HYL Youth Lacrosse Summer Camp FAQs

What is the camp schedule?

We will share our camp schedule with all participants in mid-June (in advance of camp), but a typical camp day includes a mix of skills development sessions appropriate for each player’s age, gender (girls vs. boys lacrosse), and experience level. Our camp is designed for both beginners and experienced players (no experience or equipment is necessary for this camp, but current players should bring all their equipment to camp). 

Do you offer discounts?

Yes! First, a $20 “early bird” discount is available for all families who register their player(s) before May 1, 2022 (use the promo code EARLYBIRD to claim this discount during registration). Discounts are also available for families registering multiple children. We also offer a one-time $20 discount for referring a NEW player for our Youth Lacrosse Summer Camp – just let us know if you have referred a player, and when that player registers, we will provide you with your discount code (must be done prior to you completing your registration). You can’t combine discounts, but there should be one you can take advantage of. Please contact Jeremy Porter (jeremy@henryyouthlax.org or 404.641.9023) if you have any questions and want to make sure you’re getting the best deal on camp. Thanks!

What if we can’t attend all the days at camp?

If you are not able to attend all days at camp, we can provide you with a discount of $20 per day your child will not participate in camp. Please contact Jeremy Porter PRIOR to registering if you plan to register your player for individual days and not the full week of camp.

Are there any additional costs we should know about?

A USA Lacrosse Membership ($30 Annually) is required for participation in ALL Henry Youth Lacrosse programs. If you are registering a new player, you will have the option to purchase a membership during the registration process. If you have participated in any HYL program during the past year, you will have the opportunity to enter your player’s membership number during the registration process (and will not need to pay this additional fee). There are no other additional costs.

What is your plan for rain or excessive heat?

The camp is rain or shine. That said, we will follow safety protocols for lightning and excessive heat. In the event we are unable to do camp on a given day, we will do our best to reschedule the session. We do plan to have safe shelter options in the event of thunderstorms. We will take frequent breaks during camp (in the shade) and will encourage all participants to arrive and stay hydrated throughout the day. We also plan to have a ‘snack break’ in the middle of camp each day. Safety first! 

What equipment do we need for camp?

No equipment is necessary for camp. We will provide sticks for new players during camp. Existing players should bring their equipment to camp. You are welcome to purchase equipment for your player if you would like them to participate in fully-equipped lacrosse instructional sessions, but we will provide sessions for both equipped and non-equipped players and both groups will have the same level of activity and fun during our week at camp.

What is your cancellation policy?

You may cancel your registration for a full refund before May 1, 2022. Our official policy is that refunds will not be issued after May 1, 2022 – if you need to cancel your registration after this date, any full or partial refund is at the discretion of the Camp Director.

When should we arrive at camp for drop-off/pickup?

Player drop-off and check-in will open at 5:00 p.m. each day at camp. We will start camp promptly at 5:30 p.m. On the first day of camp (June 20th), we will have a camper/parent meeting at 5:30 p.m. to review our plan (as well as camper/parent/coach expectations) for the week.

Player pickup will be at 8:30 p.m. each day at camp. We will organize a player tournament on the last day of camp, which we will provide more details on when camp gets closer (in case you would like to attend). 

Can I watch camp?

Parents/guardians are more than welcome to observe camp at any time throughout the week – we just ask that observers do so from the appropriate stadium seats or areas outside of the field fence where activities are going on (for your safety). Just keep in mind, if you come to watch camp, we might ask you to join our team of volunteers! 

What do the camp fees cover?

This Youth Lacrosse Summer Camp is a fundraiser for Henry Youth Lacrosse (a Georgia Non-Profit and 501(c)(3) charity). Your participation in camp provides much-needed resources to support our mission of growing youth lacrosse participation in Henry County, this includes subsidizing the costs of program participation and related equipment expenses, as well as helping us manage formal programs we operate throughout the year (such as our volunteer assistance for P.E. or afterschool programs). Of course, camp fees first cover the actual expenses required to operate the camp, including supplies like balls, cones, goals, backstops, extra equipment for beginners, and the camp jerseys we provide each player. There are also a few ‘surprises’ for our campers during their week at camp that are funded via camp fees (for example, the Kona Ice Truck made a surprise visit last year at camp). If you would like additional information or have questions, please feel free to contact us. And thank you for your support.

Do you still have questions? Just let us know. We want you and your player to have a great time at camp with us this summer! If there’s anything we can do to help, just let us know. Thanks again!
