008-10), as head coach of the Carroll Viper volleyball club (2009-12), as the setting director at Montgomery Village Sports Association (2012-14), and as an assistant coach with USA Volleyball Chesapeake Region High Performance (2011-13).
