    Thanks so much!

    July 18, 2018: Thanks so much for running a great youth lacrosse camp! My son had lots of fun and gained more knowledge of the game and skills, to take with him as he starts high school lacrosse as a freshman next month. He couldn’t stop talking about camp on our drive home. It was very well organized, safe, great food-very kind staff in the dining hall-older lady, my son said she was like a grandmother to the boys, liked staying in the clean dorms, and the competitions-he won two prizes. Good Stuff! Thanks again!

    Small group instruction!

    July 29, 2016: The small group instruction was good- my son learned a lot in that format. The Nike Lacrosse Camps have excellent instruction and coaching. They really know how to run a camp correctly. We will be back next summer!

    Wonderful experience at camp!

    July 28, 2016: My son had an overall wonderful experience at camp! The coach did a great job from the very beginning, laying the ground rules for respecting others, having fun, and building skills. He had a blast, learned a lot, and had fun making some new friends. I was very impressed with the caliber of all the coaches and how everything ran so smoothly. Each day, he walked away with stories of specific new, high-level skills & tips he learned from the coaches. We definitely plan to return next year as an overnight camper. This time he was a day camper, because he was hesitant to do overnight when we registered for the 1st time. But within 10 minutes upon arrival, he wanted to be an overnight camper, having already made some friends.
