A detailed camper registration packet containing check-in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. All individual forms can be found at the MB Sports Camps website: http://www.mbsportscamps.com/registered-campers/important-forms.
The MBSC/Nike Sports Camps at Curry College has double the Supervision! We hire two separate staff groups: coaching staff and counselor staff. This ensures that coaches are not overworked and can adequately teach and coach lacrosse every day. It also ensures that your children are being well supervised during all non-sport hours. Also the owners/directors reside in the dorms with campers!
Over three quarters of our enrollment is comprised of overnight campers. All meals, lodging, formal lacrosse instruction and leisure time activities are provided for our campers. Overnighters stay 2 per room in student dorms located within walking distance to the fields. Roommates are guaranteed so long as both campers request each other.

MBSC/Nike Sports Camp at Curry College is one of the only camps that offer nightly OFF-Campus Activities. Our activities are pre-organized and include events such as: MLS Soccer Games, Boston Red Sox Baseball Games, Laser Tag, Bowling, Hard Rock Café, Charlie Horse, Funway Café, 6 Flags (weekend), Water Country (weekend), Whale Watch (weekend), and much much more! Off campus evening activities have additional costs and will be chosen closer to camp via the Additional Services Forms Online.
Activities are not mandatory, and campers either choose to attend a few activities during the week, all activities, or no activities. Either way, for those campers who stay back: There will be plenty to do such as our ping pong room, watching movies, board games, card games, volleyball, and more. Counselors stay back to keep the appropriate ratios on the trip and back at the dorms!
Lacrosse campers receive 5 to 6 hours of daily instruction covering:
3. Ground Balls
4. Fast Breaks
5. Feeding & Finishing
7. Stick Skills
10. Wing Play
11. Offensive and Defensive Fundamentals
In addition, scrimmages (6x6 and full field) take place throughout each session. Campers are evaluated on the first day and are divided considering ability, position, size and age. All campers must bring their own equipment.
WEEKEND STAY OVER:
Includes housing and meals for Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning. Price: $250
Saturdays vary. This is the day of our "Big" Field Trip (either Six Flags, Water Country or Whale Watch). Campers return by 4:45 pm in time for dinner. Lunches are provided on each Big Field Trip.
Campers who are not attending the Big Activity usually sleep in. Brunch and Dinner will be in the dining hall. Campers usually use this day to relax, do laundry and play in-dorm activites. They can also have private lessons with their favorite coach for their sport or another sport. Games are also organized for fun with the coaches.
Some Saturday's we may also take the campers to the mall, if enough would like to go.
Closest Airport: Boston Logan International Airport
Round trip airport transfers from Boston Logan are available for an additional fee of $175. After you complete your camp registration, additional information will be forthcoming about how to sign up and pay for these additional services. We understand that flights do not always arrive during the "typical pick up time" listed in your registration packet, and that is fine. As long as we have the flight information in advance we are very flexible with the pick up and drop off times.
Team Discount: If five or more campers register together, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $25 discount. Click “Get Brochure” above and print the application. All applications must be received at the same time via mail or fax. If all members of your group pay with a Visa or MasterCard, feel free to fax your applications to 415-479-6061 to expedite processing. Late or individual registrations are not eligible to receive the group discount.
Goalie Discount: To ensure each session has enough goalies for drills and scrimmages, all goalies automatically qualify for a special $50 discount. You can call 1-800-645-3226 to receive the goalie discount over the phone or you can indicate that you are eligible for the goalie discount in the “comments” field when registering via our secure website. Goalie discount cannot be combined with any other discount.
OTHER MBSC/NIKE SPORTS CAMPS AT CURRY COLLEGE:
In addtion to Nike Girl's Lacrosse Camp, MBSC offers a Nike Boy's Lacrosse Camp, Nike Tennis Camp, Nike Golf Camp, Nike Basketball Camp, Nike Softball Camp and Nike Soccer Camp. Many campers who play more than one sport are able to play 1 week of lacrosse and another week of another sport (without ever having to move locations… they can even stay in the same dorm room!)
When mixing sports, campers must participate in at least 1 full week of each sport. Sports can not be mixed during the week. This is because each sports camp is an Intensified Training Program and should not be interrupted mid week.
The wooded, 135-acre Milton campus is one of the most attractive small college campuses in New England. Campers will enjoy Curry's outstanding facilities which include eleven outdoor tennis courts, grass and turf fields, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, outdoor swimming pool, new air conditioned dorms and a wonderful dining facility.
