X10 Adirondack is a co-ed camp limited to a total of 250 campers entering 5th through 9th grades. Our camp facility is divided into the X10 Boys Main Village and the X10 Girls Main Village.
What level lacrosse players attend X10?
This is a camp for athletes of all abilities who are passionate about lacrosse and who are looking to spend time working to elevate their game.
What if this is my child's first experience at sleep away camp?
Counselors receive special training on keeping campers engaged and having fun at all times.
If campers are taking the bus they are sought out and made sure to have a bus mate from their cabin to get to know on the way up. When campers arrive on the first day counselors spend time playing getting to know you games and establishing cabin expectations.
The Bocklets' and counselors have plenty of experience with first time campers and know just the right amount of special attention needed in these situations.
Do you use a unique, lacrosse-specific training programming?
Yes! With an emphasis on lacrosse development, athletes spend the majority of the day on the field playing hard, having fun, and developing a stronger, better, smarter game.
Our drills and teaching techniques offer a cutting edge approach to training, with a specific focus on breaking down all concepts of position and team play for the developing athlete.
Do goalkeepers receive specific training?
Campers interested in separate goal-keeping sessions should indicate so on the camp application.
Goalkeepers are on a different training track than field players. Some of their instruction will overlap with the field players. They will train together with the field players to develop necessary skills and field awareness, but also receive specialized instruction in goal-keeping techniques and tactics.
Goaltending training will consist of angle play, approach to the ball, communication, clearing, and leadership skills.

We have a vegetarian and salad bar available at every lunch and dinner and fruit is served at all meals. Any food allergies and dietary restrictions must be indicated in your health form but are addressed and accommodated as needed.
Due to the rigorous schedule of fun campers experience at camp, quantity and quality of food is crucial. Boys and girls have access to as much food at meal time as they'd like. X10 also has an afternoon and evening snack time.
Hydration is also essential to camper well being. There are water jugs on every field and frequent water breaks are taken throughout lacrosse sessions to maintain hydration.
