Garrison Forest Field Hockey, Lacrosse, & Leadership Academy (MD)

Garrison Forest School

Owings Mills, MD 21117


Overview

Who We Are
Field Hockey & Leadership Academy is a camp where players will develop field hockey skills while learning how to become more effective leaders and what it means to be a great teammate. If you are a dual sport athlete- this is an amazing opportunity to training both FH & LX.

At camp, we will help campers learn about being part of something – a team or cause – bigger than themselves. The camp will combine outstanding field hockey instruction with off-field activities and workshops designed to promote teamwork and teach leadership skills. At the end of camp, we want all campers to not only be better field hockey players, but also recognize how as leaders they can be more valuable to their team, their school, and their community.

Learning the critical life lessons to guide you as a responsible member of your school, community, family & team will serve you for years to come. The FHLA role models, the field hockey game & the women’s leadership workshops balanced with some summer fun.

Covid-19 Policy: Proof of Vaccination IS required for all campers in attendance. In addition we ask ALL CAMPERS to bring in there health forms and the Athletic Monitoring Form to camp check-in.

These forms can be found in the camper packet on the Forms Page.

Camp Details

We are excited to announce that for this Summer we will offer campers a multi-sport camp option at our Hotchkiss School Leadership Camp. Campers will have the option to do Lacrosse, Field Hockey or a combination of both.

We are hoping to share the love for the game of lacrosse and field hockey with those players who may want to play lacrosse but prefer a balanced curriculum with field hockey as well.
