Homegrown Lacrosse Summer Camp


Homegrown Lacrosse Summer Camps have been a highlight of youth & high school lacrosse players in Minnesota since 2004.

Developed as Minnesota's first youth and high school lacrosse specific camps, our dedicated staff works to develop each player’s strengths - physically and mentally. With one of the lowest camper to counselor ratios in the country (4:1), Homegrown Lacrosse engages and challenges players of all skill levels.

The cornerstone of camp is our Leadership Development Program (L.D.P.) which trains and connects volunteer high school and collegiate counselors to small groups of campers. Throughout the week, L.D.P. counselors participate alongside the campers and provide individual support and encouragement. As a result, each camper gets a mentor they can look up to and rely on.

The safety of our campers, counselors, and staff is the highest priority. We will be following all St. Thomas, MDH, and CDC guidelines for COVID-19 & Youth Sports. As we get closer to the dates of camp we will release the exact safety protocols and rules.



Hikes along the beautiful Mississippi River are a staple during our time at the University of St. Thomas.


Enjoy all-you-can-eat style meals from UST's top ranked cafeteria (ask your counselor about the world record ice cream cone).


Gladiator, Slip N' Lax, and Fortnite are just a few of the Camp Games invented at summer camp that are classics every year.
