Youth lacrosse camps are typically offered during the summer. While there is an emphasis placed on developing skills throughout the camp, summer camp also involves short-sided games and other forms of competition. Additionally, the instruction that is offered tends to be broad, whereas clinic instruction tends to be more focused on one aspect of the game. Summer lacrosse camp, which is offered for boys only, tends to be three or four days in duration. Each day involves approximately three hours of activities/instruction/competition.
