Awesome!

This lacrosse camp is great! The small group instruction is the best way to learn. It is fun working with other players and coaches who are able to work with us one-on-one when needed. Awesome camp!!

Thanks!

I personally am a goalie but this lacrossse camp did so much for me. It not only was a fun week but it was full of skills drills and lots of work on things you were not the best at. This camp was my favorite of 3, because it was the most fun and helped me make friendships that will last a long time.

Highlight of the summer!

I really enjoyed my experience at camp. I made friends and was able to demonstrate my skills at a competitive level. I learned better throwing and shooting techniques that will help me as an attacker. I thank the counselors at Curry College for their time and support.
