preparing for camp

This is helpful information to prepare for your camp session.

What To Bring To Camp

Your LAX Gear
Campers must be equipped according to NCAA rules with mouth guard, NOCSAE helmet with 4-point chin strap, gloves, shoulder pads and appropriate shoes. Goalies must also have a throat protector, chest protector and arm pads.

You must bring your own pillows, sheets, blankets and towels. These items are not provided. Beds take twin sheets, regular length.

The rooms are not air conditioned at Denison so bring a fan.

It is highly recommended that you bring broken-in (versus brand new) shoes to camp to help prevent blisters. Also, non-marking tennis or basketball sneakers are mandatory for indoor play. Flip flops are recommended for use in the showers.

Campers should bring soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste and a good all purpose powder, such as Gold Bond, to alleviate chafing. Plan on using all of these items.

About Personal Items
Campers are discouraged from bringing valuables and fragile items to camp. The Lacrosse Academy will not be responsible for property that is lost, damaged or stolen.

Camp Notes

Camp Check In
Campers must check-in from 1:00pm - 2:30pm on the first day of each camp and are free to leave after they check out at 11:30 a.m. on the last day of camp.

Room Key Deposit
A $40 key deposit is required at the time of registration. Your deposit can be paid in cash or by check, both of which will be returned at check out. If making your key deposit with a check it should be a separate check from their tuition balance.

Campers’ Autos
Any camper driving themselves to camp MUST TURN IN HIS CAR KEYS at registration. He will not be allowed to use the car during the camp session.

Camp Store
A Lacrosse Academy store with protective equipment, sticks, replacement parts, T-shirts, shorts, hats, etc. will be open throughout the entire camp session. The store also sells cold water and sports drinks.

Camp Bank
A camp bank is offered as a service to prevent loss of money. Deposit your money at registration and all purchases at the camp store will be deducted from your account. Money may be withdrawn to spend during free time; any unspent balance will be returned at check out.

Trainers on Site
A certified trainer will be at every field session and will be available at registration to review your medical form.

Obey Camp Rules

Campers will be informed of camp rules and are expected to follow them. Rules include, but are not limited to, no lying, stealing or damaging the property of others and behaving respectfully toward staff and campers. Campers who break rules may be asked to leave camp immediately. Parents will be required to pick up their son early if he is expelled.


Lacrosse is a contact sport played with sticks and a hard ball moving at high speed. This means anyone can be injured while playing lacrosse. To reduce the risk of injury, you must exercise common sense and obey the rules at all times. Even when you play lacrosse according to the rules you expose yourself to serious injury. The protective equipment will not protect you against all injuries. Campers, and parents of campers, participating in The Lacrosse Academy accept the risks of injury.
