My 7-year-old had a great first experience with lacrosse. My son was all smiles after every camp day and felt great about his achievements

I didn’t think my boys would like this camp because they haven\'t played that much lacrosse but after a friend recommended the camp to me. They attended camp last summer and now love playing a new sport! Thanks GameBreaker!
