Thanks for a great week!

I loved all the scrimmage work and position work at camp.  I was able to work on a few different positions which was great for me since I am a little new to the sport.  The friends I met at camp and the coaches were very supportive of me and wanted to see me improve, which was so nice.  I made some awesome friends at this camp and I cannot wait to go again next year to see everyone again. Thanks for a great week!

Can't wait to come back next summer!

I think that anyone who goes to the camp would enjoy it because you get lots of time to practice your skills. You get to meet new people and create new friendships with your roommates and teammates. The coaches were very friendly and taught me so much.  Can't wait to come back next summer.

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.

I have attended this camp for 2 years in a row! I absolutely loved it and probably will be attending again for a third year. The coaching staff is awesome and I have learned so many skills that have improved my game! The accommodations were great and so was the food too!
