My favorite camp!

I have been to tons of lacrosse camps over the summers and the UMW Nike Lacrosse Camp was by far my favorite camp. I learned a lot and challenged myself even though I was in the advanced group. I enjoyed playing with the top players, everyone was so nice. UMW Nike camp is the perfect balance between lacrosse and fun!

Great quality camp.

The Nike Girl’s Lacrosse Camp at the University of Mary Washington was the THE BEST EXPERIENCE my daughter had this summer. The director, Dana Hall, and her staff are the most terrific motivators! We would do it again in a heartbeat and plan to recommend this camp to everyone we know.
