My son had a great week! He enjoyed learning more about the game and meeting new friends. I felt the staff did a good job running the program, and even learned the children’s names the first day!

I was extremely happy with this program. Not only did my son love it, I felt safe leaving him with the coaches at camp. I really appreciated the good behaviors they taught my son in addition to the lacrosse.
