Summer Camp 2009 was held in Lakeland, FL. Camp was hosted by Shihan Frank Phillips and Shodai Gene Thorner. Again many of the same Masters... Master Ruriko Masutani, Master John Hamilton, Master John Farrell, and Master Mike Farrell, from the previous summer camps, donated their time and expertise. The difference this year is that we had newer Masters participated and teach as well.
