Is my son safe at Millon Lacrosse Camp?

    Safety is an important focus for us at Millon Lacrosse Camp. Throughout the 20 years of successful summer camp sessions and through our many more years of experience managing camps, Millon International has developed detailed rules and regulations in order to provide a safe atmosphere at the camp.

    Each camper stays in a specified dorm which is supervised 24 hours a day. Millon Camp hires a specific Safety Director whose job for the week is to oversee all safety details and monitor the campers. A requirement of our staff is that they are assigned to rooms on each of the floors with the campers.

    In addition, all of the SUNY schools have their own police force, which is stationed throughout the campus 24 hours, seven days a week. They will be touring the dorms and field areas throughout the week. After 10 p.m. the campus is only accessible through one main gated stationed by a SUNY police officer.

    When your son checks in for camp and there are specific medical problems we need to be aware of, we will arrange for him to visit with our certified trainer or Emergency Medical Technician at that time.


    Why should I attend Millon International Lacrosse Camp?

    Twenty years ago, Mark Millon, one of the top lacrosse players in the world, developed what has become the premiere teaching camp for young lacrosse players. Mark is not only a great player but a student of the game and has developed a philosophy for teaching that has been the recipe for his success.

    Mark has specifically developed his curriculum so that it focuses on how a young lacrosse athlete should develop in order to compete at a top high school or college or at the professional level.

    Most importantly though, you’ll be working with and interacting with Mark for most of the instruction during the week. Some camps highlight top players who only show up for an appearance and don’t spend time getting to know you and your game. That’s not the case at Millon Lacrosse Camp, where Mark will be at each camp for all of the instruction.

    Additionally, Mark takes more than a year to develop his camp staff and bases his selections on players who are exceptional at teaching the game. The curriculum incudes drills, teaching, games, specialized position work and as always having fun.

    If that’s not enough to answer your question, the other awesome element of camp is the combination of incredible facilities and great giveaways. Each camper gets a Warrior stick, a subscription to Inside Lacrosse magazine plus more. All of these make the Millon camp unmatched by any other out there.


    Is Millon lacrosse camp better for a specific position?

    No, not at all. Each summer we have an even number of players at each position and the feedback is in incredible across the board. While the director, Mark Millon, plays attack, there are also positional directors for each position. These directors will be professional MLL players or NCAA head coaches. The instruction level at each position will be equal and incredible.


    What level of player is Millon lacrosse camp suited for?

    We have players from the youth level beginners right up through high level JV and varsity players. Millon Lacrosse prides itself on being able to cater to each and every player’s skill level. Our goal is to make every player who attends camp regardless of the level a better player.

    If you are a total beginner you will leave camp with an idea about the game and how to get better. If you are a good varsity player you will leave a better varsity player. Overall the level of competition at our camp is high.

    In our Future Stars camp, the teaching is geared toward the younger, beginning player. The instruction will use a fun based approach in teaching the basic skills and then use them as the primary building blocks to teach more detailed skills such as team strategy and offensive and defensive philosophies.


    What is a typical day of the overnight or extended day camp like?

    We have three sessions per day. Early in the week we do a good deal of teaching and we progress towards playing a lot of games later in the week. We ask that throughout the “game” schedule campers work on what they learned in camp and their weaknesses rather than work on what they are already good at.

    If I signed up for a specialty clinic, what time do I check in?

    If you have signed up for one of our specialty clinics, you will have one specific time that you are required to check in. This is irrelevant to your status as a day camper or overnight camper. Your check in time will be on the first day of camp between 8:00 am and 8:45 am. This will give you time to get your child settled in their room before reconvening at 9:00 am to begin the specialty clinic.


    Can I sign up late for a specialty clinic?

    In most cases, we can accept late sign ups for our specialty clinics. They will not always be open to sign up at the last minute. You can always call or email to find out the status of the specialty clinics. We will accept walk-ups if we can!


    What are the correct bed sheet sizes?

    The bad news is that every camp location has both sizes of beds. The bed width for all the locations is the same. It is twin size width and Millon Lacrosse recommends that you bring the extra-long sheets to camp. In overview, the best size you can bring is a set of twin extra-long sheets.


    How can I check and pay my camp tuition balance?

    The best way to check your remaining balance for camp tuition is to revisit your email and find the receipt you received upon registration for camp. The receipt will show your remaining balance. If you cannot find your receipt, please contact us via email at info@millonlacrosse.com to receive a reply email with your balance.

    How are the dorm rooms situated?

    The rooms are situated dorm style in most of the facilities. This means that each bedroom will consist of the two roommates with two beds, dressers, and desks. There are many rooms that may hold three and we do offer 3 person rooms at certain camps. Please call to find out which! Farmingdale is a little bit difference. They boast suite style dorms that’s consist of single and double bedrooms conjoined by a kitchen/common area and bathroom that are private to each suite. The suites will either contain 2 two person bedrooms or 2 two person and 1 single bedrooms. Please email us to find out any additional information you may seek.


    Can we come watch games?

    You can come watch games! We play most of our games after dinner when it is a bit cooler outside. You are absolutely allowed to come watch your child play. We only ask that you be respectful and remember that competition is the last thing on our minds. We want every camper to get better when they attend camp, and that begins with a stable learning environment. On the last day our camp, we strongly encourage parents to attend the games to watch the children play. It makes the atmosphere that much better with a big friendly crowd!


    How can I find my son to watch him?

    Millon Lacrosse Staff will be knowledgeable on exactly where each age group is located on the camp facility. Millon Lacrosse will also provide a map with specific details on it to help locate their child. The quickest and easiest way to find out is to contact your own camper. They will know exactly where they’re playing by the second day. One more thing to keep in mind, if you cannot locate your child and you are 100% sure you’re at the right place, the camper most like got moved up an age group relevant to their skill level and learning curve.


    How is the roommate request honored?

    Roommate requests are strictly guaranteed up to two weeks before camp. Within 2 weeks of camp, Millon lacrosse will still do their best to match your child up with their requests roommate. For the most part, we should be able to come up with a reasonable solution that will leave everyone ready to start camp! Please email us if you have questions regarding the roommate request procedure.


    Will there be swimming pools and does my child need to pack a bathing suit?

    Most of the facilities do host an aquatic center on campus. Our recommendation is that you always pack a bathing suit just in case. The aquatic centers are usually run at the facility’s leisure and availability. While your child may not use his bathing suit, it will be much better to be prepared then not!
