Hopefully by the end of summer, all adults in California who want a vaccine with be vaccinated. The 90% drop in the infection rate we have seen in the last month makes us very optimistic that we can return to Bear Valley this summer, The ski resort and lodge are open now to the public.
As we did last summer with summer day camps, we will have a very comprehensive plan to stay safe. You will hear more details on our specific plans for this summer in the coming weeks.
Our Bear Valley Camp Overnight Lacrosse Camp has become the most popular Overnight Camp in Northern California. Our 2019 Camp was a sellout. The pandemic shut down all overnight camps in 2020. The 2021 camp will SELL OUT as well - so grab a spot while you still can.
Some of the best Bay Area High School and College Coaches, AND players from some of the top College programs in the country will join our Bear Valley Counselor staff in 2021.
The Bear Valley Camp is for boys AND girls, ages 8-18. Over 4 days, we'll have seven intense practice and scrimmage sessions - working on offensive and defensive strategies, stick handling, gameplay, 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 with Mountain Adventure Seminars, and and of course, S'mores around the Campfire and a Moonlight Lacrosse game under the stars in the Sierras.
We have the Bear Valley Lodge and several Private Houses adjacent to the 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. For those interested, you can spend one or three nights in the new Glamping tents on the Bear Valley Ski Ridge ledge - with AMAZING views of the Sierras and the setting sun.
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.
