Staying overnight at UW is the best part of my summer! The coaches are always the best and lacrosse is really fun. But my favorite part is the dorms, it is fun meeting new friends and also playing ping pong, pool and watching tv during freetime!

My children have been attending the GameBreaker Lacrosse Camp at UWashington for a few years now. My sons have always had a great experience. The quality of coaching is exceptional and they love being on campus at UW. My daughter was nervous about going to camp on her own for the first time. The staff was great about making sure she was right at home, now she insists on going back each year. Great staff, great location it has been a great experience!

The camp over the summer was great. My son said he learned so much from the coaches. He now spends extra time each day trying to improve on his skills.
