Just trying to get an idea how broad/targeted these emails are.

In our experience (two currently in college) most will be mass emails... You will most likely be able to tell if the email is more targeted and personal. Some programs had small "invite only camps" that they would invite the players they wanted to see at the camp and fill it up before the info/registration was made public / put on the programs website.
