Hockey Director Keith Murray whose resume includes 40+ years in hockey, from player to coach to administrator has developed a comprehensive hockey program, best suited to our hockey campers. 

Keith Murray will be returning as our Hockey Director for the summer of 2017. This will be Keith’s 18th summer at HOC and 6th consecutive summer since rejoining us in 2012.

Keith and Camp Director Kevin are close personal friends, having first met back in 1989 when Keith originally came on as Hockey Director and when Kevin was a camp counsellor.

Keith is currently an elementary school principal in Burlington, Ontario. He is a big believer in the value of summer camp, having been a camper at Haliburton Hockey Haven and a counsellor/instructor at Camp Nominingue, Quebec in his youth.  

Keith’s son Sean was a long time HOC camper and is currently on waterski staff. His daughter Rachel is a long time camper, who can’t wait to get back to HOC every summer.

Keith loves spending his summers on Eagle Lake and on the ice at the arena with the campers. He looks forward to putting together another outstanding hockey staff each year as he continues to deliver our “best in class” hockey program.
