Lacrosse Camp in Maine – Summer Lacrosse Camp
Lacrosse has become one of the more popular sports offered at Bridgton Sports Camp. The program is built to improve your game, whether it’s your first time picking up a stick or you’re getting serious about the game. After 3 weeks of hard work on the field, campers go home with an improved skill set and confidence in their abilities.
The goal of the lacrosse program at Bridgton Sports Camp is to allow our campers to leave as better skilled, more confident athletes. We will help to develop a player’s all-around game while allowing each camper time to focus on the position of their choice. We will work to improve their general lax IQ, emphasizing strategy, techniques, and teamwork. This understanding of the game of lacrosse will be taught through drills, intra-camp scrimmaging, as well as games against local camps. Our campers leave as better all-around players on the field and as more mature young men off of the field.
Derek Marshall is currently the Head Coach at Bridgton Academy. Derek started his collegiate playing career at Dean College where he was named the 2013 defensive playing career. He continued playing at Lasell University and received a degree in exercise science and coaching. After graduating Derek worked with several college and university varsity athletic programs, specifically with their strength & conditioning training regiments. This led to Derek working as an Assistant Lacrosse Coach at Wheaton College. Derek has a passion for the game and is excited to share is wisdom with BSC campers.
Our lacrosse instruction will cover the following skill set:
- Goalie Skills
- Switching Hands
- Face Off
Majoring in lacrosse has made me a better lax players because of the talented coaching staff. I love the drills and games we play every day. Also being one of the younger campers and having some of the older campers help out has made me a better athlete.Chris (3-year camper from CT)

Singalongs and s’mores campfire, Morning Reveille sneaking around the lake to gawk at girls or boys at sister / brother camp: Summer night camp rituals are loved and revered by the time.As with university, there are endless options, but there really are only a few for a specific set: Ivy League summer camps.
Often located in Maine, many of the best camps have been around for nearly a century, offering children ages 7-16 several weeks of summer fun, sun and stress. While the camps of the past focused on the basics – canoeing, archery, ceramics, trekking – the more elite camps have changed over time. Now it’s not uncommon to find gluten-free kitchens, full-fledged fitness centers offering spinning and Pilates, and university-quality sports fields – in addition to all the old residents, of course.Kids still pass out on wooden bunk beds after a day of dizzying activities, but now there is often bathroom, laundry and air conditioning, and instead of arriving by bus or rented car, it’s not unheard of for families to fly in on a private jet.

90,000 Maine police detained a forest hermit: People: From life: Lenta.ru
Police in the city of Rome in the US state of Maine, after years of fruitless attempts on April 4, managed to detain a mysterious Hermit from the North Pond, whose existence the locals could only guess. Christopher Knight lived in the forest for 27 years, practically without coming into contact with people. The hermit’s visits to settlements were reduced to theft – in rest camps, shops, private houses and other places, he got food and things needed in everyday life.Police suspect 47-year-old Knight of involvement in more than a thousand such crimes.
During his studies at school, Knight, who grew up, in his own words, in a prosperous family, planned to become a computer specialist (as evidenced by a photo dated 1984), but in 1986 he left civilization and settled in the forest. Knight said that this decision was made shortly after the Chernobyl accident, but the hermit did not directly link his act with the disaster, simply stating that he wanted to be alone.
Christopher set up his camp in full accordance with military history science: the tent was turned with exits to the west and east in order to get the maximum sun, a green awning was stretched over it for camouflage purposes. In addition, during his 27 years in the forest, Knight never made a fire, and masked shiny metal objects with earth and moss – he was afraid that the camp might be spotted from the air.
On the coldest nights (in winter the temperature in those places drops below minus 10 degrees), the forest dweller had to wrap himself up in several sleeping bags.He used a gas stove to cook his meals, which he stole from nearby recreational facilities such as Bear Spring Camps and Pine Tree Camp. The last camp, according to its administrators, generally became for Knight “the closest supermarket to the house” – the hermit visited there regularly and carried out mainly provisions. Moreover, according to the victims, Knight was very picky about the extraction – he never took products that could quickly deteriorate or were doubtful, from his point of view, packed.
Christopher Knight’s camp
Locals, naturally, could not help but notice the raids on their possessions. Some even began to specially leave food for the mysterious tramp in unprotected places in order to avoid hacking. Others initiated a raid on him, combing the forest with the police, but it was all to no avail. The precautions taken by Christopher fully paid off. According to the owner of the Bear Spring Camps, many hunted near the hermit’s habitat, but no one could suspect that a human dwelling was hidden behind a pile of windbreak and stones.
During one of his foraging forays, Knight was nearly caught by Dave Proulx, the owner of a house nearby. After about a dozen raids, Prolx decided to look for the thief and found him at the crime scene on a moonless and, moreover, rainy night. Grabbing a searchlight, the owner rushed in pursuit of the burglar, but he managed to run to the shore of the North Pond and hide in a canoe prepared in advance.
Ranger Terry Hughes, who works in the Pine Tree Camp, the same one that Knight is used to using as a supermarket, managed to catch the Hermit from the North Pond.Hughes spent several years trying to track down the spy and eventually installed motion-sensor cameras at the recreation center. When the cameras recorded a suspicious (that is, a moving) object, the signal went straight to Hughes’ home. One night, it was this alarm that allowed the gamekeeper to red-handed detain Christopher Knight, in whose back bag there was a stolen food in the amount of 238 dollars.

Police Knight told police that he had the only verbal contact with a person in 27 years around the mid-1990s, accidentally bumping into a stranger on the path and exchanging with him greetings.Christopher brightened loneliness with the help of a battery-powered radio, on which he especially liked to listen to the show of Rush Limbaugh, a radio host and a conservative politician. Knight’s favorites also included a radio station that broadcast rock music.
Psychologists and other experts who discussed the story of the Hermit from the North Pond agreed that Knight, although he fled from civilization, did not stop enjoying the benefits of this very civilization. During the arrest, he was clean-shaven and short-haired – the hermit did both procedures with his own hand.In addition, Knight was quite decently dressed – in appearance, he could not be mistaken for a man who had lived in the forest for 27 years. He even wore glasses – old-fashioned, clearly borrowed from him back in the 1980s.
Initially, Christopher Knight asked the police not to contact his relatives, but after the story of the Hermit from the North Pond was picked up by the press and television, he agreed that the police warned his mother, Joyce, who lives nearby.The detainee also asked the state to provide him with a lawyer. Shortly after his arrest, Knight was charged with several thefts from the Pine Tree Camp, but in the future he will have to answer in court for many more episodes.
