Woodstock, CT—On Monday, July 11, Hyde School, a leader in character education and leadership development, welcomed more than 70 lacrosse players to its Woodstock campus for a week-long lacrosse camp.
Ranging in age from 6 to 18, lacrosse camp attendees participated in a variety of drills and activities geared towards improving their skill level, as well as a number of scrimmages.
The coaching staff included Hyde School faculty and alumni lacrosse players, many of whom now play at the collegiate level. Bob Felt, Associate Head of School, headed the staff. Felt was a two-time All-American lacrosse player at Springfield College, was named 1994 NCAA player of the year and midfielder of the year, and was a member of the Boston Blazers Major Indoor Lacrosse League.
More than 30 of the students participating in the lacrosse camp are day students from the local area.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to have so many local families be with us for a full day of Hyde lacrosse,” says Felt. “It’s been great to have their energy on the turf, and to get to work with all of the different kids.”
The Hyde School approach to education has been developed since 1966 at the Hyde boarding campuses in Bath, Maine, and Woodstock, Connecticut, and through public school initiatives in New Haven, Connecticut and Bronx and Brooklyn, New York. The organization, based in Bath, also includes national parenting workshops and wilderness experiences.
Ninety eight percent of Hyde School graduates are accepted to four-year colleges. To learn more about Hyde Schools, its summer leadership programs, and parenting and teen workshops, log on to Hyde.edu.
