Our son loved attending camp this summer. He had a blast learning from the coaches and hopes to come back next year.

reviews-10 Anthony B. - Parent

We came from out of town to attend this camp so our son could get out of his comfort zone of playing with his friends. We have had good experiences with GameBreaker camps in the past and this camp was no exception.

reviews-10 Krista G. - Parent

Sending my son to this camp was huge for his lacrosse experience. He was able to improve areas of his game that he didn\'t know could use tweaking. Overall it was great experience and we will recommend this to anyone that asks about lacrosse camps.
