Lacrosse Camp Atlanta
One of the oldest and trusted instructional brands in lacrosse is headed to the Atlanta area and the prestigious Oglethorpe University for 2017. Founded in 1994 by former MLL MVP and two-time Team USA member Mark Millon, Millon Lacrosse stands for instruction, period. With over 25,000 athletes coming through our camps we have a wealth of experience and understand how to be safe, organized, and, more than anything, develop the young lacrosse athlete. The camp instructional business is a challenging space and you can’t last over 23 years without doing it right. Please check out our website or give us a call, we would be happy to share more details on what separates us from the rest.
Lacrosse Camp Atlanta @ Oglethorpe University
Oglethorpe University was founded in 1835 and located in the Atlanta suburb of Brookhaven minutes from the Buckhead district and 10 miles from downtown. Oglethorpe University is a liberal arts and sciences university that unites a close-knit campus community with big city culture and opportunities. Today, Oglethorpe enrolls 1,150 students, representing 32 states and 38 countries.
The campus is about a 15-minute drive from the downtown, midtown, and just 21 miles from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
While on campus, our athletes will compete on well-manicured grass and turf field, and overnight campers will stay in one of 7 residence halls designed with camper comfort in mind. Campers will eat in The Petrel’s Nest which is an all-you-care-to-eat dining hall inside the Turner Lynch Campus Center, with tasty options like fresh hot pizza, a crisp and crunchy salad bar, and a Mongolian grill with made-to-order stir-fry.

After 24 years, our curriculum has been proven and refined many times. It is set for all ages and all positions. During the early part of the week, we do a large amount of individual skill building, and as the week moves on, we play games for one reason: to reinforce what was learned during our skill sessions.
