See you next year!

My 12 year old daughter attended the day camp without knowing anyone and left making some great friendships with people from all different states that she is keeping in touch with.  We definitely plan to return next year for overnight camp.

Loved this camp!

My daughter had a great time at the Nike Lacrosse Camp at Endicott College. The coaching staff were impressive and she learned so much. She spent tons of time playing games, meeting new people, getting great instruction to improve her game and having the time of her life. She came away from the camp so excited and energized by the positive experience. As we left the dorm she said "I am definitely doing this again next year!" She went with two friends and all three of the girls are already making plans to attend next June. Thank you so much for this experience and she will see you next June.

Great experience!

Coach Freda was great and had such a positive influence on 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.”
