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.

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.
