WOW!!!!! This is what makes DAP so well known. You guys are so awesome for what you do. I must agree literally with my friend Errol, in that I wish I could have had the opportunity our young swimmers have today to excel in this great sport some "umpteen" years ago. DAP, you are "The Bomb", and with what you provide today is certainly "Off The Chain".  GOD BLESS YOU DAP!!!!!!

What a super good video! Thanks for sharing. Are there scholarships for low-income minorities to attend this camp?

This is a great video. It gives us a glimpse into that exciting camp experience. Will it work? Time will only tell.

Good stuff - now if only I were 55 years younger . . . not really, but certainly keep up the good work and inspiration that you are doing, and helping to grow the sport that I love. Terrific job, Ben.
