Merestead, the oldest sports camp for girls in the United States, moves into its 66th consecutive season of summer camps for individual players, teams and coaches.
Merestead offers camps with unique programs in field hockey and lacrosse- which encourage players to grow and excel as athletes and team players.
From its beginning in 1946, Merestead has emphasized the international ties that link players of these two great international sports. Merestead's coaching staff includes experienced US high school and college coaches, many of whom have played or coached at the US level. In addition, the staff include experienced international coaches and players from England, Spain, Holland and South Africa.
Merestead sets itself apart from other camps with our staff. Professional educators, who supervise the curriculum and daily program, oversee this world class coaching staff. We don't make shoes or sticks, we teach the sport.
