excited to be there everyday!

Jack and Cameron loved lacrosse camp and were really excited to be there everyday. They love the game and being around other kids who share their passion. The best part was that they improved their game while having tons of fun in the sun!

The camp was very organized and run well.  My son loved the coaches and the director Mario Enea! Mario's passion for lacrosse was infectious and his strong presence, passion, energy and love for lacrosse, coaching and the kids were the highlight of the camp.
