Great instruction!

Kids had a great time and got better. My girls were day campers and after the first night wanted to stay over. Next year we are coming back as overnight campers! Great instruction and friendly coaches!

Great Experience!

This was my daughter's first sleep away camp so I was very nervous on the first day when dropping her off. Right as we got to check-in the coaches were so nice and welcoming to everyone which made me feel more comfortable about having my daughter there. My daughter called me through out the camp duration and always told me how much fun she was having and how her coaches were "super cool." I always felt that my daughter was safe and well accounted for. This experience has not only been great for my daughter but for me. I am so happy I made the decision to send her to here. My daugher is sooo looking forward to next summer!

Thank you Nike!

My daughter had a GREAT experience and can't wait to go back next year! This is a wonderful opportunity to gain some independence and branch out a bit. She not only improved her stills as a field player, but as a more confident person. Thank you Nike!

We will be back next year!

My daughter loved all of the coaches at camp and how serious they are about lacrosse. This was such an awesome experience to work with people who just know the sport and give good advice. We will be back next year!

I am counting the days down until next summer!

I went to camp not knowing anyone and made some great friends. The coaches were awesome and I learned a ton of new drills that I had never been introduced to before. I am counting the days down until next summer.
