Our 11th Year of Summer Camp Success - We have learned how to do this, and our camps get better each year - combining the best of the old and the new. We are the largest lacrosse summer camp provider in Northern California for a good reason!
Pro, College and Team NorCal Coaches - Our coaching roster is unmatched. Many of our travel team coaches participate in many of the camps, and returning college players and graduates are frequent guests in our Intermediate/Advanced Camps. Our Beginner Camps are staffed by high school players and adult coaches who have the patience and the skill to teach young players how to get started in the game.
Outstanding Locations - MidPeninsula, Palo Alto, South Bay, San Francisco and Santa Cruz/Monterey Locations. Our locations often have turf Fields, picnic tables and bathroom facilities - we care a lot about the atmosphere of the camp.
Largest, Most Vibrant Camps in the Bay Area - Our camps average 70 players per camp (ranges from 40 to 100 depending on location). That means there is a good range of players, so all skill levels will have critical mass, and there is a great deal of energy at a typical camp. You'll see why we set attendance records every year and our returning camper ratio is so high!
Separate Boys and Girls Tracks - Separate fields, instructors, and level of commitment. Girls are led by Colleen Niklaus, Director of Girl's Programs, Team NorCal and former St Ignatius Coach Varsity Head Coach, where she led them to 4 #1 rankings in the State.
Beginner and Intermediate/Advanced Level Camp Options - Differentiated instruction/instructors/fields for all age and skill levels. For Beginners, we start from scratch and go methodically though the fundamentals. For Intermediate/Advanced, a 'training camp' experience for players at the travel team level or with several years of experience looking to substantially enhance their skills.
Half Day, Full Day and Overnight Options - Beginners can attend half day or full day. Intermediate/Advanced Camp is always full day. Bear Valley Overnight is a four day, three night overnight camp held form July 29th-August 1st in Bear Valley, California in the Sierra's.
Camp Snacks Included - Fresh fruit Monday morning, water and gatorade all day every day, candy for those who work hard in camp, and morning and afternoon snacks like granola bars to stay fueled. Either an ice cream sundae cart from Rick's Rather Rich Ice Cream or an all camp lunch on Thursday - depending on location!
Free Loaner Equipment - We have full gear - sticks, helmets, gloves, mouthpiece and pads available for boy and girl beginners to use during the camp. If you have some or all of the equipment, we encourage you to being it, but if not, you are covered!
Camp Jersey - All campers get a reversible Team NorCal jersey to use and keep!
Non-Lacrosse Activities - While we love lacrosse, we find it best to occasionally feather in other co-ed all camp activities like Capture the Flag, Sharks and Minnows, and Lacrosse Baseball and Olympics to help campers make more friends and also keep interest high.
