 Location and Travel

Campers will participate in lacrosse activities at three locations:

  • Michigan Lacrosse Stadium (2500 South State Street, Ann Arbor MI 48104)
  • Michigan Stadium (the football stadium - 1200 South Main Street, Ann Arbor MI 48104)
  • Indoor Training Center (1000 South State Street, Ann Arbor MI 48109). 

The specifics of which campers will be where will be communicated prior to camp.  We provide transportation throughout the day.  Every camper will use all three spaces during the camp.

Housing and meals will take place in the South Quad Dormitory (600 E. Madison, Ann Arbor, MI 48109).

Campers flying in should fly into Detroit Metropolitan Airport (25 minutes from Ann Arbor).  Michigan Lacrosse Camps cannot provide transportation from Detroit Metropolitan to Ann Arbor.

 Check-In

The check-in process will take place in two stages on the Michigan campus.  Stage 1 takes place on the Stephen Ross Athletic Campus (1000 South State Street) and Stage 2 takes place at the South Quad dormitory (600 East Madison).  Stage 1 will check the camper in, we will collect any necessary medication, and our on-site athletic trainers will be present to answer any questions.  Stage 2 will be the housing portion where campers get their room key.

All campers will then meet in the designated meeting space outside of the dorm at 5:15pm in preparation to depart for the evening session.

 Commuter Campers

  • Commuter campers should arrive towards the end of check-in (4:00pm - 4:30pm) due to their expedited check-in process.
  • Commuter campers should be dropped off at South Quad every morning no later than 8:30am (buses depart each morning at 8:45am) and can be picked up at South Quad following the end of the evening session, or at South Quad following the end of the optional evening class-room session.
