Stratton Mountain Boys Lacrosse & Adventure Camp

Stratton Mountain School

Stratton, VT


Overview

This Vermont lacrosse camp has become an end of the summer tradition at Stratton.  The camp balances great lacrosse instruction with some of Vermont's best traditional sleepaway camp activities.  Campers will go for swims, hikes, and enjoy Bromley Mountain's summer rides. Bromley Mountain Adventure park includes a climbing wall, a mini golf course, and water slides. These are a few of the fun activities your son can take part in at this VT lax camp. Stratton Mountain School offers a beautiful campus at the base of the mountain with dorms, a dining hall, and three fields. Overnight and day camper options are offered at this lacrosse camp.  Limited space - be sure to register before this VT lax camp sells out!

This camp was soo fun! The lacrosse was great, and there were also so many other activities! The quarry was so much fun to swim in and we took lots of hikes during the free time. I can\'t wait for next year!

reviews-10 Deb C. - Parent

My son has spent the last several summers at many traditional summer camps, but this year all he could talk about was playing lacrosse. This camp at SMS was the perfect balance of the two--plenty of outdoor activities and superb lacrosse instruction. We are very impressed with the curriculum GameBreaker has built for this camp. Would recommend.

This camp has it all. Lacrosse, hiking, swimming and more. Highly recommend SMS GameBreaker Lacrosse Camp!

This was my second year and I actually loved it even more than my first year! The staff is great and they really work with you on the field. I feel like I definitely got better this week.
