Can't wait to return!

This was my first time at an overnight camp and I was a little scared to go because I didnt know anyone but I quickly relaxed and made many friends.  the coaches were friendly and always willing to help and give excellent feedback.  I loved living in the dorms and meeting lacrosse players from all over the country. The food was great and the field was nice.  Can't wait to return.

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.

Great ratio of campers to coaches.

Jen Perestock 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.

Best camp!

Nike Lacrosse Camp is an awesome camp! I couldn't wait to be old enough to go. This was my second summer at Nike Camp. I've told so many people about how great this camp is and they all went with me this summer. They loved it just as much as I do. I can't wait for next summer to get here!

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.

I scored my first goal here!

This camp taught me so much! I've never played offense before coming to camp, and I scored my first goal here! I highly recommend this camp for anyone who wants to improve on their lax skills.

It was one of the best weeks of my life, I had fun every minute and didn't want to leave at all. I made so many friends and learned so many helpful things. It was nice meeting coaches from different colleges also.
