A detailed camper registration packet containing check-in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. All individual forms can be found at the MB Sports Camps website: http://www.mbsportscamps.com/registered-campers/important-forms.
The MBSC/Nike Sports Camps at Curry College has double the Supervision! We hire two separate staff groups: coaching staff and counselor staff. This ensures that coaches are not overworked and can adequately teach and coach lacrosse every day. It also ensures that your children are being well supervised during all non-sport hours. Also the owners/directors reside in the dorms with campers!
Over three quarters of our enrollment is comprised of overnight campers. All meals, lodging, formal lacrosse instruction and leisure time activities are provided for our campers.

MBSC/Nike Sports Camp at Curry College is one of the only camps that offer nightly OFF-Campus Activities. Off-Campus activities are available for extended day and overnight campers. Our activities are pre-organized and include events such as: MLS Soccer Games, Boston Red Sox Baseball Games, Laser Tag, Bowling, Hard Rock Café, Charlie Horse, Funway Café, 6 Flags (weekend), Water Country (weekend), Whale Watch (weekend), and much much more!
Activities are not mandatory, and campers either choose to attend a few activities during the week, all activities, or no activities. There will be plenty to do on-campus for campers who choose to not participate in off-campus activities including: our ping pong room, watching movies, board games, card games, volleyball, and more. Campers from all sports are housed together and participate in activities as a whole. Counselors will provide 24/7 supervision for both on and off-campus activities to keep the appropriate ratios on the trip and back at the dorms! Click here for our Schedule of Evening Activities.
Lacrosse campers receive 5 to 6 hours of daily instruction covering:
Shooting ♦ Dodging ♦ Ground Balls ♦ Fast Breaks ♦ Feeding & Finishing ♦ Cutting ♦ Stick Skills ♦ Clears ♦ Face-Off ♦ Wing Play ♦ Offensive and Defensive Fundamentals
In addition, scrimmages (6x6 and full field) take place throughout each session. Campers are evaluated on the first day and are divided considering ability, position, size and age. All campers must bring their own equipment.
EXTRA NIGHT & SPECIALTY BOX LACROSSE CLINIC
New in 2017 you now have the option to add an Extra Night to make your camp experience a 5 night, 6 day camp! Price: $95
Instead of going home on Thursday, this new program focuses on traditional Canadian box lacrosse style of play and extends your camp through Friday afternoon with one additional night on campus, 3 additional nutritious meals, and 6 hours of additional instruction. The specialty box lacrosse clinic will take place on a regular outdoor field but with indoor size nets, 5-on-5 drills and games, and continuous, high-paced play inherent to the indoor game. Box lacrosse promotes quicker hands/stick skills, footwork, and working together as a smaller defensive unit while improving player’s overall lacrosse IQ. Campers can add this extra night and specialty clinic to their shopping cart during checkout.
WEEKEND STAY OVER:
Includes housing and meals for Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning. Price: $275
Saturdays vary. This is the day of our "Big" Field Trip (either Six Flags, Water Country or Whale Watch). Campers return by 4:45 pm in time for dinner. Lunches are provided on each Big Field Trip.
Campers who are not attending the Big Activity usually sleep in. Brunch and Dinner will be in the dining hall. Campers usually use this day to relax, do laundry and play in-dorm activites. They can also have private lessons with their favorite coach for their sport or another sport. Games are also organized for fun with the coaches.
Some Saturday's we may also take the campers to the mall, if enough would like to go.
Closest Airport: Boston Logan International Airport
Airport and train pick-up and drop-off services from Boston Logan are available for $100 one way or $200 roundtrip. Transportation forms are included in the registration packet that you will receive prior to camp.

OTHER MBSC/NIKE SPORTS CAMPS AT CURRY COLLEGE:
In addtion to Nike Boy's Lacrosse Camp, MBSC offers a Nike Girl's Lacrosse Camp, Nike Tennis Camp, Nike Golf Camp, Nike Basketball Camp, Nike Softball Camp and Nike Soccer Camp. Many campers who play more than one sport are able to play 1 week of lacrosse and another week of another sport (without ever having to move locations… they can even stay in the same dorm room!)
When mixing sports, campers must participate in at least 1 full week of each sport. Sports can not be mixed during the week. This is because each sports camp is an Intensified Training Program and should not be interrupted mid week.
The wooded, 135-acre Milton campus is one of the most attractive small college campuses in New England. Campers will enjoy Curry's outstanding facilities which include eleven outdoor tennis courts, grass and turf fields, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, outdoor swimming pool, new air conditioned dorms and a wonderful dining facility.
