In collaboration with several Provincial Sport Organizations, each day will feature a pair of sport showcases focused on basic skill development and mini-games led by some of our sport-specific coaches and athletes.

Our lunch break will take place in the classroom so we can talk and learn about the feature sport of the day or hear from special guest speakers.

There will also be sports-themed word searches, trivia, and more. Between sport showcases and lunch, we’ll play coordination games and continue to develop overall physical literacy.

If your child wants to try a variety of sports, further their athletic development, and is open to learning what it takes to be a well-rounded athlete, this is the summer camp for them!

 

The camp program includes:

  • Sport showcases including badminton, basketball, volleyball, flag football, fencing, cricket, tennis, and curling
  • Reaction and communication games: dodgeball, tchoukball, spike (reaction) ball, handball, and more
  • Lunch and learn sessions: Sports of the day educational videos and rules

 

What to bring:

Indoor shoes, gym clothes, water bottle, lunch, snacks.

Full program details will be sent to parents via email in mid-July.

 

The benefits of multi-sport

A camp like this is excellent for kids to experience the benefits of playing multiple sports. For example, did you know that participating in a variety of sports can help them excel in their chosen sport down the line? It can also benefit their overall athleticism, help prevent overuse injuries, and it keeps sport fun!
