Director's Note to Campers

"We are so excited to be hosting Nike Field Hockey Camp again this summer at Mount Holyoke College. This year will be particularly special as those campers will be the first to compete on our brand-new turf field. We have a wonderful staff who are eager to get the dust off their sticks, whistles ready, while getting back to hockey fundamentals and scrimmaging. Camp should be the best part of the summer as we will hone your skills but also provide balance and encourage fun and excitement with friends new and old. Night scrimmages under the lights and Mini-Olympics tend to be the favorites of camp and that will be a highlight for the coaching staff as well. We look forward to hosting you and coaching you to be the best player you can be!" - Andy Whitcomb

Please have someone contact the US Sports Camps office at 1-800-645-3226 with the names of each camper in the group and we will create a unique discount code for your group.

    This camp was the BEST!!

    August 9, 2021: "Ceci had a blast at Nike Field Hockey Camp at Mt Holyoke! She loved the coaching staff (very positive) and improved her field hockey skills during her 4 days at camp. On her first day, she realized her age group was still in the learning stages of field hockey and her coach allowed her to move up to the higher age group which proved to be an excellent move. Also, Ceci and her friends from home said the food was GREAT! Ceci has been to quite a few field hockey camps and she said the camp at Mt Holyoke was the BEST!! Thank you."
