Samuel really had a blast. He went to three other camps this summer and he really enjoyed this one. The coaches really made it happen, they were positive, happy and confident.

We have had great luck with GameBreaker camps. Coach Ben is very friendly, and the emphasis in their camps is on the boys having fun and feeling good about their lacrosse skills.

My son attended GameBreaker Lacrosse Camp at Carl Sandburg Middle last summer. He has been involved in numerous other camps over the years and GameBreaker was by far his favorite.
