Homegrown Lacrosse Summer Camps

Homegrown Lacrosse’s Summer Camps have been a highlight of youth lacrosse in Minnesota since 2004.

Developed as some Minnesota's first youth and high school specific camps, Homegrown Lacrosse's philosophy focuses on building each player’s strengths - physically and mentally. With one of the lowest counselors to camper ratios in the country (1:4), Homegrown Lacrosse engages and challenges player of all skill levels.

One of the unique aspects of the Homegrown Lacrosse Summer Youth Camp is the Leadership Development Program (L.D.P.) which trains and connects volunteer high school counselors to small groups of campers. Throughout the week, the L.D.P. counselors participate alongside with the campers and provide individual support and encouragement. As a result, every camper has some one to look up to and someone looking after them.
