Summer Kids Overnight Camp

Hey Everyone! So, I have this idea. I want to create a summer kids overnight camp. I know there are alot of young players, serious players who want to become pros. But once they get to a certain level, where do they go to learn from the pros? To get their inspiration? To learn the tricks of the trade from their very own role models? Right now....nowhere. So, I was thinking, if I could use my resources to create a camp, an affordable one, that will go in the summer and be for kids at atleast an intermediate level, who aspire to become pros, ....that would be so cool. I would have classes that work on advanced 8ball and 9ball strategies, careers in billiards, the mental game, financial management, marketing yourself, etc. Wouldn't that be sooooo cool??? And if they can spend four days with the Black Widow and Johnny Archer and Allison Fisher and Mika Immonen? Ask them questions, play pool with them....I just gotta make it happen. Anyone have any ideas, want to be a sponsor, just email me off my site and title it "Kids Camp". I'd love to hear from you. I have the perfect place! Love you guys!

What a noble idea!

1, How do you convince the parents? Afterall they are the ones who'd be paying / signing release.

2, What do you think about working with BEF / ACUI ?

Let me know what I can help :)

Hi Jeanette, this is krystal from the bca, got to play you in the challange deal at robins booth, it was such a pleasure to see a very well known face as yours and to see how much you really want to help these kids....Kids these days need positive influences like billiards to keep thier minds going on a upward path. Even another idea would be for next years bca to have the parents that may bring their kids ...have a hour lesson for a group of them, to really get more young minds involved in such a great sport and activity to keep them occupied....but would love to hear from you and when you may have something like this for some young kids here that i know that have a love for the game, that would be honored to be taught by such a great inspiration like you....well hope you and your family is well talk to you later....

Hello Jeanette,
Was great to see you at state in Indianapolis a couple weeks ago.
My eleven year old son Rek had the time of his life playing a game with you. Thanks for all of the instruction that you gave him.
I was very proud of how he conducted himself. He really loves the game and is looking forward to attending the camp this summer.
Thank you for making the camp available to the youth of pool.
