What are they saying?
Our experience working with Dave and the Mascot Boot Camp has been wonderful. We have sent two different performers in years past to participate and the results have been tremendous. We have sent both a veteran performer and a rookie to camp, both with positive outcomes. It was remarkable to see their improved performances upon their return. Their passion only grew stronger with their participation in the boot camp and it had a very strong impact on our fans and in game entertainment! I would highly recommend that teams consider sending their performers to learn from the best!

After 10 years of being a part time performer for the same team, attending Dave Raymond’s Mascot Boot Camp has re-energized me and I feel like I have another 10 years in me now. The ideas and energy both Dave and Chris deliver are second to none. I would recommend this experience to any new performer as well as a veteran like myself. Thanks for all fun!

At camp I was able to interact with other mascots from around the country and take the information provided to not only become a better mascot but to make "Chuck"the face of our team.”
Derrick Crump, West Virgina Power
"My performer and I both attended Dave Raymond's Mascot Training Boot Camp. After returning from the Boot Camp, I was amazed at how my mascot was able to utilize the techniques that he has learned. There was a huge difference in crowd reactions and many fans tell me that this is the best Rhubarb (our mascot) they have ever seen! Can't say it enough - thank-you, Dave! You have truly helped transform my mascot into the crowd pleaser that he is today!"
Danah Wietry, Director of Game Entertainment, Tacoma Rainiers
"This camp is the best of the best in every aspect!"

"I want to tell you again what a GREAT time I had at boot camp. The mascot training that I received was awesome. I have been putting much of what I learned to use and with great success!!!"
Steve Austin, Williamsport Crosscutters
"This camp was the inspiration that we needed to kick our mascot program up to the next level. We received so many new ideas that we can incorporate into our program, and we are very excited to see the changes happen next year."
Erica Styer, Mascot Coordinator, Millersville University
"Thank you! I had a fantastic time meeting and working with all of you this weekend and I know I’ll never forget it – for many, many reasons. I’m really looking forward to following how all of our characters develop from here on out".
Josh Brit, Rochester Red Wings
"This past weekend was such an amazing experience. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to share mascot camp with. You all brought your own techniques and styles of mascoting and taught me so much that I can now bring back to my school. I wish you all the best of luck in your mascot career! Remember, have FUN"!
Tom Beal, Gwynedd Mercy College
