Foxcroft School Girls Lacrosse and Leadership Camp
Middleburg, VA 20117
We’d like to introduce our new Lacrosse and Leadership Camp for Girls to you. This camp has been designed to address a void in the growing lacrosse community. While players are spending time playing for sometimes multiple teams, there appears to be a lack of leadership and team building development.
At camp, we will help campers learn about being part of something – a team or cause – bigger than themselves. The camp will combine outstanding lacrosse instruction with off-field camp activities designed to promote teamwork and teach leadership skills. At the end of camp, we want all campers to not only be better lacrosse players, but also recognize how as leaders they can be more valuable to their team, their school, and their community.
We look forward to the opportunity to meet and work with you this summer.
