    GREAT Camp!

    July 13, 2018: Great setting and facilities at the Berry College campus. Coach Gilbert and his staff were well organized and so much fun. It was a great mix of high level instruction and letting kids being kids. The college players who were helping run sessions were just so great to the younger kids and full of advice and tips for the older boys considering Berry for their college choice!

    Can't wait for next summer!

    July 23, 2016: Berry College was super organized before and during camp. The coaches also did a great job at creating a very positive atmosphere for the campers. Supervision and safety was especially impressive and the positive attitudes of the college players who assisted and the coaches made camp fun for all. Can't wait for next summer!

    Money well spent!!

    July 21, 2016: I was so happy for my Son, I told him he needed to go to a camp and learn how to correctly play the game since he has only played 2 years. After his time at camp, he was awarded most improved player. He also took what he learned back to his school to teach the other players. Money well spent!! Thanks Coaches!! Sincerely Happy Mom

    I can't recommend this camp enough!

    July 21, 2015: My son just finished his first season of lacrosse when I signed him up for the Nike camp at Berry College. I can't recommend this camp enough. My son learned so much and came back believing in himself and talking about college lacrosse. When I sat watching the end of camp ceremony I was so impressed with the positive environment that that coaches and counselors had with the students. It was the best camp and I can't tell you enough that if your on the fence send them. My son learned so many skills that he's now practicing on his own. He's already talking about camp next year.

    We will be back!

    July 21, 2015: This camp is SO organized!! There is absolutely no confusion on where to drop off and pick up your camper. Staff accompanies an assigned group of campers to every activity, so there is no unsupervised time like at other camps that we have participated in. We will be back!

    Really enjoyed it!

    July 18, 2015: I really enjoyed my experience at camp. I made friends and was able to demonstrate my skills at a competitive level. I learned better throwing and shooting techniques that will help me as an attacker. I can't thank the counselors enough at Berry College for their time and support.
