I really enjoyed my time at camp this summer. I didn\'t know anyone going to the camp. The coaches made sure we all knew each other with some icebreaker games on the first day. I also became good friends with my roommate at camp and we are planning on being roommates again next summer.

I would like to thank GameBreaker Lacrosse for putting on such a wonderful camp. My son learned so much and had such a fun time.

reviews-10 Winston R. - Parent

My son has been playing lacrosse for about five years now and the coaching he got at camp was by far the best he\'s ever received. My son was never overwhelmed by the information he was given because the coaches broke down teaching and playing excellently.
