"Camp Bakes has, hands down, more professional bowling experience from the PBA Tour and LPBT than any of the other camps around. Between the classroom and on lane instruction, our bowlers can expect to improve their physical skills and knowledge of the game. The video portion of the camp lets the bowler take home a piece of the camp so they can continue to work on and improve their game. I always leave the camp with a little more knowledge than when I came."
