    Every lacrosse player in the region should be attending this camp

    July 6, 2021: This is a great camp to help lacrosse players, of all skill levels, take the next step. The on-field instruction focuses on techniques that will make campers better players. No matter the camper's skill level, the staff takes time to work with them 1-on-1 on a regular basis. Every lacrosse player between 7 and 12 in the region should be attending this camp.

    learned new skills

    July 3, 2021: My son learned new skills and facts about lax that he didn't know from playing with his rec team in Lexington. He liked that they had the opportunity to do scrimmages. He enjoyed the raffles at the end of the day each day of camp

    Absolutely Wonderful Experience!

    July 3, 2016: I just wanted to thank you for the absolutely wonderful experience my son had at camp. He is so pumped about his high school tryout. You helped him tremendously. My husband and I were very impressed with your camp and the way that it was run. We also want to tell you that your assistant coaches were so wonderful to the boys. Our son has NOT stopped talking about how much he learned and what fun it was to meet such nice guys. We even took him to see some of the colleges where your staff member played lacrosse. We just wanted to let you know how glad we were to have sent our son to your camp. You will definitely see him again. Thanks again for all of your efforts.
