Montreat Lacrosse Camp - Montreat College

COVID-19 Update: Unfortunately, due to the safety concerns related to the COVID-19 outbreak, this year’s summer camp is cancelled. While disappointed, we look forward to returning the camp to our calendar for the summer of 2021 and when those dates are available will post them here. If you have any questions, please contact thomas.flynn@montreat.edu. Thank you!

Montreat Women’s Lacrosse Camp

Few lacrosse camps in the country offer the natural beauty of Montreat College and its Black Mountain campus. Tucked in the mountains of western North Carolina, just 15 minutes east of Asheville, the July 8 -10 camp is at an elevation that ensures less-humidity and more enjoyable lacrosse than most of its counterpart camps in the East.

At the camp, there will be a focus on both fundamentals and advanced skills, perfect for high school athletes from the age of 14-17. Away from the field, campers will experience a faith-based camp with opportunities for hiking, running, biking, and swimming just outside their doors on the Montreat campus.

You’ll have fun, grow in your lacrosse skills, develop your faith, and have the opportunity to explore all that the western North Carolina region has to offer.

Look forward to seeing you this summer!

Coach Tom Flynn
