Wonderful experience!

Our daughters have been attending the camp at St. Vincent from the time they were old enough until they gradauted from high school. Our youngest has 4 years left and is already looking forward to meeting up with her friends from around the country each of the remaining summers. Our daughters have gained skill and confidence with each camp and have been starting players on their middle and high school teams. Our eldest is now playing in college. We cannot praise the camp, the staff, and the coaches enough. It has been a wonderful experience for all of us.

Best camp!

Tom Harbert and his staff were great and seemed to inspire the girls to get better during every session. This is our second time doing the camp and I would do it again. Thanks for another great experience and great memories.

Great ratio of campers to coaches.

Coach Harbert was great and had such a positive interaction with the girls. My daughter had a great time and learned so much. I especially appreciated that the number of campers was kept to a manageable size, so it allowed for a great ratio of coaches to campers. It was a great experience for her and she will definitely attend camp again.

Thank you!

I wanted to thank you for a wonderful camp experience! Your camp really helped me to improve my leadership skills, endurance and my accuracy on all my fundamentals. In fact it helped me so much that my coach made me captain of my team! Also because of my new and improved fundamental skills I have made accurate passes, ground balls and shots. I have scored 24 goals this season! My dad said, “I went into camp a sissy and came out a lacrosse animal". I don't know how true that is, but I wanted to send you this email to thank you for a wonderful camp experience last year and let you know how excited I am for this summer’s camp!

Become a better player.

I believe that this camp is the best skills camp for female lacrosse players in the nation. The players and coaches that worked at the camp made sure that every player received individual instruction no matter their age or experience level. I was able to work on my weaknesses with the assistance of the staff and I feel confident that I am a better player after going to the camp.
