Thank you so much for providing a wonderful and safe environment to teach my 4th grader new lacrosse skills. This camp was a great learning experience for him being new to the game.

If you want your kid to come home every day from camp with smile on their face, pleasantly exhausted and with stories about all the lacrosse they participated in that day, GameBreaker camps could not be a better choice!

This was my son’s first summer at lacrosse camp. He didn’t know any other campers and didn’t have a lot of previous experience playing. But everyone was so welcoming and he learned a lot. He is excited to come back for more next summer with all his new friends!
