Soccer Camp Reviews: The Results of Parent & Camper Surveys

Soccer Camp Reviews

We ask every camper and parent to evaluate the Berky experience. The results give us direct and honest feedback about camp. We learn what to improve and what campers & parents appreciated. This blog is the first of two posts reviewing the feedback from the summer of 2019. Let’s take a moment to celebrate what went well.

The Most Important Questions That We Review

These questions are critical to us because they are the most important to parents.

  • Did my daughter improve her soccer?
  • Did she have fun and meet new friends?
  • Was attending soccer camp worth the investment?  

This year the answer to these questions was overwhelmingly “Yes.” These results have been consistent year to year. Review our 2017 survey analysis and 2018 feedback.

Reviews Part II- Enhancements and Improvement

After each session, we carefully review camper and parent survey data and comments, and respond immediately when possible.  At summer’s end, we again review every camper, parent and staff survey and carefully consider what can be done to address concerns and suggestions. The resulting changes and improvements – which are under discussion – will be shared in a late-fall blog post.
