Located in the beautiful Almaguin Highlands of Northern Ontario, Hockey Opportunity Camp offers everything you want your child to experience in a perfect summer camp setting.
Just a few short hours from Toronto, the Almaguin Highlands is the perfect location for campers to escape the city and truly experience a Northern Ontario summer camp experience. The property and location has it all; rugged trails winding through the forest, clean and pristine waterfront, traditional & comfortable cabins and an outdoor playground of activities.
Our peninsula, one of our most prominent features, provides a natural shelter for our busy waterfront, where campers swim, water ski, play beach volleyball and hangout with friends. The large covered pavilion with picnic tables down at the beach is host to many fun outdoor camper barbecues.
The main lodge serves as our social centre and dining room. Meals are provided by professional caterers who specialize in serving the summer camp community. Our chef prepares well-balanced meals and our baker prepares fresh breads and desserts baked on-site daily. Meals are served family style and are all you can eat.
Two large recreational halls ensure that alternate summer camp programming can continue indoors in inclement weather.
There are a number of recreation facilities spread throughout camp including our versatile outdoor sports rink system that works great as an outdoor training facility, beach volleyball courts, lakeside campfire coliseum, outdoor vertical climbing wall, designated swimming/beach front areas, running/biking trails, a huge sand pit for kids to explore and 150m x 150m groomed playing field used for a variety of activities.
Campers live in cabins housing between 8-12 campers. Each cabin is supervised by a counsellor who sleeps in a separate room within the cabin. Large restrooms with flush toilets, hot and cold running water and showers are located adjacent to all cabins.
Senior camp is a separate facility designed specifically for our older campers. This private setting is equipped with a beach volleyball court and a large recreation hall with indoor basketball court.
Water for the entire camp is sourced from two 400+ foot deep wells, and pumped through a state of the art commercial water treatment system. The system is equipped with both primary and secondary disinfection. Water testing is done daily to monitor chlorine levels (secondary disinfection) ensuring water is safe to consume at all times. In the event of a power outage, the facility has a generator backup for the main dining hall and kitchen facilities, as well as the treated water system and main camp office. The entire water system is inspected by the Ministry of Environment (MOE) under Regulation 170 of the Safe Drinking Water Act.
