Our Bear Valley Camp has become one of the best and most popular Overnight Camps in Northern California. Our 2016 Camp was a sellout The 2017 camp will SELL OUT as well - so grab a spot while you still can. We are taking our best coaches and counselors, and hope to have a fabulous time in the Sierra's focusing on the FUNdamentals!
In addition to some of the best Bay Area High School and College Coaches, AND players from some of the top College programs in the country, our Bear Vally Counselor staff in 2017 will feature our new Team NorCal coach Matt Donovan (Cornell All-American/Chesapeake Bayhawks Professional Team) and Special Guest Coach Matt Kavanagh (Notre Dame All-American/Denver Outlaws Professional Team)
The Bear Valley Camp is for boys AND girls, ages 8-16. Over 4 days, we'll have a number of intensive practice and scrimmage sessions - where we will work on offensive and defensive strategies, stick handling, game play, team building, and core agility. Players will also have a chance to pick special instruction sessions where they can improve their skills in things like Faceoffs, Shooting, Dodging, Goaltending, Defensive Footwork, etc.
We will also take advantage of the incredible surroundings and outdoors opportunities in Bear Valley - swimming and tubing at the lake, mountain climbing, the new Bear Valley Adventure Park featuring mountain biking, wall climbing, an amazing ropes course, and of course, S'mores around the Campfire. Oh yeah....and some Glow in the Dark Capture the Flag under the stars in the Sierra's!
We have the Bear Valley Lodge and Base Camp Lodge entirely dedicated to our use as a Camp. Campers will sleep and eat at the Lodge - an incredibly awesome place for a summer camp. .
Our main goal is to develop enthusiastic and dedicated young lacrosse players who respect and honor the game with their commitment and sportsmanship. And we'll have a blast in the process.
Team NorCal has been taking players as young as 8 on trips across the country for national lacrosse tournaments - so we are very good at managing kids staying away from home.
Our coaching lineup is first rate - we have several of the best lacrosse players to have played in the Bay Area over the last few years who are now starring for nationally ranked college lacrosse programs, as well as most of our Team NorCal Youth and HS coaches.
