David Raymond’s mascot performer training was created over 17 years ago. Hundreds of performers have attended our weekend long training seminars. Former attendees include full time performers with the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB. If you are looking to become a great performer or want a great performer to bring your character to life, don’t waste your time or money anywhere else.
"After 10 years of being a part time performer for the same team, attending Dave Raymond’s Mascot Boot Camp has re-energized me. 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!"
- Dave Deas, Clearwater Threshers
"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 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' 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, Tacoma Rainiers
"This camp is the best of the best in every aspect!"
- Isaiah Arpino, Altoona Curve
"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."
