Super Camping

We'll start with a quick multiple choice quiz... What is Super Camp?
A. The ultimate camp ground with all the amenities of the 21st century, 
     so one can go camping yet feel like they never left home.
B. The quintessential camping retreat, completely removed from the
     modern world... just you and Mother Nature.
C. A concise description of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
D. An annual event that brings together a team of highly respected
     kicking coaches and where kickers, punters and long snappers have a
     unique opportunity to showcase their talents in four separate divisions.

Since this is the Kickology website, and not a campology blog or a Rocky Horror fan site, option D is of course the correct response. Back in January of this year, Super Camp IV was held in Tampa Florida. Coming up in January of 2011, Super Camp V will be held in San Antonio Texas. NCS founder and former NFL kicker Michael Husted discussed the event:
"This Super Camp is unique in that we will have the best kicking coaches in the country assembled in one location to effectively teach and evaluate talent. Having current and former NFL players as well as UFL and NCAA players being part of this camp will provide a professional, comprehensive and competitive experience. Our partnership with the US Army All American Bowl, which gives us the authority to choose the kickers and punters for this game, proves that we have a very objective and efficient platform that provides instruction, evaluation and exposure for specialists."
