Lacrosse Camps Ohio @ Ohio Wesleyan University
Pack your bags! Millon Lacrosse Camp is heading West. In recent years, Ohio has established a reputation for being one of the fastest growing lacrosse hotbeds in the nation. That is why we chose to bring our brand of teaching there in 2004…and what a camp it has been. So far, all 12 years, our Ohio lacrosse camp have been sellouts for us, and 2017 is likely to do the same, so be sure to register early!
Ohio Wesleyan’s 200-acre campus is perfectly situated 20 minutes North of Columbus. Equipped with numerous recreational amenities, gourmet quality dining halls, and spacious, air-conditioned dormitories, Ohio Wesleyan was an easy choice to host our westernmost lacrosse camp. Ohio Wesleyan is justifiably proud of its athletic facilities, which rank as a whole among the finest anywhere in NCAA Division III. Selby Field, which seats 9,100, is the fourth-largest college owned field in DIII. It was the site of the 1988 DIII men’s lacrosse championship and the NCAA D3 National Track and Field Championships in 2011 and 2014.

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.
