After hearing about this summer camp a few times in the past, we decided to break our normal routine and try it out. Both my 8 yr old and 11 yr old absolutely loved the program and crowned it the best

Grace is always so stoked after a day at lacrosse camp. She loves having fun with her group and the encouragement she gets from the coaches. It is always a highlight of the summer for her. Thanks to all the staff!

The Hackley School camp was a great experience for my daughter. She came home with a big smile on her face asking if she can do the camp again next year. Thank you GameBreaker!
