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 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.
